September 11th
1. Time Every Store was closed.
1. Time I wished I could start the day over.
1. Time I showed an intrest in history.
1. Time I will remember an aquaintence birthday. {9/11.}
1. Time I Stood for a national athem.
1. Time The same thing was on all 100 channels.
1. Time the entire nation held a candle up all at the same time.
1. Time I respected the flag.

On a better note. An inside Joke between me and my dad on October 8th.
THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. {Name of Starwars movie.}

I was in my lab at Emory University in Atlanta. A coworker said that something big was going on, and to log onto CNN...but we couldn't. The website was just jammed. So, we took down an old black and white TV we had on top of one of our cabinets and tuned into the Today show. The WTC looked like a giant smokestack above New York. I grew up in northern NJ, and saw the WTC every time we would get on the highway, and I had been in the building many times...and the scene was just unreal. Then the second plane hit, and everyone was just in total shock. Some people had tears in their eyes. I called my mother. We spoke about people that we thought might be in the building at the time, or that work in close proximity. I sat down next to the phone and cried. I hadn't cried in years. Someone who knew I was from the area asked me if I thought the towers would collapse, and I said "oh, never, they are so huge and strong that they can withstand it." Minutes later I was proven wrong. Words can't express how I felt. Hours later, I got in touch with a good friend who works near the Battery and who was witness to it all. I was relieved to talk to him and to know he was okay. I felt guilty for weeks after...any time I was doing anything fun or remotely unimportant. I made a visit to NYC in October, I felt like I needed to see it in person. I was lost in New York without the towers there as a landmark. I still get angry and sad thinking about it to this day. We should never forget what happened. If you need a reminder, look at some photos. Hopefully you'll be mad as hell all over again and realize the depth of evil that was thrust upon us that day.

I was at school when it happened. I'm thirteen years old, and I just kept thinking this can't be happening, this can't be happening.
I remember how in all of the movies, like Pearl Harbor, it would show someone writing the date, and it would be very haunting. I wrote the date. I'd thought about that. I'd written the date days before and thought, is this the day that America will be attacked, is this the day it happens?
I never thought that when I actually did write the infamous date. I'd never expected to write an infamous date. I skipped second period, hid in a stairwell, and wept.
I had never wanted to write an infamous date.

I received a phone call from my sister telling me that the United States was being attacked around 9:15 on the morning of 9/11 and spent the rest of the day wandering around praying and not quite believing what was happening. My thoughts kept focusing on Sadam and bin Laden...in my heart knowing that it was the beginning of major changes, not just in the USA, but worldwide.

One thing we can be thankful for is that we have a man in the office of President who is strong morally and willing to take a Christian stand on issues...thank God for George Bush. God Bless you, President Bush, and God Bless America.

Sadam...bin Laden...you can't break the USA, nor can you put an end to those of us who are Christian and willing to stand for what we believe is right.

As I sit here looking back on the events of September 11, I am heartbroken, angry, and scared. Who of us knows if and when it may occur again? We pray that day never comes, but as you said in the welcome page about Pearl Harbor, we may never rest easy. I am sad in my heart for families who lost loved ones. I am angry at the cowardly way all of this was carried out. If you cannot attack us directly, face to face, then do not do it!
My prayers are always with our forces fighting over seas. My love to all of America. Russell W. Kradel
