My mom woke me up after the first plane crashed, as we both watched astonished. We couldn’t believe this was happening. Then a couple minutes later the second plane crashed into the other WTC. Thats when I realized America was in for a war. I was so scared, I was 7 months pregnant, and wondering if I was going to live to see my baby girl. I cried for the families of the people in the WTC and petagon. How could this happen. Why werent we prepared? Then when the two towers fell i prayed for the people to be saved. Then after it was all over the thousands of people who died, it crushed my heart. what if that were my family? The thing that made me the most angry, is when i heard the message to a mom on a answering machine from her little girl saying i love you mommy, and thinking how that mom missed the last chance to talk to her daughter, that would have killed me. Why did god let this happen? This was a tragedy that will never be forgotten. Maybe now our government will stop worrying about little crap and start worrying about the warnings. Let America Stand as One.
