Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No
Knew someone who perished?: No

I woke up at 7:25 am to go to high school and the day was too beautiful and when my dad picked me up he told me that the World Trade Center was destroyed by terrorists.

It was so horrible when I saw it on T.V; I was going insane and I cried all night long because of the tragedy and I could not believe that happened.

My hometown will never be the same, especially the United States.

I want to go home since that’s where my other family members live and I just don’t know what will happen next because of all those bomb scares and what is going on right now.
