I woke up early this morning at about 6:00 a.m. I came out of my room and my family were already up. They were watching the news without me knowing what's going on. So, when I went to use the restroom, I came back outside. I heard my Pastor telling my Grandma to come and watch the news of what's happening at New York. So I decided to go along with my Grandma. I was so shocked when I saw the clip when the plane crashed into the twin tower. I felt so emotional for those who lost their loved ones that was on that plane, and for the people that was in the tower also. I like to send out my love to those who died. I am a junior from Waipahu High School in Honolulu, HI.

On the morning of 911 I awoke by my alarm. It was around 6:00a.m. About to turn off the radio to go back to sleep, I heard that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. My eyes wide open eager to know how did this plane crash into the World Trade Center. I got up and ran to the living room to turn on the t.v. Mostly all the channels were talking about this. They kept on showing it and showing it. I was so shocked and surprised that this had happened. As one of the reporters were talking in the background i could see another plane crash right into the other Trade Center. All these thoughts have jumbled in my head, how did it happened, there must be a lot of people who died in that plane...etc. As i was getting ready to go to school I turned my t.v. to the fullest. A few minutes had past and i had to go to my grandmas house. As I was going to be droped off at my grandmas house I turned on the radio to know what was happening. I had found out that it was a terroist attack. As soon as I got to my grandmas house my grandma and grandpa were also wathcing it. A couple of minutes later two more planes had crashed one into the pentagon and one that just fell to the ground. This plane that fell to the ground didnt hit its target because there were heroic people who attacked the terroists. These planes were hijacked by some afghanistan people or people who belonged to Osama Binladin. Osama Binladin is the main supect who had planned this attack against america. The more I watched this tragic moment thoughts and thoughts kept flashing in my head. Especially when i thought about my mom and my family because one of the planes that crashed was United Airlines and this is what we ride. I pictured my self being in that plane about to die. As the two buildings were burning you could see many people jumping off the building falling to their death and many people screeming. Then all of a sudden these two tall buildings fell down and my heart stopped. Though there was this one thing that bothered me, I was wondering that why didnt these people who died in the plane try to stop these terroist. All they had was a box cutter or some kind of kinfe. They should of at least try to beat them up if they know there gonna die anyways. Like that plane that didnt reach its target because they had people who tried to stop them. If your gonna die might as well try. But you know I feel for those who had lost their lives. Also in school many teachers were letting there students watch the news and to know whats happening. To me this Tragic and horifying event had made everyone sad and angry but it kept us together. To be strong and beat this terroists. UNITED WE STAND. Nothing will break our pride as AMERICANS.

My heart goes out to all those who had lost their lives and those who are trying to re live life with their loved ones death.

---------DAMN YOU OSAMA!!!!!!!----------

well during the time when the twin towers went down I remembered going to school and mostly everybody were talking about but I didn't believe it until I've seen the actual thing happen on t.v..My reaction was shocked when I seen it.I told my family as soon as they got home from work but they didn't have any clue what I was talking about till I turned the t.v. on because every news station were talking about it.And you should have seen my mother's face.It dropped when she saw those 2 buildings collapse.And all I wanted to say to those people who lost their loved ones that we are all here for you no matter what.And the people that died that very day R.I.P.!

On that day the twin towers fell I thought that I was having a bad dream. Before the night of 9/11 I left my radio on and I forgot to turn it off. So the next morning I kept hearing America was attacK!, I was still half asleep and I thought I was just dreaming. When I actually woke up that day on 9/11 I heard from the radio that someone has attacked the twin towers in New York. I was shocked by the terrible news I woke up my sister telling her what had happend. My sister had a friend who came to Hawaii for a vacation and she was from New york. She left Hawaii to go back to New York a week before the 9/11 attck happened. My sister e-mailed her to see if she was Ok and how was things there at N.Y. Seeing all those peole who were running for their lives when the twin tower fell made me fell so sad that I wanted to cry. Those people that I've seen on T.V's must of have kids at home that was worried about them, hoping that they will survive the most crucial act somone did to innocent americans. After the event on 9/11 I felt so much more patriotic than ever before.

I woke up and my dad told me "shan, look the twins tower in NY" I was like "what? huh?" "what are you talking about?" then, he explained to me what had happened.. and I was furious!! I didnt expect terrorists would go that far.. But, they did..
