When the Twin Towers and the Pentagon were hit last year I was in my 1st period English class but I heard about it in my 2nd period Choir class. I was only a Junior last year in High School and now I'm a Senior in High School and I still have trouble believing that this actually happened to our country again. I wasn't born when Pearl Harbor was attack but like they said then about the "sleeping giant being woke up". I guess you could say that they woke us up again. Please never forget about that horrible day in September because I know I won't ever forget.

i was in the middle of what my school calls snack. my friends mom walked in and was crying. my friend went up to her mom n asked her what was wrong. then my friend came back. at first we said is your mom okay and she just yeah...so then we got it out of her that the towers and pentagon were hit. we all started freaking. it was only about 6 of us who knew. the rest of the cafeteria were happy people smiling and laughing as we sat in silence. a few people came over and asked what was wrong. we only told about 2 of the people who asked. they joined us in grieving. then i thought my dads in sweden, hes going to be stuck there for a long time. and my stepsister lives in ny. then i started to cry..next thing we knew the revron, head, and all the other important ppl of our school got up and rang the bell in the cafeteria and let us all know what happened. it was the worst day of my life, and im sure many others.

I was 7 months pregnant and sleeping. My brother-in-law called us just after the first tower was hit. I thought a drunken amateur pilot did it. Then I saw the second plane hit. My stomach dropped. I just stood there is amazement. Not because we were being attacked, but why. My first question was why. I thought about the families and prayed that no one was inside. I watched and prayed and watched and prayed. Then I saw the second tower fall. That was the first time I sat down and really began to grasp the enormity of it all. When the Pentagon was hit, I thought of family in D.C. Turns out my cousin was passing the Pentagon and saw it get hit in his rearview mirror. That had to be one of the scariest days of my life. I never wondered why us, just why in that manner. Not that is should have happened at all, but I wish something could have been done to prevent it from ever happening.Then I turned the television off and prayed. I could not resist looking to see if people would survive, but I could not get upset being pregnant. I did not lose anyone that day, but in spirit I did. My heart goes out to everyone. I love you and your loved ones. Not to trivialize your love, but just know I pray as you pray, and love as you do (maybe not as much). I have read many of the victims stories and I thank all of you for sharing so that I may for a moment, know your people and for all my life remember them and love them too. May God keep you all.
