Where were you when the world changed?

The date is September 11 2001 the time is 8:46 am where were

you? This is the day that two planes were attacked and were flown into

the World Trade Center and caused millions of people deaths and many

family’s suffering.By 9:00am the world was in an uproar.

September 11 2001 changed us all in one way or another.

It changed the way we will think for many years to come.

The day after the planes hit the towers the world stopped turning and

everything came to a screaming hult.Airports and bus stations closed.

Schools were not the same from that day on.Both began

searching bags and purses much more Airports felt that anything that

could over power a person was something that did not belong on a

plane.Some examples of these were nailclippers,lighters,pocket knives

even shampoo is not allowed on a plane now.

Everyone became worried about flying, taking a bus or even

riding a boat because of the fear of terrorists attacking us once again.

Since this event occurred I remember to live day by day. I have learned

that you never know what can happen from one moment to the next.

You also never know what will happen from one day to the next.

I am 21 years old now and it’s been six years and that day will

always live in my memory for ever and always. Years from now I will

have to explain to my children what September 11 was and what

happened that tragic day.

The day those two planes hit the trade centers was the day the

world stopped turning and life as we knew it changed forever.
