As we pay our respect's to the 9/11 victims..let us all remember and reflect what we did that day 10 years ago today. I was in class at job corp and when i got to my dorm, soooo soo many people were crying and telling other people they needed to go home because their mother/father died...and i remember this one girl she was black and very smart. I heard her tell someone on the phone that she was going to kill herself becuase now she has no one....now imagine a timid,shy girl(i was only 20 at that time)wanting to change her mind about doing something like that. I thought to myself, would she really do that. She's loud and i dont want that drama...so i asked her what she was doing and for that whole week i hung out with her and talked to her...i was her best friend that week. before that day i wouldn't even speak to her...in the hall or outside sure id say a few words but nothing else, she was too pretty to chill with..but anyway a week after that she told me about what happended to her life. She told me her dad was a firefighter that went on that call. she didn't have a mother...she was like i lost everyone and she talked to GOD and made him a deal. If someone interveined with whatever she was gonna do, she'd not take her own life, if I hadn't came up to her like i did..but i did so she joined the Army. And right now she is and everyone who's in the military, they are fighting for our freedom and our future. Have you lost someone on 9/11? a father, sibling,husband,soon-to-be-husband/wife? I want to know and pray with you, to find peace. I lost my ex boyfriend in that building.I was gonna marry him. It tore my soul from me when i got a call from his sister telling me he died...and a part of me died too. So many people died that day and they continue dying. Half-way accross the world they are perrishing.Its not just Americans im talking about. People are ppl and one cant judge other people the way they do. Im talking about other ppl that lost thier lives as well. sure some of them are messed up but we should remember them too! I know i will.

I did not lose anyone on that day, but I missed my opportunity to see the Twin Towers. My family and I were planning to go there someday, but the news of the attacks shattered my dreams. To make things worse, I was in my middle school class (6th grade language arts, possibly reading a short story) here in Tampa Bay Florida and I just moved from my native North Jersey, so close to the attacks, over two years before that day! But nevertheless, it made me a prouder American...

yea loosing someone to something like that is indeed not a good thing i'd like to remember nor forget..lol! it was indeed a close call, was it not?! it makes me proud to be free and not like those other ppl who dont have freedom. But if u really think about itmexicans could be misinterpred for muslims. I wore a scarf like those women do and I was being treated very harshly. It was for a costume for holloween last year...my tires got slashed,windows broken in..and when they found out who i really was..they apoligized and offered to pay for the damages they did to my car, which was nice of them. Im no one important but to them i was and that was all that mattered! which will be the last time i do something like that lol!!

I did not know anyone that left us that day but know many who were affected. I remember watching the scene being broadcast and like so many others, my thoughts were, "is this real as it seems like we are watching a scene from a movie and them my heart fell." I am so sorry and pray for peace too. Many good things happened that day as well and well God willing, will continue to. People came together, they landed their planes here like frightened stranded souls here. Now, I am happy and sad and when I see all the results of ten years, how things not only get rebuild but did get better and treasures are constructed in memory of the past, starting with a tear that fell down to the ground.

Hopefully this ten anniversary of 9/11 attack will make those in power in U.S to continue remain vigilant against terror threats and take these terrorists seriously without giving them more opportunity to hit America again in the future. It will continue to serve the nation well if politicians can be reminded every year of their responsibility toward theb people that elected them into office.
