I was up at 7 am that day. I did what i normally do.. Turn on my cd player and got ready for the 2nd week of my highschool senior year. Life was better in the year 2001.. My class was head of the school..FINALLY

So I arrived late to homeroom as usual and saw the tv on.. all I seen was smoke everywhere.. I didnt pay much attention to it at all.. I just thought O.. ANOTHER day I didnt even expect this to be in America. I went to my Senior speech class and still no one even said a word.. IT wasnt until 10:15am That same morning when i felt my heart sink to my gut.. I was in complete shock when I arrived to my Global class, so of course then was when the principle said something to us.. I think way down deep we were all affraid for our own lives.. and felt so heart sick for the lives already lost. Theres no way to put this exactly into words what happend Sept. 11th. All I can say is I am glad the way the USA has come together. I just hope this was a lesson tought so my children to come will never witness something as cruel and sickening as this….
