On September 11, 2001 when we had the attack on America I was at school when it happen. It was after 1st block everyone was talking about it. At first I didn’t believe it or nothing till I got in 2nd block. For that whole block we just watch the news about it. Everyone was upset about it. I think everyone at my school was upset and scared about it. I thought nothing like that would ever happen in my life time but I was wrong. Everyone at my school came closer on that day and everyone wore red, white, and blue ribbons that some people had made.

Most of the guys that were going into the services was really worried and so was there girlfriend’s. I think September the 11th changed me and my friends. I know there is aleast a day that goes by I don’t forget about that day. I don’t know how any of the victums felt or any of the family that had loved ones died on that day. When ever I hear that song Where Were You (When the World Stop Turning) By: Alan Jackson. It always reminds me about that day. I know everyone in my community took more pride about the firefighters, police, and the ems people. My dad is a firefighter and if we lived in New York and if he was one of those people that died I know I would surely miss him. To me he is brave to go into burning buildings.
