I was barely 7 yrs. old, I started school at 8:50am, I only live two blocks away from the school, so I left at 8:45 with my mom. When I got to school, everything was normal. Until the second plane hit. We had absolutely no knowlege of what was going on. We were not evacuated. My school, is open concept, therefore, it has no walls, u can see all the classrooms, and here them! Phones rang the whole day!! After Lunch/Recess, i barely remember teachers crying, but trying to hide it. My sister was in 7th grade, at Northeast Middle SChool, (where i am now an eighth grader)the volleyball teams 1st game was that day. When my mom and sister both showed up to get me at 3:25 I was like what’s goin on!? why aren’t you at your game. She replied, because of all thats going on. I was like, what are you talking about. When I got home, and saw the television, I couldn’t stop crying. It was so sad. At around 5:30pm @ STS. Simon & Jude R.C. Church, we attended a special mass. The next day, most kids, still were not 100% sure of what happened, so the teachers finally told us. ***Also, flight 93 flew over the lehigh valley!! if the map is rihgt, just north of my school!!

Please God, protect us from evil!! don’t let anyone attack us, because we will fight back! this country was created with war, we will fihgt until terrorism is stopped, now approaching the 6th anniversery of 911 I ask you (god) to Bless all people of the world, and I also ask citizens of the world, to pray for those, the people lost, the people affected, also for the terrorists, they need some serious help, but most importantly never forget that day, and never forget that no matter what happens, we will prevail, and come out strong!! GOD BLESS US ALL!!
