Last year, September 11, 2001, I was at school taking my SAT’s. My parents were really worried about my sister and I safety. Since they had so much concern, my dad had left work and came to pick up me n my sister white we were taking a huge test. When we got home my grandma had been there watching the news. We were just all in amazement when we all heard that the twin towers were gone. We were trying to call our relatives who live in New York, but the call would not go through. Then a few hours later we had heard that my auntie and grandpa could see the actual twin towers fall. Everyone in my family was safe. When my mom came home, she was so glad that we were all ok. At dinner we were all on the phone calling our loved ones. Also at dinner time, we prayed before we ate… for the victims who were in the tragedy.

Where was I on September eleventh???? I was at school, and everything didn’t come clear to me about what was going on until our school started being evacuated that day. I woke up that day with my mom yelling at me to wake up and see the news. It was 6:30 in the morning and everything to me was so confusing. A t school, nothing was happening except our teachers telling to us to be quiet and listen to the intercom.. Our school principal was saying information about what was happening and what was about to happen. I remember little kindergarteners crying and running away whenever a plane passed by. That day I went over my freinds house. I remember her parents crying and being worried about what was going on. Still I was confused about why the World Trade Center was crashing down .
Malls were closed, stores were closed, everything was closed. It was a very sad day I will never forget.

On September 11, 2001, I woke up and heard about the world trade center from the radio. Then I went to school. I went inside the classroom, and everyone was watching the news, eagerly waiting for more information. In class that day, we were supposed to be doing the SATs. A couple of hours later, parents had come to pick us up and go home.

My dad took me home, and I saw that my Mom was home along with my nephews. My sister was not able to come home because her boss informed her that they were not involved or in danger. I was very worried that day, but at least I was able to spend time with my family.

I live in Cardiff, Wales UK.
I was sitting in my German class about 2 hours after the attacks but i didn't know anything about them waiting for my teacher to come back with some photocopies of worksheets but when she came back she seemed quite confused and said "There's some aeroplanes crashed into a skyscraper and i think maybe a second i don't know if anything else has happened but i seriously doubt it was an accident" As soon i got into the car to go home, i swithched the radio and sure enough, the greatest terrorist attacks had taken place and I heard all the dreadful details.
It's a day I'll never forget and my prayers are with those who lost a loved one.

September 11th

Back at home, there I sat, at the TV watching as the pentagon and the twin towers were being attacked. I saw the after shots of both being attacked. My family sat there wondering whether they should go to work/school or stay home to let it sink in. instead of staying home, we all went out – to work and school. Later –maybe around 9-10 o’clock- my brother, 2 cousins, 2 aunts, and myself were given the okay to go home. As we were leaving other people were also leaving at the same time. I wasn’t surprised by all of the commotion in the school but what really scared me was all the commotion on the streets, it became a ghost town. There was barely anyone on the streets. There was no traffic and a majority of the stores were closed.

It was never the same since then, people are still afraid to leave their homes because of the attack on September 11th. The commercial build- the economy- had fallen dramatically and never recovered.
