Gosh,is really sad what we heard.Some terrorist attacked New York and the Pentagon.
How old were you on September 11, 2001?
I was three years old when that happened.
When did you first learn about the attacks and who explained the events to you?
My mom I guess told me what happened,I didn't get it so I kept asking her until I got it.
What kind of impact did these attacks have on your life or your parents lives?
I don't know,be more secure when people are going to attack U.S.A,but Osama Bin Landen is dead already.What was the issue with this game?
The twin towers got attacked 
How do you feel about it?
I feel bad for the people in the Twin Towers,they have to die:(
What is the problem with portraying on such an awful violent event through a video game?
The dead people in there,blood I guess.
How can you make sure that your web games tell the whole
story or teach a lesson in an 

honorable way?
We can make a game honoring the Twin Towers,have the people who saved us.

iPad for Kids

Wow.That Fayette school is lucky!!!:( They get iPads instead of papers and pencils.Well,the advanteges of using an iPad is that they don't have to use pencils to write so much.They won't get bored of seeing the board,they can have some fun USING THE iPAD,WHILE WE USE PAPER AND PENCILS!!There hands won't hurt as there using the iPad,they don't have to waste trees and there dogs won't eat their iPads.But the disadvanteges is that an accident will happen to their iPads,they'll break it,it can get lost also they can get eye problems and cause them to get glasses.

Blogging about Blogging

If I were at a school that blogging weren't allowed,I'll convinced them that they should let us blog because that will help us type easily,and Blogger helps us check our spelling.The disadvantages I'll tell them are I don't know.That's what I think.
