The morning of September 11th was just an ordanarry day for a 6th grader. Get up take a shower get dressed, you know… the usual.

When i got out of the shower and dressing my mom came to me and said your grandma just called and to watch the news. It was 6:45am (i live in arizona) and i was watching the news. The first thing that popped into my head was is my cousin alright and are all of my friends handling the okay.

I got to school and we all were very upset. We couldn’t go to recess because wear i am is the 2nd largest copper mine in the USA. So there was a pretty big scare. None of us could do our work, we just sat and whispered to each other untill my teacher had us discuss about it and that is when it hit me that the usa was really in war. I didn’t know who with, but i knew we were.

That day was a horibble day and i am very sorry to the people who lost a loved one or ones. I lost my cousin shane and my bestfriend lost her brother. I love you america and we are gonna kick some major booty!
