NMAH Story: Story

I witnessed the attacks by listening in on the radio as the first planes hit the buildings in New York City. I was in my English class in 10th grade at Jenks High School in oklahoma.. and we heard about the attacks from another teacher, and turned on the radio.. b/c we did not have a tv in our room at that time. i heard about the second plane hitting the south tower, and then i heard about the collapses.. and sat in awe at what had happened. As this was going on i was taking notes on a sheet of paper, about where i was and what i was doing. It is very helpfull now

NMAH Story: Life Changed

i think the events have changed my life because they make me vaule my loved ones even more, and to become less trusting, and realize how fragile life is. Nobody I know was directly affected by the terroist attacks, so this has not changed my life drastically. But I do know "of" friends that have been afffected, or has known someone who
was affected by the horrific attacks of 9/11. This was a horrible event and as everybody says, this will always be remember. No matter if you know someone who was lost, or just heard about the event.

NMAH Story: Remembered

I think that we should always remember, what we stand for as americans. We should value everything we are, and that we live in peace and our country is one of Greatness.. and has over come the tragic attacks of 9/11. Eventually i believe that the consequenses of this attack will become a peace of life everyday, learning to be more cautious and working together to make a safer community not only for us, but for our children and the others around us.
