I am from Australia so I didn't find out about the attacks until the next morning. I then went to school and everyone was talking about it. One of my classmates had a radio and heaps of kids were listening. After school I went home and spent the entire afternoon watching the TV, and seeing footage and interviews and stuff.

September 11th 2002.

On this day we remember the Hero’s and the Victims of 9-11-2001.
We remember the day that World suffered the worse crime imaginable.
We remember seeing Aircraft crashing into the Buildings and the other one in the ground in Michigan. On this day we lost Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Mothers, Fathers, Daughters, and Sons. We lost Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Brothers and Sisters. We lost In-laws, Neighbors and Friends. We lost Husbands and Wives, Fiancé’s, Boyfriend’s, and Girlfriends. We lost Police, Firemen and Women, Port Authorities, and Paramedics. We lost Military life as well as other Rescue workers.

This day we all felt the pain and sorrow that can not be described. We all remember seeing and hearing of the tragedy. We will not forget the horrifying images of the Planes crashing into the buildings. We will not forget seeing people trying to jump to safety. We will not forget the horrible images of human remains flying in the air and scattered on the ground. We will not forget the images of brave Rescue workers rushing in to save people, putting aside their own safety to help others. We will not forget the people them selves helping each other to safety as well. We will not forget hearing the calls of People aboard the flights and the People sacrificing their own Lives for others to stop Evil acts of terrorism so that others would be safe.

This day made people forget about their differences to stop and help try to rescue the Victims. We saw Men and Women of different Race, Creed and Nationalities all working as one to help. We saw unity of people all trying to do what they could to help working long hours and volunteering not wanting to stop till all could be rescued. We saw people standing in line at the Red Crosses donating Blood. We saw people bringing Food and Drinks to the Rescuers. We saw people giving money to help and people running out to buy Flags to show their support.

We saw Firefighters and Police Officers standing on Street Corners taking collections to help the Victims and Families of the Victims. We saw Celebrities coming together to pay tribute to the Heroes and Victims. We saw a Nation and World Wide support to stop the Terrorist. We saw other Countries pull together that had their difference to stop the people responsible for the act of cowardism attacks.

On this day we Remember standing as one and not backing down to the people who have tried to destroy our way of life. While they have impacted us they also have made us change our way of life. How ever they have not succeeded in making us back down.

To the Families of Victims and Heroes we will not forget. We will not forget seeing people holding up signs and pictures of their loved ones trying to search and hope for their safe return. We will not forget seeing the children crying as well trying to understand why. We remember seeing the President having to stop his visit with a School to be with Children and to promote education and reading. Then having the tears appear as he had to tell the children I have to go because we have been attacked.

We will not forget seeing and hearing of Military Planes ordered to shoot down any further threatening Aircraft if so needed to protect others. We will not forget hearing that all Aircraft except that of Military or Rescue to be grounded until they were given permission to resume.

We will not forget the reports of the Media many who were also in tears and also seeming to be helpless but wanting to keep reporting of news of Rescues.

We will not forget the loved ones in the Service being sent in to take out the terrorist and to stop any further acts that they may take.

I was at home in Metropolis, IL in bed sleeping and then at about 11:00 am i got up to get ready to go to work at a nursing home that i still currently work at. I didn't know anything about the WTC yet. That is until i got to work and heard it on the radios and televisions in our break room and the residents rooms. Everyone at work was talking about it. At first it didn't hit me how bad it really was. When i learned that terrorists had flew planes into the towers, it really scared me and i couldn't believe what i was hearing. Then later that evening I came home from work and my husband and I talked about it and watched it on television. All we could do was shake our heads in disbelief and shock at what we saw on tv. We give our deepest sympathies to the victims families and the survivors of 9/11. May God comfort and guide you through your grief.We are proud of and thank all the heroes that were there that day. God Bless America!

I can't recall specific times. But I can recall the motions I went through that day. I was in bed asleep. My friend mark called me and told me to turn on the news. It was then that I felt my heart break. I watched the T.V. for only a few minutes and went outside. It was silent. No birds were chirping, no sounds were coming from anywhere. Then the second tower was attacked. I stayed on the phone for a little while longer. When I got off the phone I called my mom right away and just cried. This is horrible. And to this day I am still heartbroken.

GOD BLESS THE U.S.A!!!!

RIP- To all those fallen heros... To everyone that was lost that day...
