    9/11

    Hey, just wondered how everyone was dealing with today, September 11th; 9/11?

    I live in America, so it's a very somber day. No one I knew was on any of the planes nor in the World Trade Center or Pentagon, thank goodness. Sadly, I'm guessing that's not the case for everyone here.

    I was in Math class in my first year of Middle School when it all started, but I didn't find out until that afternoon. The images on TV of planes exploding and buildings falling were so completly odd and sureal, I didn't know what to make of them. Later on I was more able to comprehend it and I felt like crying, but annoyingly enough, being an average American boy, I couldn't, which made me even sadder.

    We talked a bit about it in History class today and our teacher said it's our generation's defining moment, sort of how WWII was for people of that time. He said it's going to be weird in about 30 years when kids learn about 9/11 in school and see it as just another boring event and date; that's sort of the nature of the beast.

    What are everyone's thoughts and emotions?

    i remember it was my first year at a private school and were were in Bible Class but our room was being used for something and we had to have class in the gym. well our principle came in and said the WTC just got bombed. we brought 5 TVs into the gym and the whole school was their. while we were watching, the 2nd tower got hit so i saw it live. it was a very scary moment. the worst part is, the very same day the planes were back in the air, we were on a flight to Florida for a cruise

    thats odd when i was at school in 5th grade all the teachers kept it a secret from the whole school and they did a good job too lol...plus we had a bomb scare...anyways, at school today, we had 3 moments of silence, one in the morning at like 8:00 when the annaouncements were on, one at 9:59 and one at 10:27 or whenever the towers were hit...other than that, today, at school was a pretty normal day except for history class...after school i didnt c too many ppl not too much was going on

    yeah us in colorado just got a bunch of hail. and some kid got into a fight and got his @$$ whooped by a freshman.

    some kid tried to get everybody in the school to skip that day, to create a "national holiday" so we can get the day off every year. that was stupid.

    its prety sad acutally =[

    My story:
    3rd grade, September 10th: my friend: "richard richard! were getting bombed!! were getting bombed! check the radio! check the news! its everywhere!" i check nothing and relizes she was joking
    September 11th: nothing mentioned at school, i dont believe my friend again, then she turned on my TV and i just saw people talking and then saw a video of the second plane i think, thats all i remember from watching the news, next day in school we had a moment of silence

    yah the whole friend thing is the scariest thing in the world..im serious it happened

    yeah my mom was watching the smoking building and then saw a second plane crash.


    man that must have been confusing/scary.


    i was in sixth grade, havent even woken up for school yet and my brother was telling me and i said "yeah yeah, two planes crashed into a building.... so what? the building was in the way and they were bad pilots. now let me go back to sleep."

    then i found out they were terrorists. ooh!!! i clearly remember my friend telling me "i bet you its those DAMN RUSSIANS!!"

    yeah.. it wasnt.

    where am i going with this?
