So yeah my title sounds ignorant and disrespectful right? not quite.. i was in seventh grade tech ed we had happened to have to be in the library that day and were watching the news i didnt know anything had happened but when we watched the news it had shown the first tower being hit with a jet. we watched and minutes later we witnessed the second plane crash into the other tower…

i remember me and my friends had been sitting at a table putting makeup on eachother just not paying attention until the second tower was hit , then it was all of a sudden so real. i remember feeling scared i just wanted to go home and be with my family. i was unsure of what was going to happen next i remember the principal coming over the loud speaker and talking about it and us having a moment of silence.

the bus ride home i just sat quite just like almost everyone else on the bus.when i got home the news was on and my parents were sitting in front of the tv. we sat like that all night. i remember thinking to my self ” why would someone do something so terrible, who would want to do this to us?” i remember in the following weeks when we started finding out who we thought it was i just got so angry. i think that this situation is a reason im thinking of joining the air force. it made me realize when thuosands of our citizens were shiped overseas that i would be honored to fight for my country aganst people who take innocent lives like they did on 9/11/01.
