I woke up and did all the usual stuff I usually do when waking up before going to school. I flicked on the T.V. like I usually do to look at the weather and other intresting things. I turned it on and saw the World Trade Center, On fire. I didn’t know a plane had even crashed into it. I thought the fire would end or something so it wasn’t much of a biggie with me. I changed the channel and there it was again. The World Trade Center, On fire. So, I decided to watch. After about 5 minutes of watching I saw a horrific picture, a plane full of human beings, Crashing into the WTC full of people. I just sat there, stunned at what I just saw. I thought about it the whole time I went to school. I thought it wasn’t true or it had been a fake or something. I couldn’t beleive my eyes. When I got to school, It was no fake. It was true. The Principal and all the teachers in the school were talking about it. After lunch break, The towers had collapsed. I was shocked, so many people died. When I got home I turned on the T.V. Immediatly and saw the shocking horror of people jumping out windows and more people being carried out in stretchers. I couldn’t beleive it. It actually happened. That will be a day I never forget. Those images will stay in my memory for as long as I live. I will never forget.
