On September 11th last year, I was sitting in Hermitage High School and from my geometry and history class we watched the coverage on the TV in the class room. I remember hugging my best friend and crying because I was so afraid. I knew people who had families that worked in the Trade Centers and in the Pentagon and my heart went out to those who felt more fear than I did about what they would find out later in the day.

I was being annoyed that the phone won't stop ringing. By 10am I woke up just in time to see John Edward. I turned on the TV and proceeded to the bedroom. I thought My gosh these contacts are really dirty, because the TV sure looks hazy. I went for a baby bottle and sat with my daughter on the bed. All I saw was Manhattan skyline and honestly I thought, why is it so foggy. Then the scrolling headlines started, and my tears started to fall.
My husband called and all I asked What HAPPENED!???? Then I couldn't stop thinking about my best friend, Roxy. She lives in Queens. I tried to call lines were busy, but I insisted and it connected me. She was ok, her husband John (who works in Mt.Sinai hospital) was stuck in Manhattan due to the shut down of the MTA. The most important part was that they were ok. I didn't sleep for 5 days. I couldn't eat either. I lost 15 lbs in 1 week. I was thinking what's coming next. Is this it? I was going out of my mind. Until my husband forbid me to watch, listen or even checked the news.
A year has passed, I reflect on today. I can't help feeling that a part of everyone died that day as well. I personally didn't know anyone on the flights, WTC 1 & 2, or the Pentagon, we are all connected. Not because some of us are white, black, yellow, brown, or red, BUT we are all HUMANS!

For the Faithfully Departed who became Angels, I will never forget!

I was in my social studies class learning about the war. Our coach came in our room and told us about it. i did not know what he was talking about. When I got home that night i saw the news. They played it over and over.
My grand pa told me what the world trade center was, but I knew where it was.
The pentagon was hit I think I was in social studies class. My mom told me the other schools let there parents take them home.
I felt mad about it. I hope who ever is resposable we'll be caught and faces the electric chair or be gased to death. I hope this tragic thing will not happen agian. Today is the anniversy of this tragic day. I hope this will not be forgoten. The smoke was coming down the streets like big water tearing down buildings. Many people died for NO REASON AT ALL!
