I WAS WAKING UP RATHER LATE THAT DAY. EVERYONE WENT TO WORK. I WAS GETTING COFFEE READY WHEN I TURNED ON MY COMPUTER AND THERE IT WAS. JUST AFTER THE 1ST PLANE HIT. I WAS SPEECHLESS!!!
I FELT VUNERABLE AND DID NOT EVEN WANT TO GO OUTSIDE FOR FEAR OF THE SAME THING HAPPENING HERE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. WE ON THE WEST COAST WERE JUST AS MOVED BY THIS AS THE REST OF OUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY. WAVE THAT FLAG AMERICA! WE ARE THE GREATEST AND MOST LUCKY COUNTRY IN THIS WORLD!
GOD BLESS US ALL!

On Septmeber 11th, I remember that I was at work. A co-worker had the t.v. on and came in to tell me that the first plane had hit. I was already late for a meeting and was in a hurry to go about my day. I went in and was watching the news story when the second plane hit the other tower. At that moment, it didn't matter to me if I was late--or even missed my meeting altogether. I was no longer "rushed," only sick to my stomach over what I just witnessed on t.v. I was praying that the people in the buildings would be able to get out safely. I think about this every day of my life. It has changed me forever!! I no longer rush through life.

I was probably getting ready for school when the first plane hit. It was just another regular day... to me. I didn't even watch the news that morning. September 11 was before I could drive myself, so my friend came and picked me up for school, just like any other day. This is when I found out that the world trade center had been hit. It kind of didn't click in until I got to school and saw on the news the second plane hitting the other tower. When I saw that, I immediatly thought of how many people were dying at that very moment. Then in 1st hour we watched the news and that's when tower 2 went down. Some of the students in my class had been talking about other things but when that building collapsed everyone shut up, I'm sure all of America shut up and all anyone could hear was the roar of the building.

Hi,
My name is Ellie and I live in Israel.
I was getting ready to go to a girl scouts meet when my grandmother called me into the tv room... at first i thought that it was most likely an accidant, that the plane must have gone out of control.
My second thought, which turned out to be true, was that it was a terrorist attack, but i ruled that out almost straight away, because, well--hey, it's America. things arn't meant to happen like that there...
I wasn't really shaken by it at first, because i see so much death and carnage happening to my country, that i wasnt phased by what happened... seeing something on t.v is a lot less frightening than actually being in a terror attack (i was standing at a bus stop when a suicide bomber blew himself up), but the thing that woke me up, was the number of people killed, not the terror act itself(hey, im used to them).
God bless America.

Hello my name is Ahmed Muhamedov
I was at work in Grozny,Chechnya (officialy Russia) when i heard the news at about 4 in the evening. I could'nt believe that something like this could happen in America.It seems not even anyone is safe from terrorists now.Being from an unstable country i know what devastation war can bring, so we pray for peace and freedom for tyranny.
