How did you witness history on September 11th?

I was on the way to school with my Dad when we herd what happened. Our first initial thought was some idiot flew into the buildning. But soon after i found out in my art class that another plane flew into the second building then my thoughts got serious and i was thinkin about all the people who were in and around the buildings. just hopeing that no bad would come of it. This was something that i will never ever forget because it affected me like it did everyone else in this country. And i want to thank those courageous men and women who save all those lives. Thank you and God bless you
