I was at school, in band, playing the Stars and Stripes Forever, when the dean came in and announced that we had been attacked. At first, I didn't think it was a big deal, and then I saw the pictures. It really shocked me, but most of all it made me angry. Whoever is responsible will pay for this. You just don't mess with the U.S.

I was senior lounge laughing with a few of my friends. We were outside and I remember I was working on my celtic cross patch. The senior lounge teacher asked us to come inside because the principle was about to make a statement over the intercom.

We came in and stood there staring at the intercom as our princple told us that the twin towers were in ruins. The first thing that came into my mind was, "Oh my!" Then, "What if a war starts?" The rest of the day was filled with gossip, fears and tears. It was a day I'd never forget.

I was sitting in my 9th grade Chemistry class, when all of a sudden the computer lab teacher came in and said, "Turn on the TV. The World Trade Center is on fire." as though it were the most normal thing in the world. I could be wrong, but the chemistry teacher said, "Cool!" and turned on the TV. It was then when I realized the extent of what just happened. By that time it was after the second plane crashed, and they were showing the footage of the crash. I kept thinking to myself, "Whoever did this wanted everyone to see the second plane crash live." The strange thing is, my emotions never really changed through the whole event. It was only after that I started to really think about it.

I was asleep. Our school has sleep-in days on Tuesday mornings, and I woke up an hour later than usual. A few minutes before I was about to leave, my mom called me from work, asking if my dad was awake yet. He was, so I told her so, and the she told me to tell him to turn on the tv, that some planes had been hijacked and attacked the World Trade Center. I had no idea what she was talking about, until I turned on the TV and saw the smoke and then saw them collapse. My dad was sitting there, just saying 'Oh my GOD.'

I kept feeling chills just watching it, and it took me a while to understand fully what had happened. I don't even remember what I was feeling until I saw one of my friends who's cousin works near the Trade Center, and I remember feeling so terribly upset. I suppose before that I was in shock.
