Dear Viewers,
My name is Brielle DeMatteo and I live in Buckingham County, Virginia. I am in the seventh grade at Buckingham County Middle School.
On September 11, 2001, I was in my second period class, P.E., when the attacks occured. Suddenly, my coach came outside telling us that the World Trade Center had just been destroyed by a high-jacked plane.
At that moment I felt like time just froze. I asked my coach if he was joking and he wasn't. I thought we had a very much loved country and that no one would ever think of doing such a paralyzing thing to our nation. Then, I realized I was terribly wrong.
We watched the news all day long and then some. For the next couple of days, we mourned over the attacks and thought about all the people who helped with the attacks as well as those who died trying.
I would like to say thank you to all the families who's members fought and helped. I also sincerely apologize for those who's lives were taken and I hope they are in a much better place right now.
I know that we might have gotten lives taken as well as our nation's most important buildings, but our pride and love for another will not and cannot be destroyed.

"I can do all things in Christ who strenghtens me." Phillipians 4:13

Justice will prevail in the end. Take care and GOD bless!!!

I was here, in my office, i had a meeting. Suddently entered the room one of my colleagues. She was scared. She just said: "They have attacked the WTC. A plane. An air attack.". I remember (and i'm sure that a really big part of europe react as we do!!), we started laughing: "But what are u saying! Don't joke!!"
I took a look at internet. We didn't say nothing more. Silence. Just keeping saying: "Oh my God. Oh my God. It's not possible. It's a movie. It's not real. It's not possible."
I felt alone. Scared. I crayed. I went home and I stood all night in front of Tv, watching the impossible.
Today, for me, it's like one year before.
I lost just few months before 11/09/01 my man in a motor-crash. I know what something like this means. But in this way....it's no possible...
I gave a piece of my heart to NY. To Usa. To all the people. I'm with U!

I had taken my children to school when I heard about the first tower being hit, but I thought the radio announcer was playing a joke on everyone sice he always does stupid thinks on the air. So, I went home and took a nap. My sister-in-law woke me up, in hysterics and said "Oh My God! Have you seen the news?"
She and I spent the rest of the day watching the tv until our children returned home from school. When they got home we sat down at the table and discussed the days events and tried to help the kids understand what was going on.
All during the day she and I tried to get in touch with our spouses. Her husband is my brother and my husband works on an Army POST. When we finally got to speak to the two of them and knew they were safe our day was much easier to deal with.

God Bless

I had just driven to my mum's house. She was watching Sky News and all i could see was smoke. I was listening to the "breaking news" when I saw the 2nd plane fly into the tower.

I just didn't know what to say. I still don't. Part of me doesn't want to believe it and I don't think that it will sink in for a long time yet.

We observed the silence today and I nearly cried (at my desk at work!).

Goodnight to all the victims and prayers for their families.

I had just dropped my Jeep off for servicing when someone came into the garage annoucing a plane had struck one of the towers. Assuming it was a small plane we all headed into the office to take a look. After about 30 seconds of watching the news we saw the second plane hit live. Instantly everyone's jaws dropped and we all said in a soft low voice "terrorists".
The day only got worse from that point on but I will never forget the horror in watching the second plane hit that morning. My parents have always remembered where they were and what they were doing when they learned about the assassination of JFK Jr. and now as history moves forward I can feel their pain.
God Bless America!!! My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost a loved one on this tragic day.
