I was in social studies class tring to pay attention when they announced we had to stay in class a couple minutes longer and I had a weird feeling something was wrong. I was very mad about what had happened and I wondered who would do this. I hope who ever did this will pay.

On September 11th, I was at school, like normal. We didn't watch our classroom news that morning, so we had no idea what was going on. I didn't learn about what had happened until it was roughly 10 AM in NYC. They kept showing the collapse over and over again, the news was depressing. The TV stations seemed to only have national news on except when President Bush gave his speeches. His words were comforting in this time of tragedy. It will be painful to think about for all of my life, as it is something very hard to deal with. Thousands dead, thousands more without a family member. I was lucky and did not lose anyone that I know and I could only wish that more people could say the same. God (or whomever you choose to celebrate) Bless America.

The Worst of 9-11-01

The first time I heard about September eleventh, I was at home getting ready for school in front of the TV I have in my room. I heard that a plane hit The World Trade Center in New York. I told my mom to come and see this plane crash in New York on the TV. I thought it was just a crash, but about fifteen minutes later another plane hit the other tower and right then and there I knew that this no accident.
When I got to school, my teacher, Mrs. Bernath was listening to it on the radio. She was in tears. I felt like crying too! I felt so bad for the people in the building at the time of the crash. They immediately evacuated the White House. We were told that all planes were to land and that flights were cancelled, but they couldn’t find a couple of the planes. Those planes that were missing, hit the Pentagon in Washington D.C, they hit a field in Pennsylvania and The Twin Towers. All four of the planes had passengers on them.
When I got home I turned on the TV and turned to channel nine to see if anything else happened. Nothing else happened but I did hear that the terrorists were heading for Chicago and that is where I live. They were planning to attack The Sears Tower. I was so scared but I was glad that they didn’t attack. I called my neighbor Julie to talk to her about what happened and she told me that they were taking older men and women that didn’t have kids to fight for America. Now I was really scared because at the time my Uncle Chris was eighteen and he but he didn’t offer to go.
To me this was a horrible event to hear about. This affects me in so many ways that I just can’t explain. I’m just lucky that I didn’t lose anyone to this event. This effects many in millions of ways and it is really sad. I’m sorry that people lost their family and closest friends to something they weren’t involved in. Now is the one year anniversary on this incident and it will be hard for kids, adults and seniors. I’m sorry that this happened and if I had one wish it would be that this never happened and the millions of people who died can be here right now, with their families, home and safe.

September 11, 2001 began a normal day in the 7th grade for me. When I got to my second period class, I saw the tv on, and everyone was watching it. I asked someone what happened and was told that a plane had crashed into on of the World Trade Centers. I thought it was just a plane crash, and didn't give it too much thought. Then I saw the second plane hit and pinpointed the exact moment when our world changed forever. One girl in my class began to cry. I watched in horror as our own plane hit our building and collapsed, causing more destruction then I ever imagined. I saw our nation's weakness. I saw evil. I saw terrorism.
