On the Wednesday morning i woke up like it was an ordinary school day. I walked out and i heard that the TV was on. So i walked in to find my mum watching the TV. I asked her what she was doing up. She said that two planes had gone into the the World Trade Centres.

As i watched this horrific event unfolding right in front of me, i was hoping it was a movie but it wasnt. I felt so sick i didn’t want to go to school that day.

At school i had Maths Period 1 and all we did was dicuss about what had happened in New York. One of my friends Christelle knew someone so we were trying to cheer her up.

Unfortunately the girl that she knew died because she fell over and got steped on. It was very sad for my friend she was crying heaps that day.

During the day that is what we talked about at school. One of my other friends, her boyfriend lives in America and she didn’t know whether he was alright or not.

At the end of the day she found out that he was ok so that was good.

I wish that event had never happened but it did so we should just keep the families in our thoughts.
