I’m 16 yrs old now, and on September 11th i was on my senior school trip. Some of my friends were walking up to me and all they said was “A plane has crashed”. Most of us thought nothing of it but the very next morning, bright and early, we all made our way to the nearest convenience store to buy the newspapers. What i saw sent chills down my spine. The headline read: “WAR ON THE WORLD!”I bought all the papers and the pictures horrified me. I couldn’t help but cry for the people who lost their lives and the families who lost their relatives. When i returned home i saw the footage for the first time and again i cried. To this day, 1 year on, it sickens me to see the horrific images. God bless everyone who has lost someone, and God Bless America.
