I was sleeping as well... sadly, my mom was outside watering plants, when our 12-year old (at that time) neighbor came running outside and told her that there was an explosion on TV. I eventually got out of bed and saw that she was sitting in front of the TV with my sis and dad. I just remmeber not understanding the true depth of what was going on... I was eleven years old.

I was working at the hospital, here in South Carolina, when a fellow employee
told me she had heard about it on the television set in the lobby. My boss
invited me to join him and watch some of the news coverage on the TV set
in the doctor's lounge (which was empty at the time). It was one of the
three most shocking world events that have happened in my lifetime (and
I can remember where I was during each of them): the assassination of
President Kennedy (Nov. 22, 1963), the explosiion of the Challenger space
shuttle, and the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on
Sept. 11, 2001. You never forget things like that (and you just pray that they never happen again).

Yes, I was at work and all of a sudden our boss came out of his office and said a plane hit the world trade center. We all gathered in his office to watch then we saw the other plane hit. People we crying and very confused and upset about this. I was in shock and couldn't believe what I was seeing. I remember a co-worker asked me if I was ok and I just shook my head no. We were all very shocked.

I'll never forget it.

I had a migraine headache that morning and had to stay home from work.
I was dozing in and out of sleep, half watching the Dick Van Dyke show when my husband phoned me from work.
He said a plane had hit the World Trade Centre. I'm thinking it had to be a Cessna or something and he's still talking a mile a minute telling me to tune to anything else but TVLand ( - he knew I'd be watching that channel and they wouldn't have coverage).

I tuned it in just as the 2nd plane hit and couldn't believe my eyes. I kept thinking this is some modern age "War of the Worlds" or something.

I even saw the 2nd tower collaspe live. It was absolutely horrific. All I did for the rest of the day was cry and was glued to the t.v. I heard them tracking the plane that went down in PA, the Pentagon, everything. And worst of all, I knew my aunt was on a plane that departed at 9am and didn't know if that one would go down too. Apparently it was the last or second last takeoff of a plane before they shutdown all air traffic in North America.
If I don't see you in this world, I'll meet you in the next one.....don't be late

I didn't find out about it until about 11AM!! I worked the night before and was sleeping. I heard my phone ring, and it rang a few times. I don't answer my phone when I'm trying to sleep. It was my sister who was trying to call me. I had not watched any TV or listened to the radio yet. I was on the road(I was in Ohio) and the first question she asked me was "Where are you?" At first, she wouldn't even tell me what happened. The way she was talking, so many things were going through my mind, at first, I thought something horrible happened to our parents, then I thought maybe somebody was assassinated(especially President Bush), or that somebody else really, really important died. So I asked "OK, who died?", and she said "alot of people!!"

Even over 7 years later, it's still really weird to drive up I-95 in N.Jersey, and not see the towers there.
Rest in Peace to my Penny-pie. You really were a GREAT dog. I'll see you at the Rainbow Bridge.

I was a sophomore in high school at the time. It was in the middle of history class. During the lesson another teacher came in and told the history teacher what had happened. He then told us about it. I can't believe it's been so long already since it happened. My history teacher at the time has since passed away.

Was working when my boss called a bunch of us over and said the Pentagon had been attacked. We went into a room and watched the news. It was around noon and all the details weren't in. Scarey and uncertain time for sure. Spent the rest of the day watching it, since that what was nearly every channel was showing.

I was nearing the end of a graveyard shift at the gas station I worked at then. I had the radio on as was my usual practice. This time the regular programming was interrupted with an announcement that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. About this time the day shift guys arrived and we were talking about how the towers had been there for many years and yet we never heard of an accident like this. Then they announced the second plane and we all looked at each other and realized this is no accident. Well I quickly finished my paperwork, went home, and turned on the TV. I got the set turned on just in time to see the 2nd tower collapsing. I spent the next several hours in front of the TV numbly watching the news coverage.

I just remember the feeling the next couple of days after that. You knew that things were never going to be the same, and you didnt know what was going to happen next. I wont forget that feeling. Its like there was life before 9/11 and life after 9/11.
