I was sitting in a diner with seven other new freshmen from my school. It was our "Welcome Week," when we were all asigned a senior to (though they didn't actually say this) humiliate us. They dressed us up in stupid outfits and made us hold embarassing signs. So anyway, there I was sitting in this dingy old diner dressed as a clown when I heard the news. At first I thought that all the teasing my senior had done to my hair had affected my hearing. I didn't quite understand. One senior was talking with her mother on her cell phone about it. We were quiet listening to the bits and pieces of what she said. Of course, at this time the facts weren't at all straight-- "There are planes dropping bombs... There's a fire in the white house... Something's up at the Pentagon... The Twin Towers have collapsed!!!!" Instinctively, I said a prayer. I don't know what I was imagining was going on in the outside world, but I just knew things would never be the same. And that's where I was- in an old diner dressed as a clown from the 80's, sitting next to seven other (already terrified about the first days of school) freshmen. As long as I live, I will never forget it... I don't think anyone will...

during this time when the attack happen from the terrorism I was asleep when the plane crash came along and hit us.
the momment I woke up, I heard my mom was watching television and I heard people screaming and building falling down from the air. At first I thought that it was a movie, until my mom said that the united states was being attacked from terrorism. I think that the united states should be ready at all time.

I was at school, in Social Studies class. My teacher had the T.V. on, and we were watching it, not really knowing what had happened.This was a short time after the towers had collapsed.We saw the Pentagon, and the crying started up.It was at that time,I didn't really feel safe, anymore.
