Hi My name is Elizabeth. September 11th changed our lives in so many ways. It made us look at things differently. On the morning of 9/11 I was in my second period Anatomy class at Winter Park High. When we were doing our work, this kid came back from the media center and said that a plane hit the wtc in New York. At first I didn’t know what was going on. It was total chaos. Then the substitute turned on the television and we saw the second plane hit the towers. I didn’t know what was going on. Then through all my classes we watched the news or listened to the radio. I was in shock and I didn’t know we were being attacked. Then the pentagon was hit and the flight in Pittsburgh. When I got home I turned on CNN. I was addicted to CNN for many months. After the shock, it hit me like a rock. I was crying and everything. Somedays were happy and the rest went down hill. Even if I didn’t lose anyone that I knew. I still felt like I did. I’ve Been to New York before. I was born in New Jersey. Well, that’s where I was on that day.United we Stand!!
