I was on my way to school when I heard it come over the radio and by the time i got to school the second tower had been hit. We sat in American History and our teacher tells us to shut our books because this is american history happening right before our eyes and the whole rest of the day we watched the tv to see if anything else had happened. We had an assembly that afternoon to talk about it everyone was shocked and suprised even life here and south dakota changed that day.

I was at work...when I heard of the first crash I thought it was sad, but just an accident. Then the second, third, and forth came. I had to keep working but kept listening to the radio.
It was very hard to focus, but we can not continue to be victums by stopping our normal production. I thought it best not to discuss the events with my children. Some things are best not to focus on. Just keep on going and look ahead not behind.

I'd just come home from school and saw my Dad and the window cleaner staring at the the TV. I had to go to tennis immediatley for coahcing but I just sat there shocked for about an hour and then went to tennis, not realising the extent of everything until I returned home later. God bless the families of all those innocent people ad may there be peace to them all resting in the arms of God.

We all know what happened September 11 and I will like to express my feelings on this sad and never forgotten tragedy. On Tuesday September 11, 2001 it was a normal fun day for me. I was in my first period class when Mr. Atkins walks in my class saying how a plane crashed into the Pentagon and that 2 other planes hit the twin towers. At first I paid it no mind but then when I got home I here about it everywhere: on tv,the radio, and people talking about it. Then I hear that both twin towers has collaspe while people are still in there. I turn on the tv and there goes one tower and then the other. Now I'm sitting here thinking to myself how can somebody do something so cruel. Is is because they don't like America or is it because they want Justice or they did it to prove a point. For whatever reason they did it innocent lives went with them. Now as we stand here today we should be blessed that we have our parents with us today because many children are now growing up without either they mother father or both because they were either working that day or trying to save people that day. Now their children will now have to grow up knowing that they parents died for something that wasn't meant to happen.
