From yesterday's act of terroism, I am still in shock. I feel terrible about what happen[happened] to all those innocent people working at the Trade Center and Pentagon, as well as the people aboard the hijacked planes. To the rescue workers who are missing or lost their lives trying to get people out of the Trade Center, are truly brave. Sitting at my apartment last night I got very angry watching what happened. Seeing that second plane hit the South tower was unreal. Watching people jump to their deaths was very disturbing. I've never seen anything like this before. People interviewed were saying it looked like a seen from an action movie.

I know that Americans should not feel this way, but I want to see the people who done this suffer. And from the speech President Bush made last night, he will go to no limits in finding out who did this and preparing an attack. I'm sure he has the support of the entire Congress as well as the whole nation.

And what the Hell is up with those children celebrating in Palestine!
