I was listening to CNN news at home when the breaking news came on about the
first tower being hit. I was stunned and
sat in shock watching the plane hit the tower.
I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
It seemed so unreal, and I just sat there and stared at the television. I felt like I was in a stupor. Finally, I ran
into the bedroom where my husband was watching television and told him to watch
I went back to my television on the big screen and kept watching; still shocked. Then, a short time later, I saw the second tower hit. It finally hit me when the towers came down; this is really happening. A short while later, there was news of the pentagon being hit, and then a plane in rural
prevented from reaching its' destination by heroic passengers and crew members.

By the third day, I was becoming angry. I paced up and down in front of the TV ranting and marched into the bedroom to rant some more to my husband. I was so pissed that this had happened in our country. I wanted to reciprocate what they did to us even though it doesn't make sense to lower ourselves to their level. Yes, I was that mad.
Today, I'm still angry, especially, as I see Americans being beheaded by these fanatics. Religious wars go thousands of years back, and they have always been barbaric. I hope we can get through this period in history and still retain our humanity.
