I live in Perth Western Australia, I am 16 years old and never thought i’d live to see something so terribly horrifying. It was around 8:30pm and I was going back to my then boyfriend’s aunties house after going to the movies. As soon as we walked through the front door we sat down and watched the images of the World Trade Centre enveloped in flames. At first I didn’t understand what was happening, it seemed so confusing at first but I later went back home to find my parents watching the exact same images. I asked them what was going on and they told me that planes had flown into the twin towers. I stayed up that whole night watching the chilling images of the planes flying into the two buildings, school practically stopped that next day. My mum later told me that my auntie had visited the World Trade Centre the day before they came down, which really freaked me out. I can’t remember how many times I cried that week and the extreme anger I felt towards the beasts who killed many innocent people. Now I know just how evil man can be and how much damage they can cause. My heart goes out to the citizens of America, especially those who lost loved ones in the event of 9/11. Also, I salute the emergency services for risking their own lives in an attempt to save others. God bless you America.
