First and foremost I would like to introduce myself. My name is Andrea Juarez I’m 16 years old and a student in high school. I remember quite well what happend that day I woke up at exactly 5:30 am in the morning to go to bible study at my church, it seem like any other day I would struggle to get out of bed to go and read scriptures.Well When i got back home at 6:45am i was getting ready to go to school. When I finally got to school everything started going wrong I had lost my homework and I was not feeling good, at that point i knew this was no regular day, well when we got to class it was 8:05am and we started our daily work in class and at 9:05 am our principle came on the P.A. system and told us about what had just happend, we all heard her crying but we did not quite understand what she meant.

As soon as she got off the P.A. system we asked our teacher what was that about when she finally explain to us we all went into chaos we wanted to watch the news and many of us wanted to go home. It was a moment in my life that I will never forget. We will always have that event in our hearts and never will we forget the people who died saving others. God Bless America!!!
