September 11-2001 A day that will always be remembered. A day of horror, pain, shock, and fear. Yet still, those are not the only emotions that went through minds of Americans everywhere. At a time of distress and grief we felt honor, and witnessed heroism. We should be proud of the leadership skills that were shown. Damage was done, but we pulled through and as a nation we united.

I was actually in school, i'm 14. I was in social studies, period for, when my social studies teacher had filled us all in on what was going on. I asked if I could go to the office to see if the needed anything. I was walking trought the hall, when one of the aids, Mrs. Encke, came up to me and said that we needed to stay in our classrooms. I asked if she needed anything, becuase she seemed upset. She said, that all she needed was to keep the 6th and 7th graders calm, and to tell all the 8th graders to try to help, and for us to stay calm also. We all did, but the sad thing was, with all my skools immatuarity, they were all fixed, on getting out of school. I wanted to get home, talk to my parents, and ask them what was going on. But, no body really knew. WE all sat infront of the tv, hopeing, praying, that is wasn't as bad as it looked, but it was. Peopl had died, and although we cried, we knew it wasn't as bad as what the families felt.
On behalf of My family, friends and I, I would like to send out, my deepest sypathy, to the famlies who have lost loved ones. And I would also like to send out Thanks, to all the firefighters, police men, and all that helped in all that could be done. I wish I could have done more, but, since I am only 14, I couldn't, and all I can do, is reasure you, that you all have my prayers, and thanks
With all my love ~~~

Hi im 14 years old. My name is Diana i was in school when the twin towers were hit by a plane. I was in reading class when some classmate came in and told us that the twin towers had been hit by a plane i though it was a joke and i started to laugh. But it wasnt a joke, I took it serious when parents started picking up their kids, but i was like it cant be true! I went to science class and a teacher came in the classroom and told my teacher that the twin towers had been hit. At that time i was shocked....after that i went to english class and my teacher was crying hearing the news and as i was listening i wanted to cry too. I thank God that none of my relatives died, but for those who lost a relative a feel sorry for them i know that i would never feel their pain they have sufered...for those people that died they are my heroes...but for me they havent died they are around us, with us and they are alive in our hearts for ever.

I am a 14 year old girl from australia and want to say that the tragic events that happened on september 11th 2001 were very terrible and touched my hearts deeply. i was at school when i first found out about what had happened and i just want everyone who knew or was related to on of the lost souls on that day, that my heart goes out to them and i cant and never will be able to imagine what pain they were and are going through. even though i knew none of the unfortunate that lost their lives i shead tears for them and prey they rest in peace in the beautiful afterlife ahead of them.

One morning, I woke up and imediatley heard my Mother say "Oh My god." I sprung out of bed to see what was happening. I should of stayed in bed.

Every single channel, looped replays of a scene witch will stay with me forever.
The first plane, then the other one, over and over again, then the one at the pentagon, over and over again.
