I got to school and I saw my teatcher sitting on a desk,crying a little, "Good morning Mrs.Amend" I said. She didn't answer.I looked and all I saw was planes and smoke.My friend had told me her uncle might be dead because he woked at the WTC. My other friend had two friends dided in the Pentagon.No one of my family died but I am verry sad for the people who lost loved ones. In Mexico ther was a attack where my aunt works. I was scared.Well we had two prayer servics at school. In class we had a thing called comunity circl, we had it all day. My friends brother is in the marriens and she and her cousin were crying verry hard. To all the people who died on September 11 you are on our hearts. :(

I was sleeping, and my mom came in and said that a plane had crashed into the WTC...I didn't think much of it, but I turned on the radio and heard everything. I went downstairs and right as I set foot in the living room, I watched the TV, and the first tower fell. I was really scared and didn't want to go to school, but I did, and everyone just sat silent the whole day...I was in total shock and I remember we were supposed to take the Senior Picture that day so all the seniors were there early before the rest of the school and we sat in the parking lot listening to everyone's radios in their cars. Almost no one spoke. It was...unbelievable.

I am a law enforcement officer, on September 11th a fellow co-worker and I had made plans to have lunch that day. On the morning of September 11th when the news broke in Sacramento my co-worker called me on the phone and told me to turn on the television. I thought what I was seeing on the television was a war movie and that she was mistaken or perhaps I was on the wrong channel. After realizing what I was seeing was actually occurring in my country, I was in a state of shock. My first impulse was to gather up all members of my family and somehow protect them. As I calmed down I realized I was one of millions of people in the United States that did not know exactly what we should or should not do at that particular period of time.

My co-worker and I agreed that it would be a good idea for her and I to be together to help each other get through this tradegy. Spending that time with her helped me to not focus on me but helped me to think about how I could help others who may be in a worse situation than I was.

I worked several extra hours per week providing special security to areas identified in our jurisdiction as highly potential targets. Knowing that I was fulfilling my duties and responsibilities as a law enforcement officer helped me immensely, knowing I was helping others helped me to cope and stay focused during this difficult period our entire nation was experiencing.

September 11th, 1989 was when I was born. September 11th, 2001 was when it happened. I couldn't beleive my eyes. I was really excited for school because everyone promised they would sing me happy birthday the whole day through. I was getting ready for school when my aunt called. She told my mom to turn on the news. As I was getting ready I walked past the tv and saw it! I was amazed, it reminded me of the movie Independence Day. I was glued to the tv. I couldn't take my eyes off of it. It was so sad. and took me and my family by shock. I didn't realize the time but I was late for school so I was rushing to get ready and stopping every time I passed the tv just to see what else has happened. I went to school, hearing everybody talk about it. I over heard boys saying they would have to join the army(not quite sure what would happen and how bad it was) I got lucky. My friends still sung happy b-day to me the whole day. I was lucky enough to not be forgotten. I am looking forward to my b-day this year but I know it won't be the same!!!
