I was on my way to the U.S border from Canada on a cross Canada and the States motorcycle trip that i had planed for years.I stoped at a gas station and while i was paying i got a quick view of the guys t.v,It showed the first tower burning and i thought,hey,hes watching armagedon good movie,(if you watch the movie you will see the exact same thing,the tower on the right on fire while the left is not)so i continued on my way,,not knowing.close to the border of the U.S. I exchanged my money and all the ladies (tellers) were watching t.v.So i asked one of them whats going on and they said a plain hit one of the towers,,,but no one knew it was not a accident at the time.I thought how could that have happened?Then when i got to the border, all backed up,,i followed the canadian border untill i found a small border crossing(rainy river) that wasnt busy,I tried to cross and they pulled me in and stripped my luggage,my bike,me,and im thinking what the hell is this(cause i still did not know) and two half hours later im on my way and i said the heck with this so i headed for the first crossing back to canada cause somthing felt and looked wrong?.I turned off my c.d player and turned on my radio and thats when i found out what had happened,what looked weird was there were no planes in the sky!,thats why the border guards were on their toes.My heart sank.I am former canadian armed forces and ill fight for the States any time.MY HEART GOES OUT TO EVERY ONE hurt DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY THAT DAY.Alan jacksons song says it all best,faith hope and love are some good things he gave us.BIN LADDEN,YOUR A COWARD.

I was in the science lab at the time doing a Biolgy assignment.When the Physics teacher came in and told us what had happened...... We dropped everything and went to the library we didnt do anything at allthe rest of that day.When i went home i was glued to the t.v. for the rest of the nignt there isn't a day that doesn't go by and i don't think what happened.
My aunt worked in the WTC and she got out she worked on the 5th fllor of the south tower.THAT DAY IS A DAY THAT THE HOLE WORLD WON'T FORGET

My husband and I were on our honeymoon in Banff, Alberta. We had been without TV or radio for a week and a half, we had just checked into a nice cabin that had a TV the night of September 10th. In the morning my husband turned on the TV just as "breaking news" flashed onto the screen. We saw what had happened and were watching it when the second tower was hit, we were glued to the TV set through that tragic morning. Needless to say, we felt terrible and just wanted to get home, we packed up and left the next morning. It never felt so good to be back in America.

I was at work in a hospital the morning of Sept. 11th. A radio was on and suddenly the announcement said a plane had crashed into the WTC. Thinking is was a horrible aviation accident, we turned up the volume for more details. To our horror, we heard a second plane had crashed into the WTC, another into the pentagon and still another crash in Pennsylvania! We couldn't imagine how all of a sudden 4 planes were falling out of the sky! We had no idea what or how the morning's events would impact our lives/country in the days ahead. I will always remember where/what I was doing the day President Kennedy was killed, Challenger blew up, and events of Sept. 11th. I pray our political leaders can bring to justice dead/alive those who are responsible for the tragic loss of so many innocent people and the family/friends of those left behind. I am a proud American, God Bless us all!
