Knew someone who perished?: Yes

My alarm rang, I got dressed for school like another kid. I thought this was going to be a regular day. But something terrible happened. While I was at school two planes went into the Twin Towers. I had no idea that this was happening. While I was at school people were dying, people were running away. When I went to my grammies house I looked at the t.v. I thought this wasnt that important. I went online and looked back I saw people jumping off the building and then I saw people running away from it. I was attached to the t.v. all day. I was crying and very sad for the families that lost people. I went to bad with tears running down my face. I couldnt sleep until midnight. When I went back to school the next day we made flags and we had a monment of silence. I watched the t.v. that day and it said, September Eleventh ” The Day That Changed America”.
