When I heard the news I had just arrived at work, I did not want to believe it and I prayed that all those at the WTC would be able to escape unharmed. The entire day was so emotional and sad. We listened to the radio and watched the news on tv late into the night. My family and I will always mourn for those lost at the WTC, the Pentagon and Flight 93. My husband and I are native New Yorkers, we would drive into NY and feel great PRIDE and LOVE for the beautiful skyline of the WTC and the Statue of Liberty. Now I know when we return to visit with our children it will really hit us hard. This has hurt to the core of our being. I do not think we (USA) will ever be the same.

On september 11th 2001 I was having lunch with friends. In the UK it was just after 2pm. A friend called and said in a greif stricken voice saying something about America but the reception was bad and I could not understand what he has said. We turned on a radio and it became clear that something devistating had happened. We drove to a friends house who had a tv and watched in horror as the reality of what had happened sank in, I remember the day so well, that day will be with me as long as i live. May God bless us and have mercy on us all.

I live in Canada, but my son was born in Michigan on September 11th, 1999. I sat here in horror watching CNN as the second plane hit while he was opening his presents.

May God bring a more peaceful birthday and peace to all of us this year.

In the September 11th I was in my home, I openned TV and I saw an aeroplane in the WTC building. First, I did not realize what is the meaning of this, but then when I saw the analysts I understood that this is a really big thing!!! My friends were in scouts so I called them every 15 minutes to give them the newest information... I did the same with my fother who was in France, and he told me: "This is the begining of world war 3!!!"... It was strange for me because I live in Israel and we have terror attacks almost every-day so I didn't understand what is the "Big Deal". Now I know that it was a really meaningful ivent and it influence the all-world!!!
I wish America won't be naive, and won't give Saddam Husain a "CHANCE" because he has the responsability of 90% of the world terrorism!!! People, try to be careful when you go full places... And GOD BLESS AMERICA (And Israel!!!) :)
