I was in school last year,when I was going to switch classes I saw my Social Studies teacher (Mr.Snyder) crying.I new something was wrong when I saw him crying.A lot of my friends asked him why he was crying,and he said because the World Trade Center just had an airplane go through it.I didnt even know about the World Trade Center till September 11,2001.All we did in school for like the next 2-3 weeks was talk about what has happened.I’m only 13 but this has effected me deeply. I’m so scared to find out what is going to happen tomorrow (it will be the 1yr. anniversery) but I think and hope that everything will be ok.

I feel so bad for the people who died on 9/11 and the people who has lost someone special in their life.I really wish we would find Osma Bin Laden and punish him deeply. This has been a big effect on everyone in the U.S. but we really need to put this behind us and move on with our lives.My best friend and I are so paranoid because every time we hear an airplane we totally freak out.But I’m really trying to put the past behind me.Another thing that I’m really scared about is the Wes Nile Virus.I dont even like to stay outside a lot anymore because of the new virus.I think that the Wes Nile Virus is another act of terrorism.I think that we as the kids and the parents should do any and everything we can to stop whats going on.We will be ok.You wanna know why I know that for a fact???

Because we are Americans BABY!!!
