When the planes hit, I was asleep in bed. I woke up, and I'm not a morning person, so I was in a general state of confusion. I heard some murmers of it on the radio, and more when I got to school. I still didn't have a sense of what had happened. Then I went to my first class, the stage. We usually have the t.v. on in the background while we work. This day however, we didn't work. We sat, and watched. Only then, at about 8:30am PST, did I truly understand what had happened. The whole day t.v.s were on in classrooms. By the time 2 came around, I was sick of it. I don't think I could take more of it. It made me so sad. I just wanted to do something, I wished my teachers would have given me some busywork to do, to take my mind of the horrors...
Thats where I was.

I remember september 11th 2001 like it was yesterday. A day I will remember all my life.

I had just finished eating my lunch when the BBC news flash came on British TV, minutes after the first plane hit, and was glued to the TV for the rest of my lunch hour. I just couldn't beleive what I was seeing.

Immediately my heart went out to all those who were at that moment suffering, and those who were about to learn they had lost a loved one in what seemed to be a tragic accident. Little did we all know at that moment the horrors that were still to come.

When I returned to work, my collegues were all unaware of what was happening and didn't beleive what I was telling them until we turned on the radio.
Today, one year on, my heart goes out to all those who have lost loved ones in the tragedy and to all those who are living with memories of escaping from the towers themselves.

I'm currently hoping to join the police force here in the UK and I pray to God I never have to experience anything as horrific as what happened a year ago today.

I find it sickening that today the Pope prayed for forgiveness of those responsible for the attack. They should never be forgiven for the pain they have caused to so many innocent people. I've heard people say they should be left to live with what they have done, the pain they have caused, but I'm certain they will never show any remorse. No punishment on this earth will ever be adequate.

Let us never forget those who lost their lives in this tragic event, and continue to thank all those who gave their lives, time, love and effort in the weeks following September 11th 2001.

That morning I didnt' wake up knowing that this day would be put in history books or would change America as we know it the day before. We don't live in a country where fear was present every day. We never went to bed really wondering if we would wake up the next morning or I would see my friend. That isn't how we lived. America was always safe to me. I was always taught America was safe. We are the greatest nation in the world is all we ever heard. I never understood we had enemies. I was grown up in a pretty protected environment. Never worring about anything.
That moment they flew that airplane into the World Trade Center everything changed. I relized that we didn't have a protection shield around us like everyone else said we did. I had a slap across my face. It would leave a mark I will try and never forget.
The United States bonded together in this time of sorrow. It really brought the word united to a hole new level. Beyond anyone or anything describe. We really did prove that our name should be United States.
IM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN
God Bless America

I was in lunch at m high school and kids were telling us at that time what we thought were rumors. We had wondered why kids would be saying this if it was not true knowing alot of parents worked in the WTC. I had hoped it was a rumor, I was wrong. They were making announcements over the PA that some students were being sent home. We had a liturgy that afternoon in school and our musical director sang "Proud to be an American" and he got ovation after ovation! It was just so emotional he brought people into tears while he was singing! GOD BLESS AMERICA!
