on 9/11 i woke up to find my mother telling me to get out of bed, and get ready for school. I got up and put on my clothes, brushed my teeth and sat on the couch. my mother was watching telivision so i sat down to see what was on. when i looked at the t.v. i could not believe what was happening. The news said that one of the the world trade towers had been struck by a plan. I saw that the tower was burning but i thought that it would probably stop. I went to school and all the kids were talking about it. my principle made an announcment that we could watch five minutes of the telivision every period. By third period we turned on the t.v. and found out that the second world trade tower had been struck by another jet. I could not believe it. I think that it was fourth or fith period when i found out that both of the towers had fallen and that thousands of people had died. it is now one 9//11..02 on the day that the trade towers were hit and i can still remeber every part of what had happened
