Well I live in Ohio and in my house when you are sleeping really no one wakes you up unless they have to. I was sleeping and I guess it was around 12 my little sister came upstairs and woke me up and said “Andrew wake up terrorists attacked us today” and I was so completely out of it I actually said to “Go away it happens all the time!” A short while after that trying to fall asleep it kinda kicked it so I got up and ran down the stairs and found my mother crying in the kitchen watching this horrible event take place. She, along with my parter, actually saw the second plane hit the towers live on TV. I guess it really wasn’t until about say 2 PM when it really sank it, I litterally broke down in tears, I couldn’t believe it, it was like watching a movie that just would not end. I have about 550 channels on my cable and every channel was playing a news segment. It was like I was in hell, like I died and litterally went to hell. I didn’t really know what to think.

Watching all my friends and family crying and me crying myself it was just too unbearable for me. Once it got later I pretty much had control over myself. But I will never forget what I said to my little sister, its just way too funny because I feel so stupid, but so horrible to think about knowing what actually happened.
