Honestly, i thought that when the news coverage began that awful day of the first crash, was an accident, then when the second plane hit, i was terrified. I was in my third period English class in a computer lab when the news came on. I looked at the monitor, in shock, as the first plane had left it’s mark. The flames were horendous. I thought that it was an accident. When the second plane hit, i was in tears. I thought about all the people that had died. Unsure of what was going to happen next, the first tower collapsed. I watched in absolute terror. I went to the rest of my classes unwillingly knowing that I was going to see the shocking replays. The events that occured on that day left me fearing for the Nations security. Before my eighth period class, i was in the school’s guidance office in a uproaring cry. I was practically crying on my councilor’s shoulders. As an adult, i feared for all. I thought that the world was ending. At this time, i was asking God to give me comfort and love. I couldnt bear the overwhelming sadness that day left on everyone. In October, i had decided to do my Senior Graduation project about 9-11. I am presenting it to my school respectively on September the Eleventh; a day that will live in a terrible sadness, forever. I have written a letter to President Bush (i dont really like him) asking him if he would come be a part of my presentation. My fiance, a volunteer firefighter will be speaking and reflecting on the events of 9-11. I prayed that day and for a long time thereafter, that God would comfort everyone affected by the events of September the Eleventh. Thats all i could do. If you are intrested in seeing my unique presentation, you can e-mail me at JCsGilr17@juno.com . My project will be presented at West Chester East Senior High School in West Chester, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, September 11, 2002. Please e-mail me first. Thank you, and God Bless America.
