Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No
Knew someone who perished?: No

I was home from my late shift 3pm-11pm and I was talking to my boyfriend at the time and he was telling me what had happend on Sept. 11. I know that he won’t joke about something like this and I had turned the tv on and I stood there in shock as I watched CNN. I just stood there and cried. My heart sank and my eyes were foced on the tv in shock. My heart will always go out to all of those who fought, and died. I was scared because I didn’t know what was going to happen next after what I had seen. I was very angery at those who decided to make their “statement” and hit America like they did. But I never not once stero-typed any Muslim. Or put the blame on them. I do believe that my life has changed since 9/11. I treat it like as thought there is no tommorow. I have been looking at pictures from 9/11 and reading the articles and I hope to God that those who were involved do get punished and that justice is served. I was watching CNN “Presents” today and at the end of the show the thing that stood out was the people shouting with their fits supporting Osama Bin Ladin. All I can say is “How can some people support a coward”?
