On this day i was sitting with my friend Diane at her house making breakfast and had just dropped off my daughter Carissa at school. I sat at the table watching something on TV when the emergcy alarm came on the tv. I saw the live videos from channel 4 news prod cast. And was completely terrified with what i saw. I remember getting in my car and going back to carissa school to get her. I was affaird that something bad was going to happen to her and felt the need to have her near me at all time. When i got to her school i signed her out and we sat in the car as she asked “Mommy is the world coming to the end ” ” because i saw so many teachers crying” “what is happening mommy Please tell me” . As we drove home to our house i tried to think about what to show her and what to tell her. I really couldn’t say to much being that she was only 11 years old and had no idea what was going on . I got home and turned the tv on and sat her down the other way from the tv. As i sat and watched the news with the volume down and tried to explained to her what had and what was happen to the twin towers and what they where I told her about the other planes and what the others where doing and why they and we all thought the other bad people as i called them to her where doing.

It was so awful telling her and watching her face change with confusing to tears. She did not understand why people in this world hated us in America would want to hurt us. At that time i turn the tv off and i couldn’t go on explaining what theses people where doing and thinking !!! But i did say this to her. “they where taught at a young age something that was wrong. They where taught things that where bad and taught things that at that time they had no idea the wrong and maybe were right in others eyes . I told her that they didn’t get a chance to learn about the United States and the people and how much we loved others and didn’t judge others in other countries. But everyone listen to what the important people in our countries and the people that are important to us and that is what we believe!!! I hope i have told her right and she has learned later . The right and wrongs about this day. and i hope she wont judge all people . And i hope my other 2 daughters that are now 15 and 8 will listen, read, learn and understand everything that has happen on this day of (/11/2012
