1: dear diary, today was a normal day, woke up, had breakfast, and went to school, it wasn't until a few hours later we heard the explosive nosies coming from outside. We all were curious as to what had happened but the principal came by and told us to get back to our studying, so we did but a little while after,
2: THE BIG APPLE | parents started arriving to pick there kids up, one by one the classroom was getting empty, the kids always asking, "why am i going home, what happened?" but the parents only replies were, "I'll tell you when we get home." I thought my parents were never going to come but then my mother came in crying, i asked "Mom, whats wrong?" but also, her only reply was; "I'll tell you when we get home. Curiosity was killing me by the time we
3: got home. But i noticed on the way home there was ash and papers everywhere in the streets but i figured we'd see when we watched the news tonight, When we got inside my parents sat me down and told me that some crazy terrorist guys crashed two planes right into our twin towers. I didn't understand why they did it but then they told me that Aunt Susie was working that day and was killed.
4: I was so upset, she was the Aunt that was closest to me, In fact earlier in the week i had lunch with her and she took me shopping, i was so happy when i got to spend time with her. I just wish i could of said goodbye. But it made me wonder why this disaster happened to us? What did my Aunt do to deserve to die?
5: I figured I'd just ask god, it was Friday and we had church on Sunday. I pray every night before i go to bed so i prayed tonight and I'll pray tomorrow and we'll probably talk about it in church on Sunday. Goodnight.
6: Dear diary, today we started talking about my Aunts funeral arrangements. We decided to do a traditional Catholic funeral. So we have to burn a candle during the wake put a small cross or rosary with a cross on it in her hand, have her body and casket sprinkled with holy water and her feet have to face the alter.
7: Its a lot to remember but we'll make the funeral work. We all loved my Aunt and thats what she wanted.
8: Dear diary, i guess theres always light out of the dark, my sister announced that her boy friend proposed today, she also said she wanted me to help her plan it so i can learn some new things about Catholic weddings.
