Knew someone who perished?: No

Well I was already at school. My friend and I went to use the rest room when we heard our principal saying something on the speaker. He said that there was a bombing going on in New York. Well since 8th though 12th have their classes outside, we ran back to class to tell everyone about what was going on. Since we go to a christian school, our principal said for us to go to the Chapel. We all met in the chapel. I was really scared. They put on the news on a big screen so that everyone could see what was going on. As we were praying I started to cry. I think that mostly everyone was crying.

As I sat back down I looked around at the people at school. I saw little groups all around holding hands and crying as they were praying. The 8th grade girls and I sat around holding hand and praying for one of our friends because her dad works on base. On 9-11 our principal asked if anyone wanted to become a christian, to repeat what he was about to say. I said it. And ever since then I am a christian. That day was hard for everybody to go though. We got sent home at 11:00 am that day because they thought it would be best. As I was walking out the door my mom came to pick up my sister and me. I saw everybody crying and hugging one another. And none of us have forgotten that day. I would just like to say that my school and I are praying for everybody. And may God Bless everyone. Thank You!
