Well I was geting up for school. It seemed like a nice day, but when i got to school no one was playing on the school yard. I walked into my techer's room and notest that the tv was on. I looked and saw the north tower of the world trade centes fall. I stoud in the same spot for like 30 secent's. I asked my techer what had happend. she siad tow plane has hit the world trade senters. I couldent bilive it. I was going to go there in the summer becuse i wanted to see those towers.Rilly bad. i just couldent belive all of this stuff. Later I fownd stuff to make a flag. All of the people that die on 9/11/01 will be in my heart for ever.

I remember when we used to drive through new york and see the empire state building, GW bridge, and the twin towers. I remember the trip to the bronx zoo and to the statue of liberty. IDK much about new york, but i remember seeing all these things.

Where Was I when it happened? I was in school... 7th grade...i was 12 then it happened while I was in math class, but nobody told me until another peer came up to me before lunch and told me planes flew into the WTC. At that point I didn't know the twin towers we're the WTC. (i was ignorant... sorry) and then I didn't find out that they had collapsed until music. For the first month all I was interested in was seeing the planes hit the towers. But now that I've had a year to think about it (i'm in 8th grade now, 13) I feel that humans are indeed petty, fighting to prove who's wrong... who's the best... put fear into peoples hearts for no reason except the joy it causes when you do so, all this hatred. Lately I've been comparing the lives of humans to other species, and noticed that humans are the only ones that murder for the pleasure of killing, or because they just don't like someone.

Who cares who's more powerful.
Why is money so important. If it wasn't then I assure you crime wouldn't be as bad today.
Why do people care what difference in religion means. So people believe something different. How do we know who's right? What if we're all right in one way or another.

and why do innocent people have to be killed to prove a point. if they wanted a war why did they have to be COWARDS and attack the innocent bystanders who on september 11th thought they we're going through the normal routine.

What kind of world do we live in. I think the world is a pretty pathetic place to live in right now.

I know it took a year for me to think all these thoughts, but it needed time to sink in.

I got to school and I saw my teatcher sitting on a desk,crying a little, "Good morning Mrs.Amend" I said. She didn't answer.I looked and all I saw was planes and smoke.My friend had told me her uncle might be dead because he woked at the WTC. My other friend had two friends dided in the Pentagon.No one of my family died but I am verry sad for the people who lost loved ones. In Mexico ther was a attack where my aunt works. I was scared.Well we had two prayer servics at school. In class we had a thing called comunity circl, we had it all day. My friends brother is in the marriens and she and her cousin were crying verry hard. To all the people who died on September 11 you are on our hearts. :(

My husband & I slept late that morning so the towers were already down when we heard. We were both upset but tried to continue with our days. A dear friend of mine lost close friends that day, a husband & wife who both worked in one of the towers.
But through tragedy we gain strength.

I am more proud that I was born an American.

I find Canada is different now, more patriotic instead of apathetic.

I am more afraid whenever a jet flys over on a training mission.

I see many more Canadian flags flying than ever before (except on Canada Day) and people are not ashamed to show their feelings for our American neighbours as many also fly (or only fly) American flags.

It was impossible to buy an American flag right after 9/11, we had to go on a waiting list.

God Bless America

Our thoughts and prayers are (and have been for the past year) with the survivors, the victims and their families.
