I will never forget that day. i was in government class doing a project on current events. we were in the library and this day was like any other day. i found myself glued to my computer in the library and working hard to find my 20 articles on the middle east. the librarian came out and said if anyone wants to cover the news than they can use that as one of their articles, and i remember thinking that we have never been allowed to use an undocumented source on our projects. then i looked up and my eyes were glued to a screen filled with smoke, we had tuned in when the airplane headed for the pentagon hit. it was so amazing to me i remember watching and thinking.. this is a joke this is fake, this can’t be real. and then we learned of the second plane that hit the world trade center building. that was so scary for me. all the students headed on their way, most of them hearing about the news from friends, word of mouth,i can remeber sitting in lunch being so scared thinking what if they hit the center for disease control only miles from my house, what do we do then. and i remember thinking that it was only the beginning. many believed it was the end of the world. i went home and found my mom in her room she had turned on the tv as the first plane hit and had been watching it ever since. i asked what is going on and she said america is ready for war. this was the hardest part for me at this point i am thinking about all my friends, myself included that might be needed for the army and the marines. that day truely changed my life i went through every reaction you could have i was scared, lonely, crowded, and most of all angry. all i could think was who could do this to a group of innocent people. the emotions that i had that day were all at once and were very sobering and i thank god everyday for the people who died as well as the survivors. thank you for listening to my story.
Love (its better to have loved and lost than to have never have loved at all)
