I live in Fort Wayne,In and was at school on the 11th. It was 2:30 pm, about the time that we get out of class. I was in 6th grade band at the time. Suddenly, the principal told us that 4 airplanes had crashed into the World Trade Center, The Pentagon, and some town in Pennsylvania. We all started to panic. I wanted to head home. I ran to the bus, jumped in the seat, and as soon as I ran on, everyone did the same.

On the bus, no one said a word. Everyone was too shocked to say anything. As soon as I got inside my home, CNN showed the towers collapsing. I started to cry. My mom came in and started to cry, also. Even after a year, it runs through my mind almost every day. Osama bin Laden can kiss my ass! God Bless America
