Note from
It is unfortunate that the events of 9/11 often times bring out anger and hatred, often initiated and amplified by our lack of exposure to other cultures. In light of the post below we have to add that the feelings are solely an expression of the writer’s view, and in no way represent the views of staff.


The 9/11 attack happened while I lived in Penrose UT. I was just getting my kids on the bus when I walked inside and turned on the news. Right when I turned it on the first plane hit. I was so scared I didn’t know what to do, I kept watching and I saw the second plane hit. I was getting really upset because I wished I was there to help. I spent the rest of the day watching the news. When my kids got home I was so happy to see them and know that they were with me and I wouldn’t let them get hurt. It didn’t change my daily life. My view of Muslims changed because they would be willing to kill innocent people. I did not see anything good that came about the 9/11 attacks.
