It''s been 5 years since 9/11. Where were you when it happened? I remember that I was in 3rd grade and we were about to go out to recess but my teacher had said that a tragic accident had just happened and she explained what had happened. I didn''t understand it then but now it really upsets me now that I understand it.
This morning at church the service was about 9/11 and they sang one of my favorite songs. "Where were you when the world stopped turning?" By: Alan Jackson.

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
Out in the yard with your wife and children
Working on some stage in LA
Did you stand there in shock at the site of
That black smoke rising against that blue sky
Did you shout out in anger
In fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry

Did you weep for the children
Who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don''t know
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below

Did you burst out in pride
For the red white and blue
The heroes who died just doing what they do
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself to what really matters

I''m just a singer of simple songs
I''m not a real political man
I watch CNN but I''m not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
Teaching a class full of innocent children
Driving down some cold interstate
Did you feel guilty cause you''re a survivor
In a crowded room did you feel alone
Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her
Did you dust off that bible at home
Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened
Close your eyes and not go to sleep
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
Speak with some stranger on the street
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Go out and buy you a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie you''re watching
And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some stranger
Stand in line and give your own blood
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Thank God you had somebody to love

I''m just a singer of simple songs
I''m not a real political man
I watch CNN but I''m not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

I''m just a singer of simple songs
I''m not a real political man
I watch CNN but I''m not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

The greatest is love
The greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day

My dream is to be a writer! My role models are Eoin Colfer, J.K. Rowling, Christopher Paloni and Daniel Handler [Lemony Snicket.] I write storys for fun and think it''s great! I love to write! Writing is my life. When I have a bad day I''ll go home and lose myself in a book that I am writing or a book that someone else has wrote. My imagination is so wide and in order to make room for the so called "important stuff" like math, history and science [LOL] I have to write down my story''s on paper. Remember to always follow your dreams and maybe just maybe if you try hard enough they could come true!
Read my posts on here called "Dayz in a nutshell! Tell me what you think!!", "Dayz: Book 2" and "A new story I am writing!" Tell me what ya'' think! And there is also a story where you can add on to called "A story you can add on to." Check it out!

I was about 2 or 3 years old. I think we were getting ready for my sister's b-day. Her b-day is 9~11. She was born in 1995 though. She hates her b-day and I used to never know why until about 4rth grade

I was a few months old. I had actually been visiting NYC four days before 9/11 happened.

Welcome to my twisted world
I hope you enjoy your stay

My Story (Well, the way my mum explained it to Alanna, my BFF) __________________________________________________________________ I was only about 1, and my mum was pushing me in the pushchair and an old lady stopped her and said "Did you hear about the terrible accident?" and my mum just said "No" and the lady said "Oh it's horrible over in America". My mum taught she was going mad but she went inside switched on the TV and...you can guess what she saw ___________________________________________________________________ Alanna's Story ___________________________________________________________________ She was only around 2 years old when her big sister Alex was watching the TV. Suddenly the TV switched and Alex screamed and said "MOM! MOM! LOOK AT THIS!" ___________________________________________________________________
