I remember the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers like it was yesterday. My first block teacher Mr.Owens came in the room and told the class about it. I was so shock that I couldn't do my work.I wondered and wondered about how many people was killed and how many people lost their love ones. Then I kept saying to myself that I hope that the terrorist won't want to come to my country and do the same thing to us.But some people thought that it was a laughing matter but I took it serious because it might just happen to our country to. Well September 11 will be remembered for centuries.

On september 11,2001 I was in my
Language Arts class. I remember when we
had to stand up and say the pledge of allegiance after Mrs.Cooper finished
telling us what happened. I really didn't understand what was going on so it didn't have much affect on me then. It didn't sink in until I got home because it was on every news station on T.V. I remember for about a week after that day I was scared that someone was going to do something horrible to Virginia. I felt terrible for all the people in New York because so many people lost their lives that day. I still feel bad because what happened was so sad. I will remember the date September 11,2001 for the rest of my life.

It was about 9:00 am. I was in my first block class and the teacher was like the pentgon got attack and I was like the pentgon got attack.
And I was like I hope they wouldn't come to where we are at and I was like o no when I heard that. Everybody was scared and I was scared too. When I heard that, but I was about to cry. Then I went to my next block class my math teacher look like she was about to cry, when she heard about the attack. I said was she okay she said''yes, but ever since 9/11/01 everyone was saying God Bless America. But it was said since then that's what it was. but I hope they don't come to where I'm at.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

I was sat at home having just returned from the hospital with my son who was 5 weeks old, he had been for physiotherapy. My Aunt called and told me to switch the TV on that terrorists were attacking New York, I saw the recording of the first plane striking and then watched in horror holding my son whilst the second plane hit. I called my Auntie back but she was on the phone calling New York which she continued to do for hours until we heard that the family we have in New York were safe.We were one of the lucky families our 2 family members were safe but they have lost dozens of friends and colleagues. Not one member of our family have not lost someone they care for in this atrocity. Living near London and with family in Ireland we are used to living with terrorism the fear you feel in your stomach when you watch the news, but there are no words to describe the feelings I had on that day or how I feel today watching the memorial services but I do know this I will never forget and I will make sure that my children never forget.
President Bush is right I support him in his war on terror every step of the way and us Brits do stand shoulder to shoulder with the US. God Bless America and all those who have suffered the devastating effect of Sept 11th, my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
