On September 11 I was sitting in history class with all of the students eyes glued to the televsion. I was watching the tv for 50 mins. threw out the whole day all we heard was anouncments from the princple on what we were to do. the whole day went down in history. To me this day was a major tragdy to this country, wether it is to any other country or not it dosnt matter becuase it does to the US. All threw out the year in the morning before school starts we get to stand and salute our flag and country. From Sept 11, 01 till now i have never thought that this countrey could come alive we have gathered all together friends or not friends. The whole US has become the most loved place to be in the world and i am damn prode of it. I know for a fact that this country will never forget what happend to us on Sept 11 2001. Now at every event Football Basebal concerts anything all the people sitting there at the games chant U.S.A that is all this country does now it just amazes me on how well these people have come to love our country. God bless America

I was on my way to school. As soon as I arrived, I noticed that the television in the Commons Area was on. I thought that was odd, and asked the people who were watching the television "What are you watching?" They replied by saying something about a plane hitting a building. I didn't understand what they were saying, so I went to my math teacher's room to watch his television. When I got to the room, I noticed that there were two students already watching it. I went over to the television and what I saw on the screen was unbelievable. I just stood there facing the television for the next 15 minutes. I didn't know what to say or do. I was in shock; I felt numb. I spent the rest of the day glued to the television screen. I truly thought that it was the end. I thought life as we knew it was surely over. I wanted it to all be a dream.

I live in the Netherlands on the other site of the world...I was online, talking to a friend who I only know from a chat who lives in NYC. Inmediattely after the first plane flew in to the North-tower I turned on CNN....I first thought it might be an accident. We had a likewise accident here when a plane crashed in to a high appartment building.

I turned on CNN and than I saw LIVE on tv that the other tower had been struck by a plane and thougth that this was WW3. I tried to contact my friend in NYC but Internet was frozen. I just hoped he was okay (he was and still is). Than I saw the tower crumble down and started to cry and called everyone I knew to tell what happened!

The whole thing made me sad in filled me with horror...what sick mind could do that! I slept very bad that night and several nights after that...thinking of all those people who died and where missing and who was gonna be the next target.

I wish everyone a lot of strenght ang currage.Love, Christel

On 9-11-01 I was in my truck on my way to make a freight pick-up in Michigan City, In. I had a friend riding with me. At the first news report came over the radio, I woke him up from the sleeper. We were in shock. our first thoughts were of our families and friends in Chicago. We were extremely worried. (Thank God for cell phones.)

Our next thoughts were self-centered. My friend, Albert, was on his first trip in the truck with me. we both thought that Chicago would be the next target. We felt that God had put him and I in the truck that day to save us from tragedy. All we could do was pray. That was the most quiet ride ever. we were glued to both radios(stereo and c.b.).

I prayed more that day than i have ever prayed in my life.

Did I mention that Albert is a street gang member? It proves that all of America came together that day!!

When I first heard about the attacks I was sat at my desk at work. I overheard a conversation a couple of desks away and was suddenly concerned (Having many friends out in the States) The conversation was not very clear so I then proceeded to ask people about it and many hadn't any knowledge at all. Later that day, when I finally went on my lunch break I called my mum and asked if she knew anything about it and she was very emotional about it, knowing that I had many friends out there. She told me to turn on a television as soon as I got the chance, but this didnt happen until I finally got home at around 5.45. When I did switch on the box I was suddenly shocked. (I had first been told that it was a complete accident - not at all intentional) At just before 6pm UK time a second plane hit the building and me and my flatmates were watching in complete disbelief. It was such a horrible thing to witness - seeing people literally jumping out of the towers. One of the most horrific things I have ever witnessed in my life. The UK really are supporting you.. xxxxxxx My workplace has a 5 minute silence in memory. God bless america. xxxxx
