On September 11, 2001 I was in my homeroom class, which was Mr. Owens. The first time i heard about the attacks was in that class. Coach rushed in and started to yell what was going on to Mr. Owens. He had come in unexpectedly, so we were all like, "what?", so he had to repeat it all over again. When it finally sunk in what was happening, my first thought was that i hope they don't come to Virginia. But after a few minutes I began to think more about the ones who lost their loved ones and about the ones who lost their own lives. So god bless America and the families of those killed on September 11.

When the attacks occured, I was in the 10th grade. I was getting ready to leave my first class, Computer App, when the first plane hit the WTC. I was in a state of shock. Most teachers and students kept their eyes glued to the TV for rest of the school day.

With my hectic life of being a student (pre-med no less), wife (or a 3rd year law school student), mother(or a rambunctious 2 yr old!), and part-time worker, I rarely recall the events of last week!. . . But it's amazing how you can remember EXACTLY where you were and what you were doing when something big happens.
I was in my Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy course at Benedictine College in Atchison, KS. We were doing an observatory lab on the integument and I was examining a porcupine quill under the microscope when one of my classmates came in and told the professor that the World Trade center had been attacked and the pentagon was hit and one more plane was missing. Some of the students nervously laughed and when I realized what she'd just said I thought to myself "oh my God, we're under attack. . .I need to get to my daughter and find out where my husband is." Our professor left the room to watch the television and we were all expected to sit there and finish our work. Many of the students joked about it b/c no one really understood what was going on. I, on the other hand, after being to NYC several times in the past year and had an idea of exactly how many people would be down in that area on a weekday morning became sick to my stomach, gathered my things, and left. I picked up my daughter from daycare, called my husband (who was on his way home too), and proceeded to spend the remainder of the day watching the television and waiting for some answers like everyone else in the country that day. Wanting to help, but feeling so helpless. Hurting for all those innocent people, yet feeling thankful that my family was okay.
(It turns out that my aunt that lives in Manhattan was scheduled to give a tour of the World Trade Center that morning but since my uncle had the day off she decided to call in sick and sleep in. They too were unaware of what was happening only miles south of them and were finally informed when they gave in to the phone - that had been ringing for hours as concerned friends and family were worried about their well-being.)

I was out side in P.E. class we were playing basketball.When my P.E. teacher came out side to tell us the the trade center was hit by a plane I could care less because I did not know about it and how much the trade center meant to some people.But now I know that the world trade center was an important place.And how many people died in it. I know that this was very hard for some people.So I do care because I now know about it.

When the attack on America happened I was in P.E. class with Mr. Gowin and he told the class about what happened.I was sad because what if we had did that to them they would feel the same way we do. Then when I got home my mother told me that the Pentigon had been hit too. It made me even sader then I was before because my mom told me that one of her friend's husband was in the Pentigon.My
feelings now are better because they
haven't done anything else and I'm glad.
