I was really little and had no clue what was going on... That day I was sitting in my room playing with my toys... I love this song so much but it makes me wanna cry
I sat in my truck at work and cryed I thought the world was gona end , but it didnt
I was in the 9th grade when it happen. Teacher turned it on, and we watched in horror as the second tower was strucked by the plane. Still remember as if it was yesterday. This year I visited one world trade center and the memorial. If you haven't been its absolutely wonderful.
Makes me cry, and love those who fight for the red, white, and blue even more

Just turned on to Hermiston Ave and I heard it on the radio. I couldn't believe it. For a moment I thought it was a prank, then it sunk in. May those to were killed rest in peace and may their killers rot in hell.
Love this song it has such a great meaning behind it... that day was an awful day and no one will ever forget it, young or old.
i was little and scared and a few years later i learned that my school principals parents died in the first tower and he went to the blockcade by the towers and cried i thought that i had a big problem but then realized he had it way worse than me god bless the first responders
I was 10 year old and in school and my teacher brother call her and told her what happen and she told us and we all started crying in school to
P.S this is THE MOST TOUCHING song ever :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( R.I.P. to all that died doing what they did. Because of this, when I'm older i wanna join the N.Y.P.D.
I was 1-3 i remember coming home fron pre-K (half days so got home at noon) and my parents were watching the news sobbing.
I was in 2nd grade an I still remember calling my mom an dad I loved them cuz I was home alone wit my brother's.
I remember going to a doctors appointment. My mom waa driving me I was 5. My dad called her on the phone and said wat happened. She pulled over and cryed for about 25 min. My friends cousin died in 9/11. God bless all soldiers that recognize this in your heart and fight for us. Loooove home of the free and the brave!! :))

I was in 3rd grade at recess. & my teacher made us come in & she turned on the TV. I didn't understand then what was going on. But eventually I figured it all out.
I was in first grade. When I went home from school my mom sent me downstairs to play so that she could watch the news and not have me see it. She told me not to watch the news, but I went downstairs to play and watched despite that. I don't remember how much I understood but I remember knowing that this was going to lead to something really bad.
I was just a little kid. All I knew was there was a bunch of people that had died. I cried. Now that I learn about it every year, this song is the most touching song that could have been made for that event. I was told that Alan Jackson heard about 9/11 and sat down and wrote this song in 20 minutes. When he sang it for the first time on stage, people were so moved that they stood up and clapped for about five full minutes.
I was having breakfast and getting ready for school. I was about to change the channel when I noticed that the towers were smoking. I called my mother in and that's when the second plane crashed. I even remember the meal, eggs and toast. It was that significant in my life. God bless America. We will never forget that horrible day.
I was in first grade art class when it happened. They turned on the t.v and I remember watching it and not really understand until my teacher explained it to us.
No one will ever forget 9. 11. 01! Sad, scary, all those that suffered and passed away. Never forget
Thank god for the people who died for our lives
I was three and half but I swear I remember that day. God bless America and the ones lost that day.

cattle1997
This song kept us all up. It gave us something to hold on to
God bless 911 <3
I feel really bad for all of those people that did not make it. I was not even born yet but I can tell what it felt like I love alan Jackson. If you like this on listen to God bless the USA by Lee Greenwood it is really good to.
I was 6 years old at home scared to death I was gonna die from some evil people called Muslims.
Amazing song!!!
I was in Tha 4th grade

This song is SO special. It describes perfectly what it was like that day and in the days after. I was sobbing my heart out the first time I heard this song. It's like a piece of our history and I hope it becomes a classic so Americans will never forget what happened that day (like Pearl harbor).
I was just a baby and woke up when the first one went in
