I was at work when I heard the news, My husband had called me to tell me the trade towers had fallen. I felt so cut off from everything because we had no T.V. or Radio to recieve the news. When I got home and was watching CNN I sat and cried, it seemed so unreal and like a bad movie, but deep down I knew this was no movie, it was the most horible thing I have ever seen in my life.

On September 11th 2001 I was at School singing O Canada. Nobody had known what happened the morning. We never knew until that afternoon. But yet we still never knew how bad it was until we got home and had saw what had happened on the news..

My comments on Septmeber 11th? Well for one I am terrible sorry to all the victims of September 11th and all the familys who lost memebers. My birthday is that day so it wasn't all that fun watching people all depressed. I felt horrible for it. It was a tragic day that will never be forgotten.

My bf and I woke up at 9:30 a.m. because his sister called. He got off the phone and walked into the kitchen and said, "The Twin Towers are gone!" I've never been to NY so I wasn't comprehending him. He explained the devastation involved, saying "This is HUGE!!"
I work in news so I called my boss and she was frazzled and said, "Yes, come in to work!" even though I wasn't scheduled that day. As I drove to work I listened to the radio which was broadcasting media interviews etc. At work it was a MADHOUSE. I could barely fit myself into rooms to look at news feeds. A lot of us worked 18 hr shifts for about 3 days after.
I hope that people understand that it's not an entire race of people or religion (e.g. Muslims) who must be punished - it's only a specific terrorist group.
This event, I hope, has created awareness for everyone, and compassion for each other.

I was in my car on the way to work - they mentioned the first tower being hit, and it ocurred to me that a massive error had taken place in a plane's navigation system. By the end of the newscast, they mentioned that the second tower had also been hit -- that's when it took on a whole new characteristic. It didn't seem to me that there was *any* way that two planes' systems could possibly go that horribly awry. As I was teaching classes that morning, snatching radio news bits between periods, the drama began to unfold... I wasn't able to make it to a TV until late that night after a string of meetings, and then I couldn't pull myself away from the CNN webcasts of the events.

God's blessings of peace to all killed, injured, or connected to those who were, as well as blessings of hope to my American neighbours.
