Dear World,

I hope and pray that nothing like this ever happens again. I live in Australia, when the event occured I was asleep but my husband was up watching TV - he woke me up and said you have to watch the news - America is under attack. I got up and could not believe what I was seeing - when I first looked the two buildings were still up - I could just barely see the people throwing themselves from the building - I was shocked. I was crying and could not go back to sleep. The next day when I came into work everyone was watching the TV and there seemed to be silence in the air. We were all very unhappy.

on september 11th I was in my language arts class when my teacher received a call on her cell phone. it was her husband who called to tell us to turn our television on that the towers had been struck by an airplane.At first i thought it was a small cessna single engine craft but later on the news i found out it was a commercial jet.then at that very moment while watching the news i saw the second plane hit.I knew at that moment this was extremely serious.the bell later rung and i left my class.while walking down the hall i saw a fammiliar art teacher he looked at me with eyes filled with tears and said the pentagon has just been hit.my exact words were "God my God". while in my math class the next class after language arts we were watching the news and that few moments i saw both towers collaps. i had to be exused from my class,and i remember trying to take i long walk and clear my mind.that day was horrid not just because it was the worst attack in americas history, but because at the 6th month anniversary of the attacks i found out my best freind died. God Bless America!

i was walking through the university of arkansas student union when a saw a huge group of people gathered around a television, I asked a fellow student what was going on, and he said "a plane flew into the world trade center" at first i thought he meant like a little self piloted plane, but when i saw the screen for the first time, was just bout the time the first tower collapsed. I couldn't believe my eyes, i felt like i was watching a bad action movie or something. it didn't seem real. i was glued to the television all that day, and the events of that horrible day still cling to me.

I was in my 3rd period class at Riverside Military Academy. My friend from Echo CO. came over and told me that the towers were hit, my art teacher brought in a tv and soon after another class poured in, the photography class. We surrounded the screen. By this time both towers have been hit, and the Pentagon was about to be. We were astonished, thinking we were the strongest country, invulnerable, and now this. I called my grandparents because my uncle works for the US Government at a military installation, and travels to the Pentagon occasionally. He was okay, but I was still troubled. In the end, every cadet there who saw what we saw was ready to join up. The patriotism shown even in the cadets shady about being there was astonishing, it brought alot of people together. God bless those who lost their lives, and those who gave their lives that others may live.

I was sitting in statistics class when my teacher turned on the TV. It was 5 minutes before the end of class, and she doesn't usually do that, so we were all wondering why. Suddenly images of smoke and fire filled the screen, and I read on the bottom of the TV that the World Trade Center had been hit by a plane. At first, I thought... "There's no way this was intentional. Someone had to be drunk, it's an accident."

Then came second period, where we watched the news and found out that it was no accident. Someone had attacked us.

Luckily, I didn't lose anyone in the tragedies, but they still hit too close to home, and I hope that nothing like this happens again. It's a little interesting to be able to live through history, but I wish I didn't have to.
