I couldn't believe my eyes when i turned on the news that day. I was in shock, as was the world. I went about my morning as usual, got in the car, and drove to work. The news flash came on the radio that the Pentagon had just been hit by an airplane too. I remember sitting at the stop light and it hit me.. My mother is there. I frantically grabbed my cell phone and called her office. No answer. I got to work and kept trying to get through and still no luck. She always calls me whenever anything happens up there.. whether it be a bomb threat, a demonstration, or an evacuation. Three hours later, her call finally came through. I heard her voice say, " honey, i'm ok, i'm out of there, i just need a hug." She was in tears. She was just down the hall from where it hit. I was so relieved at first, but then i felt the guilt because someone else had lost a mother, a father, a loved one. I picked up my daughter and our family gathered together and hugged all night. She is always our support and this time we were hers. The affect this has left on her is unexplainable, unless you were there. She loses sleep, she tenses up when she hears a plane, everyday she walks in the building, she remembers. She always told us to make sure you tell someone you love them because you never know if you will see them again... and we tell her everyday. We are thankful for the opportunity to do so.

I am currently a 10th grade student, but on the morning of September 11th 2001 i was a terrified little Freshman who had just started highschool and that was my biggest worry in the world. As I sat there in my English class looking at the clock way too many times another English teacher came into the room and told my teacher that the World Trade Center had been "bombed".. I live in MA about 25 miles north of Boston and there is a World Trade Center in Boston, i got very nervous because i thought thats what she was talking about. When the bell wrang i heard everyone in the halls talking about it but none of us really knew exactly what happened. When i finally got home from school that day i saw my mom in front of the TV crying and i asked her what was wrong? she explained what really happened and i was absolutely shocked. So many things ran through my head! I sat there glued to the TV for a couple hours and let it set it. I felt so much hurt inside for all those people who lost someone they loved that day, and didnt even get to say goodbye, and i had so much hatred for the people who did this to our country...now i cant believe its been a year, it doesnt feel like that long...i saw this quote and i think it's really fitting for september 11th and i thought you all might like it..."Sometimes, no matter how much faith we have, we lose people. But you never forget them. And sometimes it's those memories that give us the faith to go on."

The main thought that ran through my mind was that I wanted to leave work, go pick my 4 year old daughter up from daycare and hold her as tight as I could. I wanted to go home very badly.

I WAS SITTING AT HOME WATCHING T.V. WHEN THE NEWS FLASHES STARTED, IT WAS HORRIFFIC. I FELT FOR ALL THE PEOPLE INVOLVED BUT ESPECIALLY FLIGHT CREW AND CABIN CREW AS I TOO WORK AS CABIN CREW. EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE TRAINED IN THE EVENT OF HIJAKINGS, THE THOUGHT OF THE POOR CREW ON THOSE 4 FLIGHTS THAT DAY UPSETS ME. THEY ARE ALSO THE HEROES OF 9/11. GOD BLESS THEM AND THIER FAMILLIES. XXX
