    Washington, Indiana I was 13 years old and late for history class. When I walked in, no one noticed because they were all focused on the television. My teacher didn’t say a single word to me–he too was glued to the television. I slid into the seat beside my friend, Jordan, and I still feel stupid for asking, “What movie are we watching?” He was just wordless for a minute and said, “It’s not a movie.” I watched the footage in silence with my class, and I remember holding hands with a girl who had bullied me. We were both crying–that day is still just a fog of sorrow in my mind. What I recall most is my cousin telling me he was going into the Marines, inspired by the heroes of 9/11 and what happened that day. I, like many others I think, changed the way they thought on that day. How we thought about the world and our own safety and our country.

    Amanda was at home and turned on the TV to watch the eleven o’clock news. She heard someone on her porch. Thinking it was her fiancé, she opened the front door. On her porch was a strange man who demanded she let him in the house. When she refused, he pulled out a gun. Amanda, fearful of her life, let him in. Once inside, he searched the house for valuables, took her engagement ring and cash from a drawer. He then left the house
    Has this man committed common law burglary?
    What result if the incident took place at 3:00 p.m. not 11:00 p.m.?
    Curtis was drunk when he decided to drive from the bar to his home outside of town. On his way out of town, Curtis flung his lit cigarette butt out the window of his vehicle. The cigarette caused a huge forest fire that destroyed many homes. The fire was finally put out by a heavy storm three days later.
    Can Curtis be convicted of arson?
    Nicolena hated her next-door neighbor. Plotting to burn down the neighbor’s house (so that he would move away), Nicolena planted an explosive device on the wall of the neighbor’s home. The plan was that device would explode, and the house would then catch fire and burn down. The device was set off and it did explode. It caused extensive damage, but it did not actually cause anything to catch fire.
    Can Nicolena be found guilty of arson?
    Is there any other crime for which she could be prosecuted?

    Scotland I was 9 years old and had just finished basketball practice at school and my teacher told me. I had no idea what was going on, but remember being overwhelmed both by the coverage it recieved on the news, and by the patriotism and support witnessed among the American citizens. God bless.

    I was 8 years old at the time. I do not remember much about what happened that day, and I did not fully understood what happened then, but I remember being with my family at Bellingham Washington. My parents were staring the screen speechless, my mom looked horrified. I was afraid terrorists would come after me. I remember my 10 year old brother saying “calm down. it’s not like it is going to happen to us”, I guess since we are from Canada. I kind of remember the atmosphere of that era. When my parents were planning to go back to Washington, I would always ask “is it safe to go back”?

    Houston, Texas I was at school, in my first grade classroom in Houston Texas. My teacher got a phone call and began to cry, and she went over and turned on the TV. Living in Houston, my mother thought that they would attack the Oil/Gas industry. Here, and she pulled me out of school for 2 days. I remember seeing live stream of the events on the news, and being horrified by the experience.

    Texas I was in school. I was in second grade at that time. I remember my mom dropping me off at school and just being there for a little while. A little over an hour my mom was there to pick me up. When we were walking out we have to walk by the library. They had T.Vs on and a lot of the older students were around it. My mom brought me home and called my dad. I live really close to the boarder and were Texan so my dad has a lot of guns. I remember my mom scrambling to get all of our guns and ammo out for my dad when he got home. They told us they might come up from Mexico and we were under attack and to be prepared. I just remember being terrified.

    Norristown, PA I was on the bus heading to school when the first plane slammed into the World Trade Center. I had no idea what had happened in New York and Washington during the entire school day. Business was usual and assumed the principal wanted to keep the news away from the students. It wasn’t until I got home when I found out about the attacks. My dad met me at the bus stop and he told me the World Trade Center in New York fell down today. I was like “whaaattttttt?????” and I thought it was one tower. He responded no “both towers.” I was confused at first because I thought something at that scale is impossible but my dad turned on the TV when I returned home and the rest is history. It took me some time over the next few days to process what had happened

    I was 10 years old and in the fifth grade, and I heard nothing about it at school. The first signs that something was up was when I heard some people talking instead of oldies on the radio, on the bus home. I went home, and either I was watching a cartoon and the news report came on from WPIX-TV in New York or the report was on the whole time. Only then was I aware of the terrorist attacks. Things have gotten more real and more serious to me as I got older.

    I was at home (work at home) and my exhusband was at work teaching. One of his friends called and asked for him and I told the friend my husband was at work. It was a beautiful, warm sunny day here, just like in NYC. We were planning on going for bike ride when he got home from work. One of his friends called and told me to turn on the tv, the planes had hit the WTC. By that time, both towers were on fire and I thought, Oh wow, I hope everyone got out. I thought how bizarre it was, the towers burning against the brilliant blue sky. I remember how quiet it seemed when air traffic stopped, because there are always planes flying over. We’re not too far from the airport. It just seemed like the world had stopped, it was so quiet.

The real life history of observing world wide corruption a baby boomer geek raised in the federal govt defense dept projects/state dept/arts & sciences/3 years of boring law school with the usa justice dept/pro-member usa Olympics educator to do the international law relations etc policy. Obviously I always was a whistle blower to those refusing to play by the rules-I would tell people to their face after I observed their words and actions. I respect monarch parliamentary procedure the commonwealth European union nato members. My rights end where another person’s begin and vice versa. My resume looks like swiss cheese as a result of my hope faith and charity. Obviously I should use my business administration accounting skills and apply for a job with the IRS civil and criminal procedure the veterans hospitals the cdc they might not even be taking applications. On 9/11 I was at the dentist office only client that morning. I very calmly said I wonder if this is on purpose again went home turned on the tv saw all 4 of those civilian airplanes going exactly via east side of Canada to 1st tower horror realty show then plane #2 in the other tower our businesses. #3 the Pentagon D.C. #4 never made it to Philly Pa-thank God the passengers attacked those guys that killed the employees on that plane and had time to say good bye to family friends business associates. I do not call them terrorists over used word. I call them paid mercenaries trying to lower the worlds population the wrong way

    Washington State I was 12 and in Washington State at the time. I remember my parents were just starting to get up and get ready to go to work. My Dad started yelling “we’re under attack!” My parents decided to have me stay home from school that day. Growing up in WA State, and never having been to the East Coast I didn’t know too much about the World Trade Center. That day I became more aware of the world.

    I worked in the twin towers for many years and I remember that morning like it was yesterday. I had woken up early to prepare all my files and papers for a meeting there at noon that same day. I remember waking up my two children at what must have been around 7am and getting them ready for the day. I also seem to remember my high school teacher husband leaving later than usual that morning which must have been around 8am. Around that same time, I left the house to drop my eldest son, then 6, off to school and then I took my youngest, then 3, off to her nursery. I was about 7 months pregnant at the time and I remember rushing to make my hospital appointment. I had had several problems with my last child during pregnancy and was taking no chances. I was sceduled for an ultrasound and some other tests at around 9:30am. The appointment should only have lasted an hour or so, allowing me to get to my meeting in the north tower at

    England I was in school, and my music teacher had left half way through class. It turned out her husband was in one of the towers. We all got called into the main hall because many teachers had left to call loved ones in new york, so we watched the news on the tv. I didn’t really understand and I remember my brother trying to explain what was happening but I just wanted school to let us go home.
