Where was I? I was in school in Social Studies class. We were having a test and it was very quiet. Then a teacher came in, whispered something in my SS teachers ear, and then left, sniffing. My teacher but on the television and the first words we heard were, "The World Trade Centers have been hit." I immediately looked up. My uncle worked there a lot. As the picture came up, everyone gasped. My teacher cursed loudly. I was totally shocked, but felt a bit secure. 'They'll clean it up. It was an accident.' So my teacher turned off the TV cause many people were getting upset. We returned to our work.
Fifteen minutes later, another teacher comes in in tears. She tells my teacher to turn on the news and (i swear this is true) the first words that came out of the television were, "The twin towers have collapsed. An estimate of the dead is being made. Maybe of four thousand."
I immediately was shocked. Everyone was gaping at the televison as if it had sprouted wings or something. As we watched the report, saw the smoke and flames, the reality sunk in. It was gone, people were dead. What was happening?
So many people were upset that day. I cried a very many times and a few people were sent home. But I will never forget where I was when it happened. I will never forget the shock that came over me. I will never forget what happened on the morning of September 11th, 2001.

On September 11th I was in my classroom taking a test. It was my third period class. All of the sudden I saw tears falling from my teachers face. She had told us to hurry up and finish our test. We did what we were told to do. The we turned on the news and found out what happend.A plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. I will never forget this day and where I was at. May God bless America. Also God bless all the families and people who were affected by this tragedy. Also to the men and women who are overseas fighting in war and may God grant us all peace. I hope we find Osama and shove a missel up his butt and hurt his country like he has done to us!!! GOD BLESS EVERYONE IN AMERICA AND TO OUR MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE SERVIG OUR COUNTRY!!! Jeremy I miss you and I know you are in the Navy now I pray to God everyday to watch over you. I miss you and Love ya. xoxox

It was the day of our middle school retreat but I don't think any of us realized just how important that day was. When the planes hit the building there was an anouncement over the P.A. system. Looking back I realize how much that retreat helped all of us deal with the shock. Our families weren't there so we comforted each other. I'll always see the tears running down my friends faces and the sight of students gathered around the visiting preist. For it isn't that one religion is could and the other bad. It isn't that Muslims are evil and Catholics good. It's not even the beliefs or theology of any specific religion. Religion is a miracle, something that grows out of people's need for compassion and love. You may sometimes doubt God, but never doubt the strength and purity of love.

I was at home, and dad called me down stairs and have a look at the tv. When I saw what was happening i went back up sairs to wake mum. By this time it was 2am (New Zealand time) on September 12th 2001. As I write this I am thinking about the people who lost their lives and / or loved ones. May God be with them.
