September 11th (Superman) Letter


April, 2002

Dear Engine 7, Ladder 1,

The day of September 11th was any normal day, the same old things happening until I went to Social Studies class around 9:30. I heard that the Twin towers were hit by planes killing many people.

When I heard about it many things were going through my mind. I was more scared than anything else. I had something to worry dad was down there that day. I was wondering why would someone do that to these innocent people? I was starting to get scared about the outside world and what might happen when I went outside.

Six months later I feel like our world is going to come to an end. I respect and love my family members and family a lot more. I realize that they are not always going to be there. The progress of the Twin Towers is going well, they are almost cleaned up but they are still finding bodies.

Your movie 9/11 made me realize that firefighters do a lot for our world. I started to care more about the world and everything going on around me. I felt more secure about stepping out into the world after seeing your movie.

Those are my thoughts and regards about the September 11th tragedy. I want to thank you for not running away from this tragedy. You were a great way of showing us kids that we should care about others.
