It was the beginning of a another normal day in california. For some reason I woke up around 4:40 in the morning on that tuesday couldnt sleep so I started watching abc news, finally decided to crawl back into bed and try to get some more sleep before i had to leave for a class. Just a hour or so later my mom wakes me up vigorously telling me that a plane crashed into the world trade center, that first moment I thought of was it must have been a little single engine plane so I walked into the living room and that’s when I saw it hit, my heart sank to my stomach.

That’s when the fear kicked in, what was happening to us. How did such a huge plane crash into the Twin Towers. I sat in the chair and watched everything as it was happening. My heart was so saddened I felt for all those people whose lives we being lost. Than there was the report of a fire at the pentagon and than later confirmed another plane flew into the building. Some of the major symbols of our country were being attacked. Than the next report came out that a plane in PA crashed, no one knew what had happend there until later. Finally another blow hit the nation the south tower collapses followed a short while later by the north tower. So many more lives lost, the men and women who werent able to escape from the buildings. I was complete disbelief of what was happening. Fear was running through me I didnt know what was going to happen next. I don’t think I will ever be able to forget the events that happend. I can still go back to the day and remember every detail clearly like it just happened yesterday. From this catastrophic event we have reaffirmed our patriotism for this country and United We Will Stand. God Bless America
