I was at school on that fateful day…having just started 9th grade just 3 days ago!! after it happened, (about 5-10 minutes after the first plane hit,) the principal came over the loudspeaker and said, and i’ll NEVER forget what he said…he said “attention!! i have some horrible news…an airplane has crashed into the north tower of the world trade center in new york city, and–wait!i’ve just recieved word that a SECOND plane has hit the south tower of the world trade center!! we now believe that terrorists are currently attacking this country! and, i’ve just been told that a third plane has hit the pentagon in washington D.C.!! oh, this is clearly an attack on this country!! i am here-by ordering a complete evacuation of the building and ALL STUDENTS ARE TO REPORT HOME!! NO EXCEPTIONS!!”…after that, everything was quiet for about 3 seconds, then ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE! there was screaming, and speeding,(people in there cars trying to get home.) that was the worst day ov my life, and i thought things couldn’t get any worse then that, until i hear that as many as 20 planes have been hi-jacked, and there taking them all over the place…it was horrible.
