It was regular morning in our 6th Grade classroom so far on 9-11-01, we were doing our regular morning routines and our teacher was disucussing Primary Election Day, all of a sudden a kid sitting by the window in my class raised his hand and said “Mr………, the Twin Towers are on fire!” All of us went to the classroom window and saw a big ball of fire on one of the towers. We all were so emotional and so nervous. I even had goosebumps in myself. The teachers were saying it was probably a tragedy. Everyone was in shock, and even though the teacher tried to keep on teaching, the teacher and kids couldn’t stand the desperation and we all went to the window. The classroom intercom didn’t stop ringing because parents were picking up kids. I was called to go home and when I got home I watched the news all day long. I hardly ate or did anything, just watch the news and get information on what happened. Then I found out that it was terrorists who caused this disaster. 9-11 is a day to remember ALWAYS! God Bless America!!!! Osama, if you are reading this message, the US will GET YOU! We are united and we all WILL GET YOU DEAD OR ALIVE!!!!!!
