i hadn't even heard of the world trade center until september 11 2001. i was in algebra class and heard my teachers talking in a worried voice in the hallway. my teacher came in with a really distressed face and i whispered to my best friend, "something is very wrong." i looked outside to see if there might be some weather alert, but all i saw was a beautiful blue sky and a bright shining sun. we turned on the tv in our classroom to see the two buildings on fire. we were listening to a lady reaccount the past events in the last few momments when she started screaming, "Oh my Gosh OH MY GOSH! its coming down." the camera dropped and it was enveloped in a cloud of gray dust. you could hear people screaming everywhere. you could tell whoever was holding the camera was running for their life. we all thought the world was coming to an end. to top things off that afternoon there was a sonic boom, but before the news station told us that it was a sonic boom we that that the Wright-Patt Air Force Base was being bombed. it was really to F-16's breaking the sound barrier while escorting Air Force 1. The images i saw and the thought of all those people who lost their lives while be permanatly ingraved in my mind forever.

On September 11, I went to school just the same as any other day. During my second block, my principle came over the PA and said that something terrible has just happened and to turn on our TVs to CNN. I wasn't thinking when I saw the plane crash into the first tower. I just thought "Oh, this isnt anything too important. It's just an old tape of something" Then, the second plane crashed, and then I realized how serious it really was. I was so scared for eveyone I knew. My cousin is in the Air Force, so I was terrified that he would have to go overseas or that somebody would bomb his base. Now a year later, I'm still really scared that something else will happen. I heard that the American Military bases over in Germany might get bombed tomorrow, and I almost cried. I don't understand why anybody would want to put a whole country through all of this pain and suffering. And I dont see why our President would want to go and do the same exact thing to Iraq. If we go and bomb their country, it'll only make things worse. Tomorrow in school, everone is wearing red, white, and blue in memory of all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

Tomorrow is Sept. 11th my 13th birthday. I remember how now a year ago I felt that day waking up and Thinking "wow it fells great to be 12!" I went into my living room only to be faced with a horrible fact; terrorists were attacking America. Thoughts raced though my mind," Are they coming near us?,"Are we safe",Was any one Killed?". For a moment I just stood there stunned that there was such evil in the world.
Although no one in my family was hurt by that evil my heart and my prayers go out to those that were.

I was in school. It was second period, at 10 am in Brimfield, IL. And the teacher had the TV on and they were showing it. I didn't know what the Trade Centers was or the Pentagon. I was in the 9th grade, a freshman in high school. Someone told me what they were, but I still didn't see how serious it was. And the thing was that in 1st period we were decorating the front of our note taking books, and I wrote on mine "I love (heart) NY!". That was before I knew it even happened. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

My day was going normally on september 11th. i was in the 8th grade. I got up, went to school and it happened just as my 1st class was letting out, but I had no idea of the attacks, I actually went through 1 other class before I found out, in my 3rd hour Social Studies class. I didn't believe it at first because the TV was on right when I walked into the room and I sat down at my desk like i normally would. I felt confused. All the teachers had the news on during the day so all we did was watch the news except for our science teacher, she had the TV off all day and went on teahcing the lesson. I was wearing my favorite sweat shirt and I didnt take it off all day. It made me feel more secure and comfortable. I remember walking home from the bus stop listening to loud Blink-182 music because I was kind of angry. i didn't cry a year ago but this past week I've been thinking about it and remembering it before I go to sleep and I cried myself asleep because I was looking at the Time magazine that came out that day and all the stuff on the news. I will always remember that day and where i was. That was the first i've actually been to school.I was homeschooled until that year and we just went to NY in may and went to the top of the trade towers. But if I was still homeschooled we would have gone in september around the same time. So if I didnt go to school last year I might have been in that area when it happened.
I (heart) NY!!
