On the 11th I was in my room getting ready for school when my 12 year old brother came into see me almost crying. He said that on the raido he had heard that a building in New York was hit by a plane. I just comforted him and thought nothing of it. Then my father called from work and told me to turn on the news and wake up my mom. On my way down to the bus stop my mom said that if anything happened in San Francisco she would come to school to get my brother, sister, and I. In all of my classes I watched the news and found out about EVERTHING that happened. I could not belive it. After school I was glued to the t.v.. Everyone I knew, Including me, had a blank stare for at least a week after what happened.

I remeber waking up on September 11th, it was like any other morning for me. I got ready and left for schoool. It was early about 7 o'clock when I left, so I hadn't heard of anything happening or going wrong in our world. The first person I saw was my friend, Freyja, she looked a little disturbed. She walked over to me and and said "A plan hit the Trade Center." I had never heard of the twin towers before and didn't fully understand the effect that it would have on America. I had no clue how many lives were going to be taken due to some foolish terriost, who had no clue who they were messing with. This is a day that I will never forget. I can still remember everything that was said that day, all the word that came out of my teachers mouths(and for me thats amazing). For every single person who was effected by this horrible event, please know that even today, many monthes later, there are thosands of people praying for you and your family and for all those who lost their lives in the attack.

I remember on Sept 11, 2001 hearing on the radio about the attacks while waiting for my bus. As it was about 2 stops away the radio took a call from someone who sounded very upset. They said that the WTC was hit by an aitplane. I had no idea what was going on and when I got to school rumors were flying around everywhere, when I got into first period my teacher(who I would consider anti-American) told us that nothing had happened and that we shouldn't talk about it and if we do then we get detention, everyone listened in fear of her rath(that was the longest period of the day for me). I soon went to my second period class and walked into the gym and saw Ney York covered in smoke, it was like a movie, a very bad movie. I was in awe and terror, and confused. I will never forget the first thing I saw on that day not the planes, not the pentagon, but the smoke and the damage caused. I can't imagine loosing a loved one in that, I hate everyone who was apart of this attack on inocent people and I hope that they die a very slow painful death just like they caused over 3000 INOCENT people. To anyone who is suporting the attacks, I would like to see them say that to some of those firemen's faces who lost there best friends, their brothers. I would also like them to know that I hate them more then I hate anything else in the world, and my hate will only grow for them so they better hope that I never become responsible for attacks on them in the name of out country cause I will make sure they get the shit kicked out of them for what they did, just like the army and navy and airforce and our country is doing. Im proud of the way everyone pulls together in a time like this, it makes me feel safe and just good about everyone around me, all us Americans, we have a bond stronger than anyother country or group, including terrorists. Thats why we WILL win this war and avenge the victims and family.

God Bless America, and God help anyone who attacks us

The morning of September 11 was like any other morning for me. I got up and was getting ready for school. I rarely watch t.v. in the morning so I didn't know what was going on. On the bus they were talking about it, but I paid no attention to it. At school, all I heard about was what had happened in New York. We listened to the radio all day long but I didn't see the actual footage until 6th period that day. When I finally saw the footage I started to cry. I couldn't believe what I saw. I thought to my self "how could ANYONE be so cruel?" I guess I am still naive when it comes to thinking that anyone can be that mean. To this day, over six months ago, I still have yet to grasp the reality that this happened. Looking back at videos of that day today, it all seems like some special effect from a blockbuster hit. I'm not sure what I want to do in my life but, I do know that whoever did this deserves what they get. I know that in my heart justice will be served and we will always be united. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can take away our freedom. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
