It is very painful for me to remember that terrible day, even now What matters to me it that it even happened at all.Can it really be true? It took awhile before I realized the horror of it all. Where I was is not important; it matters not. What does matter to me the image of the terrible lost of innocence and beauty gone to all of us forever. I knew all the WTC towers so well, I walked though those buildings so many times when I was on the job. My sister worked in one of the towers years ago. I can close my eyes and still see the images of the beautiful towers against the blue sky. The stores; and where they were and their names; and the people-- yes, the people!!! We lost something that day, something innocent and beautiful, and I shall never forget it.

I heard about the attack when I was in scouts, and when I got back home I kept watching the re-runs of the planes flying right to the world trade center. It looked like a movie, I still don't beleive it, it's just too big, to much for me to accept.
Since I live in Israel, when terror attacks and suicide bombers kill people every day, I'm kind of used to it (that's not a good thing to say/hear, especily from a 13-year-old girl...).
As I already said, it all looks like a movie, it's too hard to accept, for me anyway.

Before such an event happened i really never thought about how precious life is, I have never been a deeply religios person, but as i watched at home when the toweres fell my heart ache, husbands, wifes, children, grandchildren, generations of famniles lost. Yet I beleive to all those who are berived that your loved ones are never truely never dead because they remain in your memoreies, they now live in you. When you feel sad or angry they are standing with you, holding your hand, they will always be standing with you, they are not angry at how they left our world, they are simply at one with themselfs now, with God. They say, 'now as I lay you down to sleep, I pray the lord your soul to keep, and if I die before you wake, I pray the Lord your soul to take.'

The day my world changed I was at work on the 41st floor on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. Our office had a clear, unobstructed view of the WTC. When the first plane hit, everyone thought it was a freak accident but then when the second plane hit, we realized the truth - that we were under attack. The only thing entering our minds were how many people were either killed or hurt for no reason and if we would make it home OK. My thoughts and prayers are with the families and survivors. Thankfully, no one in my office knew anyone directly affected but something in all of us died that day. I have tried to come to terms with what happened and hold onto the fact that people from all walks of life, religions and creed have come together in love, not hate. I pray that there is a time that we all can just live in love, peace and harmony and be able to believe with impunity what we want. I do believe that G-d is manifested in every one of us no matter what race, religion or creed we are and that a person who truly acts in G-d's name would only show love and tolerance for all. G-d in any religion is a G-d of love, not hate.

I was in the science lab at the time doing a Biology assignment when the teacher came in and told us what had happened the whole class went silent we didn't believe what had happened we were amazed at what had happened as well. When I went home i stayed glued to the t.v set the whole night.
