Thoughts And Prayers About the Recent DisastersOn The East Coast

“My prayers are definitely with the family and friends of the victims in last week’s tragedy. I’m really trying to look at the positive side of things¿the pride in our country has been restored, and my faith in God has become even stronger.”¿C.J. Hobgood

“I was asleep in my bed when my friend called me. I saw the second plane hit and I just tripped out. I thought it was fake at first. It hasn’t really affected me too much¿I’m not scared to travel. It’ll probably affect me in the future, I mean, it’s only been a week since it happened.”¿Mike Morrissey

“I was at home and Jeremy Heit called me and woke me up. I saw the second tower get hit live. Just tripped out, you know? I was stunned like, ‘Holy shit! Is this happening?’ It’s a really sad situation that there’s these radicals who want to do that stuff. It’s cool to be Muslim and all that, but to go that radical against innocent people? I mean, they were just going to work and doing their everyday life and then some terrorist f¿ks blew their ass up. Sad shit.”¿Jason Bennett

“I was at home and I got a phone call from a friend at six in the morning who told me about it. I watched the second building get hit live. I couldn’t believe my eyes, so I called up all my friends to let ’em know about it. It’s f¿ked up. My response is that we’re not safe anymore¿we gotta watch our backs and not trust anyone. Get your gas masks and your weapons. Get some gasoline and some canned foods. I think this has brought a lot of Americans together, though. A lotta pride’s comin’ out. Watch your back, boys.”¿Jeremy Heit

“On the morning of the terrorism I was at my house in Mission Beach, California. My roommate Bubby woke me up at 6:30 a.m. and told me the World Trade Center was bombed and the Pentagon. I didn’t believe him, so I put my head down and went back to sleep. Half a minute, later I realized something had to be wrong because he’s never up that early on a weekday. I couldn’t believe it when I saw what was happening, I truely thought the world was over. Then when I saw the unity of our country, I knew we’d be back in full force soon enough, and stronger than ever. America lives on!”¿Pat Towersey
