  "Angry about attacks"
Updated 12 October 2001, 16.10
Attack on the Pentagon
Millie, 15, writes from Washington DC about her thoughts on the 11 September attacks.

I'm at school at the Mersersburg academy - it's one hour 30 minutes from Washington DC and about three hours from Pittsburgh.

I come from Leytonsville in Maryland just outside DC.

I discovered what had happened from teachers who called a school meeting. I have two uncles who work one block away from the Pentagon. It took about four hours for me to find out they were OK.

I'm very confused and angry but I think Bush should wait and make sure he knows who is behind the attacks before the US takes action.

Quite a few of my friends come from Boston and were really worried they might have relatives on the flight. Luckily everyone seems to be OK.

My school has a TV room - it's on all day and students keep on popping in to check on developments.

I can't believe that someone could do this to the US and kill so many people.

I've visited the Pentagon and the twin towers and am shocked that such a landmark could be hit like that.
