9/11 – 10 years later

The view of Manhattan, NY done on a scratch paper with a match.

By Sabreena

As we all know, ten years ago today, an incident that changed New York forever. 9/11 as the day we see it. September 11, 2001, 8:46 am, Flight 11 of American Airlines crashes into the North building of the World Trade Center. 9:03 am, United Airlines Flight 77 hits the South Tower.

From where I live, I can view some of the building of Manhattan. For example the Chrysler Building, The Empire State Building, and The World Trade Center (ten years ago). I was in the third grade. I can’t remember much, but some things I can’t forget about that day. The lunch period just started as I was eating in the cafeteria when all of a sudden the teachers came down to take their classes back up into the classrooms. When my class went back to our room,

Kitty Damage


This is him sleeping normally

This is how he sleeps sometimes.

This is how he sleeps.

Just two days ago, I tried to take a picture of my kitten sleeping in a funny position. I ran to get my camera, turned it on, and saw the screen wasn’t working. I thought it was the batteries. Then I realized what really happened. Last week, my kitten was very hyper and jumped all over the place. He threw all of my items from the table to the floor. I still have some papers missing. I found the camera behind the computer table. It looked fine to me, so I put it back on my table and proceeded to do my work.

I haven’t checked the camera in a week. Just when I needed it for something, I see the screen is cracked. And when you turn it on,  you can tell how broken the screen is. I was in fury. I didn’t know what to do. It was my favorite, and only camera. And i actually made sure nothing happened to it for the past 3 years.

I didn’t know such a small kitten can cause such damage. I yelled at my kitten, but there’s no point because he obviously doesn’t understand me. All my kitten can understand is “food”. He has definitely ruined many things, but not as much as he broke the camera. Hopefully I get a new camera, and this time, I am putting it in a place where my kitten can never touch it. I have also need to clean the table which he destroys everyday in his morning sugar rush. After a good nap he is good to go. Go on a new adventure everyday, and mess up more of my things. But after all, he is only four months old, still a kitten, and who wakes me up every morning, at least half an hour before my alarm rings just so i would play with him.

Hurricane Irene’s Effects

Tree broken from the roots

Tree broken and cut up

By Sabreena

When I was walking by my college one day, I looked across the street and saw this. A tree was pulled from the ground and took its roots along with it. The winds must have been pretty strong to bring this tree down. When you look closely,  you can see how big the roots are and how far it was pulled out.  The tree was was later cut into small pieces and moved so it doesn’t get in the way of the street and the side walk.

Later when I visited the same place a few hours later, the tree was gone. Good thing I took a picture before they removed it.
