I remember the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers like it was yesterday. My first block teacher Mr.Owens came in the room and told the class about it. I was so shock that I couldn't do my work.I wondered and wondered about how many people was killed and how many people lost their love ones. Then I kept saying to myself that I hope that the terrorist won't want to come to my country and do the same thing to us.But some people thought that it was a laughing matter but I took it serious because it might just happen to our country to. Well September 11 will be remembered for centuries.

On September 11,2001

When the attack on America happened I was in P.E. class with Mr. Gowin and he told the class about what happened.I was sad because what if we had did that to them they would feel the same way we do. Then when I got home my mother told me that the Pentigon had been hit too. It made me even sader then I was before because my mom told me that one of her friend's husband was in the Pentigon.My
feelings now are better because they
haven't done anything else and I'm glad.

On September 11 2001

I was out side in P.E. class we were playing basketball.When my P.E. teacher came out side to tell us the the trade center was hit by a plane I could care less because I did not know about it and how much the trade center meant to some people.But now I know that the world trade center was an important place.And how many people died in it. I know that this was very hard for some people.So I do care because I now know about it.

On September 11, 2001 I was in my homeroom class, which was Mr. Owens. The first time i heard about the attacks was in that class. Coach rushed in and started to yell what was going on to Mr. Owens. He had come in unexpectedly, so we were all like, "what?", so he had to repeat it all over again. When it finally sunk in what was happening, my first thought was that i hope they don't come to Virginia. But after a few minutes I began to think more about the ones who lost their loved ones and about the ones who lost their own lives. So god bless America and the families of those killed on September 11.

I gave birth to my first child 2 months before the tragedy. I remember waking up because she was sleeping later than usual. I came out to the living room and turned on the news and saw the first tower in flames. It had just been hit. My daughter woke up and my husband came into the living room with her and together we watch in horror as the second tower was hit and then collapsed moments later. All we could think about were all those people whose families were, in a single moment, torn apart. Two hours after the second tower collapsed, my daughter smiled for the first time. It was a sign that we would all make it throught this awful time.
