911DA Story: Story

I went to church at 8:00A.M. with my eigth grade class. We had a great mass that morning. On the way back to my homeroom I knew that something wasn't right. As we walked down the hall peopole were in a bustle. We reached our homeroom and sat down. Our teacher came in and told us to be quiet. I will never forget the look on her face as she turned on the T.V. Not 30 second after she turned it on the 2nd plane crashed in the tower. We were all astonished. People started crying, gasped in horror, and my teacher was sobbing. Her cell phone rang and she said it was her daughter calling from college to tell her she loved her and discuss what was happening. We then went bck to church for a prayer service. After school that day I was petrified of another attack. Having the Arch here and all. I prayed and prayed for God to protect us, and my prayers were answered.
