Remembering the Day

Guest Writer

Hi all. katrock here. I was just on Google (http://www.google.com), and I found something that might be useful for the people that had a loved on one of the planes, the WTC or the Pentagon. It had a list of all the people that died. I was scrolling and I found someone very young young that died. The person was 21. My brother is 20, so it's weird seeing someone one year older than my brother die in the Pentagon.

It's kinda weird, but everyday it feels like the morning of September 11, 2001. Me waking up, walking into the kitchen, eating Froot Loops and watching CTV. I was just talking to my mom, wondering if there's gonna be another attack on 9/11. I think that there might be one. I'm not sure.

I was in 5th grade when it was September 11, 2001. Weird. I remember that day clearly. I might as well describe it. 7:21 am. September 11, 2001. I woke up and walked into the kitchen. My mom said to change it to CTV. So my brother changed it to CTV. Canada AM had just started, and they were talking about New York. Usually they don't talk much about NY. I was half-awake when I heard the simple words, "Today will change the world forever". I always hear that, and I didn't believe it until they showed a Boeing plane flying near the WTC, and then crashing. I said three words to show how shocked I was; "OH MY GOD". Just a little while later, at 7:41 am my time, they showed another plane crash into the other building. It was LIVE. Yes, LIVE. I couldn't believe it, before my very eyes, all those firefighters going into the WTC and never coming out.

At school that day, everybody was talking about it, and I thought there was going to be a World War 3. Luckily, so far there hasn't.

I gotta end this, 'cause I'm getting thirsty, but before I go here's the site with the list of the people that died: http://msnbc.com/modules/wtc/victims.

Your WTC reporter,

katrock =P
