Precious lives taken from those that loved

them the most are now gone into a place of

eternal rest and comfort.

Those that took their precious lives will

never live to rememeber what they did to

deserve eternal punishment.

I wrote this the day of the attacks on America. This poem is for all those who lost their lives that day and for our wonderful country. I was in band outside marching when we were told about the attacks, we stopped marching to say a long prayer for the nation.

I was at school when the first plane hit the world trade center. The bell had just rang and I was walking to class with one of my friends that I liked and before she went to her class and I to mine. I asked her to homecomming. I felt like I was a million dollars when she said yes, then I went into class. I walked in and everyone was glued to the television. The second plane had hit the tower.

I first heard about it at school.I got to school and everyone was talking about it. At first I thought it wa a rumor, since rumors are always going around at school. But when my mom picked me up early right before lunch, I knew it was real. Then we went home and watched CNN. I felt so helpless. STAND TALL AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!

My feelings on that day have already been echoed many times on this site before....The disbelief, the shock, the pain...the anger. It is comforting to know that I am not alone in my pain, even now, nearly a year later.
I heard of the events little by little as they unfolded. My first knowledge of it was via a phone call early in the morning, and I watched as the 2nd plane hit, the towers fall, the plane hit the Pentagon, and the crash in PA. I remember being very scared, and thinking "What next..." as I live only 10 minutes north of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Part of me could sigh a bit of relief when Bush grounded the planes. I was glued to the TV for days. Every time the image was replayed, I cried a little bit harder, as the enormity of the mass destruction and loss of life sank in. I still can't take it all in-

I am encouraged by the humanity shown by the people of the United States in the weeks, months, even now following those events. The pain will never go away, I fear. We were truly united as one- What an amazing thing to witness. Let us not forget. God Bless America, and all that is right in the world.

I was at my desk atwhen a co-worker called me to tell me the news. At the time, she had just heard about one of the towers. I immediately got on the internet and tried to find something out. There were no televisions in our office, so we had to rely on radios. I think many of us (including myself) were in shock and didn't believe what was happening. For one, we weren't getting all of the facts and would hear bits and pieces. It wasn't until after arriving home, that I turned on the television and found out how serious it was. I cried for the children that lost parents that day. I cried for those siblings that lost the other. I cried for days and wondered when I listened to 'God Bless the USA' in my car, doesn't anyone else feel this way? Though my tears stopped, September 11, 2001 will be a day never forgotten. God Bless!
