Note from
It is unfortunate that the events of 9/11 often times bring out anger and hatred, often initiated and amplified by our lack of exposure to other cultures. In light of the post below we have to add that the feelings are solely an expression of the writer’s view, and in no way represent the views of staff.


I was living in Preston, Idaho. I was rocking my newborn baby Sophie while I was watching the Today Show. I was with my parents but they were sleeping while I fed my baby Sophie. When I watched the sight on the Today Show I really didn’t react until the second tower fell down. Then I woke up my parents out of bed because I was concerned. Then I hurried and called my sisters and best friend. That day I watched the news all day. The 9/11 attack did not change my daily routine but it changed how I traveled. My view of Muslims changed, I was scared of them. Because they were behind the act of terrorism and made it clear that they wanted to kill Americans. Besides the tragedies the heroic acts that were performed were amazing. People pulled together and some people came closer to God. It pulled the country together.
