On Tuesday, September 11, 2001 I was waking up for school just like any other regular day when all of a sudden my mom turns on the television and tells me that we are being attacked! I don’t know what’s happening, since I am still am halfway asleep, and I panic. I don’t know what is happening until I look at the T.V. and see that the first tower of the WTC was crashed by a plane. At first I only thought it was an accident, until I see another plane all of a sudden crash into the second tower, then I know that we were being attacked, for real! I then hear that the Pentagon was also struck and I had no idea what to do, but go to school, even though I knew it wasn’t going to be the same ever again! Even though I still go to school, we watch the news and stay informed about what is going on, and pray to God for help and to keep everything together and not let anything get anymore out of control. Life will never be the same, because WE WILL NEVER FORGET!

I was in a superstore, when I saw the images of the smoke in Manhattan. I asked what was happened and they answered that WTC was collapsed. "OH, MY GOD! How many people died?" I thought. There are no words to say the pain, the fear and the wrath for what we were looking!
A prayer for all the victims.
WE NEVER FORGET!

I was travelling back from lunch in Edenbridge, Kent, England listening to the Simon Mayo show on Radio 5. He was describing the scene and stating that it was not yet clear what had happened, then the other plane hit the second tower and I, along with everyone else, probably realised that this was an organised attack.

My abiding memory will be trying to log onto various internet pages and finding many of them locked up, knowing that the whole world was watching the news and looking at the images of the planes crashing into the towers. Once on the web pages, the image that will stay with me forever is that of the people jumping to their deaths.

My thoughts and the thoughts of many others I know are with all the survivors of 9/11 and the families of those innocent people who lost their lives unneccessarily whilst just doing their jobs.

The site should be now made into a garden of rememberance with a memorial with all the names of the dead.

I am British and I live in York at the time i was sitting in my living room and had just finished watching neighbours and a news flash appeared on the screen and said that they were getting reports that a plane had crashed in to the WTC it was amazing to see, my friend came over and we were just glued to the TV for hours unable to comprehend what we were seeing second tower , pentagon , and Pensylvania it just got worse and worse as the afternoon went on, it started at 2.10 pm here.In the end I had to turn the TV off as it was just too much I was also very worried about the out come as my husband is in the Army and I thought there is bound to be some sort of millitary backlash.I cant belive its been 1 year already its my birhtday on sept 10 and every year I will be thanking god im alive and my family is all safe and well.The thing that upsets me the most is when you hear the messages from people in the towers on on the planes left on answering machines its just heart breaking.There is no doubt the world has changed forever a feeling violation and disgust for the people who did this, and it has certanly made me think twice about bringing children in to this sad sad world.
