on 911 i was in my social studies class in 8th grade. we were learning about americas history when all of a sudden a teacher ran into the room and said to put the tv on channel 3. as we did we looked to our amazment to see that one of the twin towers was up in flames. we watched for a while when out of the blue we saw a jumbo jet go right into the second building the first thing that came to mind was how could this happen… two jumbo jets run right into americas trade centers right after another. for a while i thought it could of been just a quincidence but then relizing that it was a terroist attack because people were jealous of america being free and people living here with different cultures and religons.

right after seeing the twin towers up in flames we had to switch classes. we were in our science class and our teacher was explaining to us that the towers were built to be undestructable and that nothing can take them down. about a 1/2 after the last plane crashing a teacher came into the room told us to put the tv on because the twin towers were collapsing. the teacher was so shocked that he just finished telling our class that the buildings couldnt fall but then they did. a little while later we found out that an other plane crashed into the pentigon and an other crashed in penn. i was told that, that plane was heading to camp david because thats where the president goes for vacation… now that i look back at everything thats happend i still cant believe that someone can be jealous of america because we fought for what we have and they dont like that….
