september the 11th was the first day of my mid year exams. i was in year 11 and my first exam was english. i woke up that morning to my radio talking about the attack on the first tower. i turned on the news channel and watched everything happening up until i had to leave for school and my exam. everyone at school was talking about it and were pretty traumatised- it was just too bizarre. we went in for the exam and i kept on accidentally writing “america” and “george bush.” i actually did really well but i dont think ill ever be the same.
i cant really describe how this affected me but i just dont feel as safe as before. it was far far away but i still cried for the people who died or lost people. just toooooooo awful. i am flying to canada in a week and i cant help being a little bit nervous. ive always had a bit of a fear of flying but this just makes it a little worse. this isnt going to stop me doing what i want though so whatever to those evil people out there.
