Where were they when they hear the news? He was at the Kentucky army national guard helicopter hangar, in Frankfort Kentucky.

What were the feelings they had? At first he was confused, because it sounded like a small airplane accidently flew into one of the towers.Later on he heard that the second airplane hit the south tower, he had pure anger because he knew it was an attack. He had fear and angerous feelings as he knew war laid ahead. He knew he would be deploying soon.

How do they feel this has effected them? Biggest thing is that he didn't feel safe in the his own country.

How has these events effected our world? The whole world became different. Use to be able to just get on a plane and fly in it, the security was bumped up, more hate in the world than it used to be. The attacks unify us as a nation, and now it seems to divide us.

...in the aftermath, I attended an interfaith prayer meeting that left me in awe. And I know now that though there might be a few incidents no one is proud of, we have come a long way in the fight against bigotry.
