I was sitting in my business computers class and someone knocked on the door. They weren't supposed to tell the students what had happened. At first, before anyone else in class knew anything was wrong at all, my friend erika & I heard the two teachers speaking in the hallway about no one being able to enter or leave NYC & something about the pentagon. We couldn't figure it all out though. I'm sorry we begged them to tell us. I would have rather not known.

After school, my friend Joe came to pick everyone up and we headed over to my house to see everything on television for the first time. the radio in the car was enough to keep the 8 of us piled into one vehicle silenced the entire ride.. and the images on my television were nothing short of heartbreaking.

I was on my way to school when America was attacked. I couldn't stop thinking "This is gonna be a bad day". Of course, I just thought it was because I had a test or something, but it turned out to be so much worse. Plus the test.

what happened to this country on september eleventh is unspeakable. the tragedy and suffering alone is to much to comprehend, especially to someone so far away. this event has made us all more aware of the world as a whole, by tearing our eyes open. but we as a nation shouldn't be screaming for revenge and blood. why kill more people so they can also feel the fear and pain we do now? at this time we need to unite and prevent future attacks by awareness and peace, not fear instilled in the hearts of "non-americans." wake-up america!

I'm a 911 dispatcher, so i had just gotten home from my midnight shift. I was talking to one of my friends on the phone when my Dad knocked on my door saying that a plane had just hit the World Trade Center..I quickly turned on the TV only to see in horror the 2nd plane hit. I couldn't believe what i saw...Total disbelief. How could something so horrible be happening before my eyes..I was glued to the TV like every other American that day...
We've lost so many....It's hard for me to comprehend the tragedy that has occured in this country...I pray for the families of the victims, and to the fallen heros...GOD BLESS AMERICA

I was at school in Michigan so i didn't get to actually see any of it until later. During the break one of our teachers told us and we thought it was a joke. Little did we know that this would be the day that changed most of our lives. This was a disaster that touched everyone adn much like my parents who remember when Kennedy was assassinated and the way I remember the Assassination of Rabin I will never forget this.
