Ok it was awkward. I was in my boring class World History I’ll never forget when there was a knock on our classroom door and our teacher went out. She came back in with a terrified look on her face and we were all lke what?! are you ok etc. We had one of those Tv’s in the class that was up at the top corner so she turned it on to some news station and she stated that we were under attack. Some kids were quiet others were going nuts saying omg omg and cursing. I just sat there looking at smoke coming out of a building she thought it was just an accident like a plane had crashed into the tower but all of a sudden we see this fireball. Ok that made me jump out my seat. I knew they were the twin towers my teacher turned it off imediately and said she’d be right back. we got all loud and finally when she came back we were asking what happend! whats going on??! she told us we’re being attacked some of us called our parents the teacher was out of it she sat down at her desk and finally managed to calm us down. she said buses would be here soon to pick us and she said if you want to call your parents go ahead everybody’s leaving. i called my mother and thats that. the whole day was quiet nobody talked the neighbors were quiet. i was quiet. i stayed glued to the tv for the nex 2 or 3 weeks. we talked about it in school we had to write a paper on it. it was awkward.
