I'll never forget where I was on 9-11-01. I was at home in Kentucky. I had been doing laundry all morning and was about to take a break and watch Judge Judy. When I turned on the t.v. all I saw was news about the planes that hit the Twin Towers. I thought that it was just a freek accident. I couln't believe this was happening to us! I've seen this kind of stuff happen oversea's. But now we were the target. I mostly felt scared all day and numb. I didn't know what to do. I was thinking that this is the end of the world.
After I watched the news about an hour, I went to my moms house where we watched the tv together. As soon as my sisters came home from school, they said, "did you see what happened in New York?" I couldn't believe that the teachers let them see it on the t.v. but everyone has different views of that. We still talk about it all the time. We are beginning a scrapbook about 9-11. It's a good way to begin the healing process and it's lets my younger sisters find out more and learn why it happened.
That's where I was.

I remember where I was on September 11th 2001......I was sitting in science class, I remeber when I heard that the WTC had been hit by an airplane... I thought it was just an accident, but then another on hit.....Now I knew it was a terrorist attack! I was terrified!!! Even though I live many states away it felt like this was happening in my own town!!! Some of my classmates were in tears, some were filled with fear and others like me were just plain shocked! I remeber those who died everyday and I'll never foget this tragic event....May God Bless all who have have suffered this tragity

I had just bought and brought home my playstation 2, I was playing on it in the living room for ages, unaware of what was happening! Then my girlfreind phoned me from her work and told me to switch on the tv...I could not belive my eyes I remember asking her questions like How long has this been going on, how did you find out? Just stupid shock questions. The playstation was the first thing on my mind now it was far far the last! I watched the tv all day and night in amazment of this terrible event. Once I got of the phone to my girlfreind I called my Dad to tell him, he already new and was watching it aswell, Me and my girlfreind keeped intouch all day asking each other if the other new any more! Today 12months on to the day I feel touched by the two nations united grief and support for one another, I also feel very angry at those responable, very very angry and unforgiving.

I can remember the day as if it was yesterday. I was at work and one of my collegues broke the news to us, he had been reading the days news on the internet. At first I didn't believe him, I really couldn't believe what he was saying. Then we put the TV on and it was showing what was happening in the US live on the programme. No-one could believe what they were seeing it was truley unbelievable. I rang my boyfriend to see if he heard the terrible news he couldn't beleive it. All day I kept in touch with him it is times like this that make grateful of what you have got. At the time I was overcome with the days events I could not take into acount the shear amount of distruction that had happened in New York City. A year later my thoughts are with the familys and friends of those who were injured and those who lost their lives. I hope that America can prevail over evil and terrorism.
