I was in High School Chemistry class, I do not remember what grade as I do not heavily invest in memories. My teacher received a phone call and we could just tell something was amiss. She hung up and told us to stop what we were doing something was happening. Several minutes later the school activated its television based announcement system with a news feed showing. Not long into it we were shown one of the buildings collapse and told that planes had crashed into the buildings and that it may be the beginning of an assault on the U.S.. As twisted as it may seem, to my dark outlook, I watched the buildings fall said a quick blessing for those that were dead, dying, and/or injured. With a slow grin (not sure what emotion was behind it) starting on my face and I thought to myself we, as a country, have finally pushed someone too far I wonder who it is?.

I finished the rest of the school day in an altered state of focus thinking how strange it seemed to me that people were picking their children up while others left on their own and headed home panicked, as if thinking that our little rural school in the mountains of Northeast Georgia would be a target, while the remainder of us stayed. The rest of the day was quiet and the school had an almost ghostly feel from the emptiness.

I will say no more about what I now feel about it as many would not understand.

It truly was a sad day, not for me personally since I was in the the 3rd grade I guess. We watched it at home live when it happened, but then I didn't know what was going on, but..


Today, as i've seen the document called Zeitgeist movie 9/11, which tells alot about the U.S government being perversed and all and to be honest.. I do believe it was not a terrorist attack, no way.


No building which is designed to take a hit from a plane like that collapses just like that, and "Zeitgeist 9/11" does show the facts pretty well..

It was all just because they needed a reason to attack to iraq because of the oil.

I recommend all of you to watch it. It makes you hate the US government, atleast the bush government!

EDIT: Now I remember, ironically my granpas funeral was 9/11/10.

I managed a hotel that some of the bad guys stayed in. I spent the evening escorting the FBI as they searched rooms, took all our phone records, took our voicemail system computer, and interviewed guest, and more. It was a long day for me.

It started because a we were asked to submit a list of guests that paid cash for one night by local PD. I guess they cross-referenced with passanger manafests. The bad guys also paid cash for their tickets.

I was sitting in US. History class; 10th grade. I watched the 2nd plane hit live on TV.

I've always been a news buff, and so I'd been following the story since shortly after the first jet hit (I had a study hall, and then a computer class). When I went to history. we convinced our teacher to let the TV on, just with the sound off, and just teach the class. I watched the jet hit on a live feed. Class was over then.

Sept. 11th has played a large part in shaping my world. It is one of the major reasons I enlisted.
One of the Medics I deployed with was the first Paramedic on scene at Shanksville.

I try to judge every person on their individual actions, one of our interpretors was a great guy, and a good Muslim. I considered him a friend; but the reality is at the end of the day, Islam is a religion & government of war. There is no separation, it really is US or THEM.
