9/11-Now what?

September 11, 2001

I was sitting at my desk watching the news and working on math (for I was home schooled at the time). The next thing I know I hear my mom gasp and I look up asking what is it? She simply stared at the television and said, an air plane just crashed into the World Trade Center. Only being eleven years of age at the time, I didn't know what the World Trade Centers were. I got up from the desk and sat next to her while she explained everything to me. Of course everyone knows how the rest went. We sat and watched the news all day. My mom was making breakfast when I cried out that one of the towers fell. Even at that young age, something like that scared me. I feared for all my friends back and the private school I had been attending just the year before. Within a week after 9/11 I was back at school because I felt that's where I needed to be.

Now, five years later on September 11, my dad showed me the Loose Change Video. I refused to watch it at first fearing that it was just the headline news showing everything over again, but he assured me that it was more than what it seemed. So I watched it. Before this video, I was a Bush supporter, I was angry at the so-called "terrorists". After this video, I'm just happy that Bush is almost done with his second term. I'm not a Kerry supporter but I'm no longer for Bush either
