I was sleeping peacefully in bed, not long before I was supposed to wake up for class at university. I remember the phone ringing and wondering what on earth anyone would want at 7:45am. I felt my boyfriend answer the phone, get out of bed, and leave the room and I tried to fall asleep. Five minutes later he woke me up and said "we're under attack." I was feeling so confused. Attack? Who? Where? How? And even as the questions raced through my mind I ran upstairs just after the second tower had been hit. I was glued to the TV until just after the first tower fell to the ground. I honestly thought I was going to throw up. I had to leave the suffocating house and the mesmerising TV. So I drove and cried and listened to the National Public Radio station as they said the second tower fell. I can never remember feeling so lost and helpless and so hurt.

I heard my alarm go off at 6:43a.m with reports of a plane hitting the Pentagon.I raced downstairs, turned on the "Today Show" and then was "glued" to the chair all day watching the horror of it all. It was surreal and something never to be forgotten. I remember the day JFK was shot, John Lennon was shot and exactly where and what I was doing. This will always be a memory for me, one that will never leave my mind or heart. God bless America and also the country allies for the help in trying to bring world peace.

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 live in England so when i woke up that day it was a normal day and my main worries where i've got to do my french homework. The day went fine. I sat in french with my homework and was talking to my friend, Jonny about him going on holiday next week to .. New York (which i think is a little strange) at 2pm (when it happened in UK time). I had my phone with me that day and my dad always texts me with any news on anything and just this one day i hadn't checked my phone and had gone to a maths revision class. There was nothing said, it was 3.25 and it had all happened at 2pm our time and no one knew anything at school. Then i met with my sister to walk home and she was talking to my dad on the phone saying that there had been bombings and that the radio was only given bulletins and he hadn't seen any pictures because he was at work. This may sound awful but i didn't know when he told me what the twin towers where. But when i got home i turned on the television and every single channel had the news and the first image i saw was New York covered in smoke. I dont remember the whole evening just me and my whole family watching television in disbelief. I didn't do any homework that night, no one did and no teacher the next day asked for it in, it wasn't important. Through the next couple of weeks it made me proud to be an english person because i'd seen a different side to every person i knew and i will never forget the way i felt that day.

I was at home when I heard the news about 9/11.My grandpa turned the TV on and there it was on every channel.The World Center in flames and the Pentagon was preetee f***ed up too! It didn't really sink in at first,just to shocked by the whole thing I guess.When I got to school it started to sink in,everybody was talking about it.Some of my friends were freaking out thinking about what if it happens here?!! Some people joked but I found nothing funny about it,I thought it was sad that many of these lives were lost.To think they were just doing their normal routine of work and never even saw it coming. If they find Osama and his groupies I hope they make him suffer and I got some good ideas just how to make that bastard suffer...GOD BLESS AMERICA!
