re: Where were you?
Getting ready for school (I was in 7th grade and we started at 8:50) and saw the second plane hit live. Then we watched it unfold on TV at school all day and watched the towers collapse.

I’m glad I couldn’t see it. Still can’t watch it today.

re: Where were you?
I seem to recall seeing that celebration also. But I have been more upset by the decision that the footage of the event, including the people jumping out of the burning buildings, was too disturbing to show to the public. I think that that recording should be mandatory viewing for every high school class in America. With that, the young people would understand why us old folks say Never Forget.

re: Where were you?
I slept through it. Didn't find out until like 2 days later. I lived like a rock star back then.
I remember a few gas stations randomly shutting down like a week before. They were busy places that suddenly shut down. They knew it was coming.

re: Where were you?
Hanging some siding on a side job for my uncle...I was the only person there.

Listening to 98.1 and I'll never forget that right in the middle of More Than a Feeling, the feed cut off and the news came on.

Sat in my truck for a good 45 minutes listening to the news with a thousand yard stare before I finally started the engine and went home to see the devastation on TV.

Google: Five Dancing Israelies on 9/11

They weren’t Muslim. They were Israeli Mossad. They were arrested and released, despite evidence they were also going to blow a tunnel. They had cameras set up and filmed the 9/11 attacks. How did they know about it in advance?

I've closely looked into this and it is complete horse shite. You are spouting lies.

After the first news reports I couldn't stay away from the conference room TV.

The footage of them being interviewed on Israeli TV, the eyewitness account being told on US MSM, and the several MSM articles detailing it would say you are the one full of shite.

Sending a fax at the exact minute the second plane hit. I kept the confirmation page as a morbid souvenir.

re: Where were you?
I took the day off school to take my Yamaha R6 I had to a place In Tupelo, MS to get painted and have the graphics put back on.

I heard on the radio about a small plane hitting the north tower. I looked up and saw this maple tree on side of the road. I don’t know why that stuck but I think about 9/11 every time I pass that Maple tree on that road to this day.

Today. Just today. Let’s just try to remember. And be at peace with each other. Just today, let’s just let this kind of stuff go.

Tomorrow we can go back to our corners - because we are a family, and all families bicker. All families have differences.

But for today, can’t we just mourn what we’ve lost, and honor the memories of those who didn’t come home from work that morning by focusing on what’s really important. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Peace y’all. Just peace.

Was sleeping and my mother woke me up and told me to turn on the TV. Saw the second plane hit a few minutes later. Crazy

re: Where were you?
I was driving to work at Compaq when the first plane hit. My boss’s staff meeting was first thing that morning and he had no idea what was happening. The rest of us sat through that meeting on pins and needles, not even paying attention to what ever was being covered.

As soon as the meeting ended I raced back to my office in the software test lab. We tested internet software so we were one of the only groups who had broad band internet at the time. I walked in to the lab and it was PACKED with people huddled around the two 36” TVs we had. Directors, managers and even a VP were staring in disbelief as the towers fell.

Without really thinking about the risk of the move I said aloud “anyone from my team that wants to leave to go be with their families can do so now”

There was silence, the a VP walked up to me and said, “can I borrow your computer?” He sat at my desk and sent out a company wide email saying go home today if you need to.

We did.

re: Where were you?
Second week of my freshman year of college. Was walking out of the communal shower when I saw my buddy down the hall standing outside of his room. "A plane just flew into the world trade center!" was all he said. He looked more confused than anything.

I rather jokingly said, "damn I guess the terrorists finally got it".

To this point, I had no idea what was going on. Then I turn on the tv in my room. Roommate was still asleep. It was still before the second one hit. I was so confused when the second one hit. Like, damn are they just trying to show what the first one was like? Then the news people started losing their shite on air. it was that surreal seeing it happen live.

The rest of that day was very very tense on campus. The RA's even held a building wide meeting later that day out front.

"If you are dark skinned or from the middle east and you dont feel safe please stay in your room until we know more"

My stupid/ignorant/ive watched too many damn HBO specials on Terrorism (93 WTC bombing, lockerbie, OKC, etc) comment to my buddy and the RA's comment to us are the only two quotes seared into my memory from that day.

Lot of sadness, lot of friends who were trying to get a hold of family in the city, all that I remember. but it was all feelings. and relief when they found out someone missed a subway or yeah no they are upstate or yeah dad wasnt flying today. Those feelings Ill never forget. The dread on friends faces ill never forget. texting was still in its infancy. The phone circuits were overloaded. no Facebook, no twitter, and if you werent on wifi on a really pricey laptop you can forget about email. Communication was very difficult that morning. and that made the emotion that much worse.

But what was said? Just those two. A joke and a cold reality check when the world changed forever in America.

God Bless America and all the brave men and women who responded in that moment on that day.

re: Where were you?

On a business trip to the San Fran area. Me and 2 of my coworkers were stuck there until early Sunday morning when the airports opened back up.

The company covered all of our costs, and we got to keep the rental car, so we toured northern California the whole week.
