Default Where were you during 9/11?

We were and are watching a video in 9/11 in my World History Class and it is SO CREEPY. Yes, I was alive, but barely remember what happened. I know what happened, I just don't remember my personal experience with it. I thought it'd be really fascinating to hear your stories about it. Such a tragic event, and I hope it never happens again!

I was in lower Manhattan that day and saw the planes hit the buildings. I had friends that were in the buildings. One walked down from the 90th floor and made it out. Some of his co-workers waited for the elevator and didn't get out. I was very happy to get home that day.

There is a thread every year to remember 9/11. RIP.

On September 11th I was in one of my college classes. One of the other professors came in and told our professor and class about the first plane, and then a few minutes later about the second plane crash. I remember everyone was shocked.

I was in college in Michigan. It was my morning to sleep in, but I woke up with an earache. My mom called me and asked me for my cousin's phone number (she was an intern at the Pentagon). I asked her what was so urgent and she screamed at me to turn on the TV.

Then I remember my roommate ran in - she had run across campus when she found out what had happened and she'd screamed "WHERE IS YOUR DAD?" because he had just flown out of Dulles the day before. Thank God, my Dad was safe, but one of his friends went down on the plane in Pennsylvania.

Oh, and I do remember logging in here that night. All of us from everywhere were reaching out to each other trying to make sense of what had happened. Not sure how many of us are still on SO, but I was HERE in 2001.

I was pressure-washing my house with my father when I first heard of it from my sister-in-law.

I was asleep. I woke up saw there was an attack, and wished my condolences to the people in the towers and went back to bed

I was on my computer when my Mom called and told me to turn on the tv. At first we thought it was just a horrible plane crash. I'll never forget it!

I was in Vancouver and slept through most of it. I didn't know what happened until I got to work at RBC Visa. RBC had an investment office across the street from Ground Zero, and their windows were blown out. The Toronto office closed for the day, and we in Vancouver had to cover for them.

i had just started watching a rerun of Little House on the Prairie. it was the episode where the blind school burns down, killing Alice Garvey and her baby. The other TV was on NBC. I had the volume on Little House pretty low while i had NBC on with Matt Lauer and Katie Couric. Then the second plane hit and all hell broke loose. Then Tom Brokaw joined Couric at the anchor desk, and the next thing he said was chilling to this high school kid:"This is war. This is a declaration and an execution of an attack on the United States." then the Pentagon was hit, then that plane crashed in PA. The combination of both the towers and the Pentagon burning , and the blind school burning down on Little House on the Prairie is something i'll always remember for the rest of my life.

I was at work IMing with a friend who works from home. All of of sudden, he wrote "Jesus Christ! A plane just flew into the World Trade Center!" I was shocked and immediately thought that it was pilot/electronic error until the second plane crashed.

When the plane hit the Pentagon, all of my coworker's phones began ringing off the hook with friends and loved ones checking on their well-being. There were so many rumors flying around; the CDC in Atlanta was also hit, Leesburg Airport in VA was on fire... I was freaking out because I couldn't get hold of my husband who worked sneezing distance from the Pentagon.

I stayed at work for another hour trying to calm down my clients. Our computers were pretty much unusable due to the heavy traffic. I bailed by noon, went to 7-11 and bought 6 gallons of bottled water and headed home. Fortunately my husband was there supervising the installation of our new siding while watching CNN at top volume.

I couldn't stand to hear or watch the footage of the attack, so I leashed up two of my dogs and went on a 3 mile walk through my way too quiet neighborhood. I remember how empty the sky looked without any jets in it. It was one of the most frightening days of my life. It really changed how most Americans and Europeans looked at the world.

Unhappy 15 Years Later

God bless those who lost their lives.

I was in one of my college classes when I found out. What a terrible tragedy.

Oh No

Me and my mom were going to see our grandparents, my grandpa had a doctor's appointment. We swapped cars at our other grandpa's and we heard the bad news.

What makes matters worse is now after 15 years of the WORST tragic moment, it's now being forgotten and/or becoming a joke! That's pathetisad!
