First I’ll say hi amd I’m from Australia on Tuesday Sept 11th (Was still Monday in the US) was just a normal day for any Australian. Well that day I was home on the net and watching TV, So I watched my normal shows about 10:30pm I thought I’ll turn the news on just to see what was going on, so I made myself nice and cosy in front of the heater. Soon the newslady said The first plane had crashed into the World Trade Centre, this was breaking news. I thought oh just a plane crash so I was gettin ready for bed but the news unfold. I watched the 2nd plane crashed into the WTC the news unfold more and by that time it was starting to hit me that this was no accident it was Terrious attacks, I suddenly got tired and I went to see what the time was and it was 1:10am my time. Watching the WTC Go down made my tummy turn I was like agh no. I thought I was watching a movie. Anyway the next day I turned on the TV and it was still going then I jumped on the net and checked if everyone in The US Was alright. I had 2 of my cousins over there I had forgot they were there until later in the day I thought No my cousins are over in the US. I ran to my Nana to see if my 2 cousins were okay and they were I just had to make sure because I heard that one of my cousins was gonna board the plane to NYC That day of the attack. He didn’t in the end, anyway GOD BLESS AMERICA!
