Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No
Knew someone who perished?: No

i was in the fourth grade in pasadena texas. i was doing my work when all of the sudden people were crying and kids were leaving with their parents.and the rest of the kids were panicing and asking questions but no one would answer them then there was an anouncment on the inercom saying to go back to home room “emediately”(spelling)
and from home room we all were sent home ,still with no questions answered then when my mom picked me up she told me what had happened …i was speachless…i felt like i all the sudden couldnt breath… i passed out.
i had never been so horrified(sp) my mind was only on all the people that had died. the only thing i could do was cry,my mom cried with me.i cried to the point it made me sick(physicly sick)
that day was the biggest reality check of my life and the worlds also biggest reality check.that day we werent just human beings helping each other …we were the USA and we are still standing!
that day was also a good day because we realized that we were from differnet racis and religion and different backgrounds but that day we all came together helping each other out when needed,thats is what this country is based on. we will never forget that day i hope that we never will forget those lost and those who risked and lost their lives, to save the lives of others… ..remember 911.
love shelby,age 14
