RC Story: Story

I was in school, and I remember the principal announcing that every class turn on the T.V. He then went on to say that the 1st tower had been hit by a plane. Everyone was in total shock. I was watching the news, when all of a sudden my classmates and I saw the second plane hit. We were in complete shock. A few Air Force jets flew over our school, sending us into total panic. We all thought we were all going to be under attack. Some of us were crying, while others just sat and stared blankly at the television. This whole thing just seemed unreal. I called my parents and they came and got me from school. We spent the reat of the day praying and watching the news.

RC Story: Response

People in my community were very shaken by this tragic event. I helped local churches set-up special prayer services; and every morning some of my fellow peers and I would gather around the school's flag pole, join hands, and pray for America, and all the families that were suffering, and the victims of 9/11.
