America Under Attack

             Tuesday morning started off just like any other normal morning. I had an early class so I had to be in school at 7:30 am. I was on my was to my second class when I over heard someone say something about the World Trade Center. I thought nothing of it and went into class. About half way into the class it is interrupted by another teacher. She tells everyone to gather there things because classes are canceled for the day. She told us the shocking news. “Planes were hijacked and flown into The World Trade Center and the Pentagon”. As I looked around the room at my classmates everyone looked so confused like they couldn’t comprehend what had happened. Who would ever think that such a normal day would turn into a day of fear and hopelessness for a large number of people. .
             President Bush states “They will discover what other’s in the past have learned: Those who make war against the United States have chosen there own destruction. I will not settle for a token act. Our response must be sweeping, sustained and effective”. The President warns everyone who wears a uniform to get ready.
             I am extremely concerned for the United States going into War. No one knows what will happen next. What if New York City becomes a target again? .
             The government of Pakistan has agreed to provide us with whatever assistance necessary. People fear the first War of the 21st century. It will be a long and costly war. Not only costly in terms of money but also in terms of human life. .
             Democratic Senator from New York States, “As New Yorkers there is a sense that we have been violated. That some horrible person has taken something away from us as a city”. .
             In the Past I felt safe going into Manhattan. I never would have thought something like this could happen to the United States. I feel my sense of security has been taken from me and my life as I’ve known it will change forever.
