9/11

On that day I was in Canada getting out my lessons when my Mom came in and told me that planes had hit the twin towers. I was in disbelief. I saw it on the news. I just prayed for all those people. I will never forget... Ever. And I'm furious that now they wanna build a mosque there. After what happened?? TAKE YOUR MOSQUE ELSEWHERE!! How can you even think of putting something like that there after what happened?? That should be a memorial place with a great big plaque with all the names of who were lost there and the names of all the firemen who were lost and the names of the firemen who were there and were our heros. And at the bottom of it in big letters should be "WE WILL NEVER FORGET..."

Please comment below on where you were and what you saw and what you felt on that day.
