I was at school. My friend told me. I thought she was joking, but several seconds later our principal told us to go home. My dad came to pick me up, as well as some of my friends because they didn't have anywhere to go. We spent the day watching the news at my house in disbelief.

My husband and I flew out of Boston on September 11 at 8:05 a.m. between the highjacked planes. We saw the American plane ahead of us on the runway and found out the other United plane took off a few minutes after we did. We were told we were landing in Detroit by our pilot who told us over the intercom that America had been attacked by terrorists. When we entered the airport and glimpsed scenes on the TV we knew it was true. We hurried to phone our loved ones, as they were worried that our plane was the one that was highjacked. We found a room at a hotel and like everyone else, watched TV for all the details, until we were allowed to continue our flight on Thursday evening back to Denver. We have shed many tears and felt extreme sadness over these events and thank God we were spared.

The day of the horrible attacks, I was at school. People were talking about it but I thought nothing of it at the time. When the bell rang for 1st period we all went in the gym to get ready for athletics. I walked in and there on the T.V. were the Twin Towers.
That day we did not dress out and we all sat in front of that T.V and cried and cried.
I am very sorry for all the losses that, that day bought to us. I hope that the terriost are caught and we can end this ugly war.

I was laid off at the time. Had just sent the kids off to school and settled down with a book and sort of listening to the news.

I saw the second plane hit live and just started crying. I never did finish reading that book.

I will remember this along with the Challenger blowing up for as long as I live.

The day of the horrible attacks, I was at school. People were talking about it but I thought nothing of it at the time. When the bell rang for 1st period we all went in the gym to get ready for athletics. I walked in and there on the T.V. were the Twin Towers. Now I knew that the situation was seriuos. We all sat down and watched in disgust and horror at the footage.
When the tower collasped I was in absolute shock. I never thought that this great symbol of Freedom, and this great symbol of what America is and stands for would ever collapse. It was like we were all watching a movie, it was so unbelieveable.
When the bell rang for passing period me and my friends started to talk about what had happened. We started to ask who in the world would or could have done this to us? What did we do to anyone to make them so mad that they crash a plane in to the WTC and kill thousands of innocent people?
I am very sorry for all the lives that were taken on that day. No one EVER deserves to have to go through a horrible thing like that. I hope that the terrirists are caught. I hope that this horrible people get what is coming to them. Yeah that is mean but the killed innocent people for no reason.

God Bless America!!
