I think that it was dreadful to hear about the planes and the two towers. Just imagine that was you knowing or not knowing you are about to die after or before your holiday or even at work it sounds so awful.It just goes to show how some people are just so self sentered and monters. I mean how would you be able to kill hundred of people and not be able to feel sorry or have any sympathy for any other.Just imagine how others must feel. All my hopes and wishes are with the families and friends of these victims. Also good look to them in the future and to stick by your friends and family.I feel deeply sorry for those people younger or my age and even older not to have a mum or dad i don't know how they feel but i couldn't even imagine.

It was around 6 or 7am Pacific Standard Time, when my alarm clock went off and the radio came on. The two annoucers were talking about how was has happened is terrible and how this was going to change everything, this was very odd because the station only plays music. So not knowing what they were talking about i automatically turned on CNN and there were the 2 towers on fire.

I couldnt believe my eyes, i gasped and called my mom to come see and she couldnt believe it. After saying oh my god, oh my god many times i continued to watch, i had up to then only seen pictures of the towers, when they played the video of the actual second plane hitting the second tour, my eyes and mouth were as wide as possible! i burst out crying, i couldnt believe that that was caught on video, just to know that those were the last minutes of those passengers lives... its unbelieveable.

i went to work and since all planes were being diverted into Canada, all morning we saw planes heading towards our airports and then all of a sudden.... there was nothing in the air. when your used to seeing a dozen planes in the sky at once to seeing none is an eery almost unatural feeling. The whole day seemed that way.

I was in the hallway when someone said that the WTC had been bombed. Later, in algebra class, Mr. Beaushene said he had been watching the news and was going to clear up the rumors. He said that two planes had flown into the Twin Towers in New York, and that both towers had fallen. The next thing he told us was that we were still having the quiz that day. We were all completely shocked and many people wanted to leave or go to the nurse. At the end of the day, Dr. O'Malley came on the intercom and said that we would have school the next day, and everything would go on as usual, except after school activities.

I was at work. I had just gotten off and went to wait for my friend to go on break. I was flipping through the channels and at first when I saw it I changed the channel because I didn't fully understand what I was seeing. Then I went back and few seconds later the second one hit. I still had no idea what was going on. The place started filling up because others in the plant were hearing rumors, and so they came to the TV to confirm them. Next we hear about the Pentagon. Then my friend came in a he had no idea what was happening, and as I was telling him I still couldn't believe it myself. I kept thinking they were just going to get everyone out and that we wouldn't lose so many people, then the towers collapsed and there was no going back. I thought WW3 must have started. I really thought we were going to be in an all out war. Today watching the memorials and seeing the footage, it still hurts as much as it did that day.

It had been a normal day at school but as we boarded the bus an eery silence set in as we all strained to listen to the news on the radio. It didn't really sink in at first but as soon as I set foot in the house and watched the news for hours and hours and saw all the footage of the devestation it became all too real. The pain got worse every day as more details were released and the death toll rose. But its worst now, exactly one year on, sure we try to get on with life but every time the pictures flash up on the television your reminded of the horific events of 9-11. Living in England theres 1000's of miles between us and America but not even the hugest distance can stop us feeling the pain and loss.
