I was at work when a co-worker heard it on the radio and told me about it. We worked with a bunch of Bosnian refugees at the time and coming from a war torn country they were naturally quite concerned. Some of them were crying and upset so the boss let them go home right away. When I got home my TV cable wasn't working due to a storm the previous weekend so I just sat and listned to the coverage on the radio until the cable repairman got to my house.

I was in Reading in 6th grade (bleh) then at the end of the day we had an assembly and the principal said that we would be leaving early. At first I was pshyced but then she said "some terrible things have been happening in the world today"
At first I thought people were dropping bombs on the buildings but then after going home and watching the news my mom got some info. I thought she was crazy to be laying out on the deck sun tanning. I thought they were gonna drop bombs on our houses. Before hand I went home on the bus and all the kids were saying that we we're gonna die. I never heard of people purposely crashing planes into buildings.
Then I went to my friends house when she lived down the street from me, I remember sitting with her waiting for her dad to come home from where he was just outside of New York and how relieved she and her mom were when he came and talked about what had happened. I still was a little confused at what happened.
When I got home I wanted to watch the news with my parents but they said "oh this is boring, you can watch cartoons if you want." But I didn't and I remember watching George Bush speaking that famous tear jerking speech that night. Everyone was quiet when we heard that. I remember the next day going to school and everyone saying that it was the beginning of World War 3.



It's funny how clearly you remember things like that.

I was walking to Health class, and I looked at the TV, and it was talking about how the Pentagon got hit. Then, they put the twin towers on, and I was like.... whoa =/. I didn't realize what exactly happened until it collapsed. Sad memory

you can call my apathy unpatriotic, but had the whole nation not given a ****, like me, the terrorist attack would have been much less succesful

At any rate, said terrorists obviously werent looking for a body count, if they were they would have waited until a bit later in the day when the offices were completely full and various tourists were around the base of the tower, etc.


No, what they wanted to accomplish, and did so very succesfully, was to disrupt our lives and economy, which, through our fear, we let them do. I mean, the deathtoll on 9/11 was the same as the people who die in car wrecks every day, not that significant.

That said, if I lived in New York, I would have been scared as hell, but I didnt feel unsafe for a minute.

I remember my mom getting quite angry with me over the next few weeks, because I wouldnt participate in well...anything.

I don't recall anyone leaving my school early that day. I knew a lot of people were upset we didn't have school cancelled the next day, they said it wasn't that big a deal if we still had to go to school. Some people...

At school.. it was fifth grade... and the principal came on the annoucement thing and was trying to explain it.. and then our teacher tried.. but all of us were too young and stupid to know what was happening.






And then they forever-banned field trips.

I was working midnights at my first job, and i had a terrible migraine and ended up going home a half hr early, it was about 4 am and I didn't end up going to sleep until about 7:45, I couldn't sleep didn't feel great, @ about 9:45 I get this call form my aunt's then husband saying turn on the Tv, I was barelly awake he said go to the news station, a plane flew into the trade center all i thought about was the local Flea Market called The Trade Center, and the fact was irrelevant to me till I turned and I said OH THE TRADE CENTERThen he called again and said the Pentagon was hit just then another plane hit the Other tower, I thought I must be dreaming this or something then before my very eyes the one trade center crumbled to the ground. I called work and asked some of my coworkers if they seen it, I think just about everyone was on the phone calling near dear ones. I still cry when I think about it, what a terrible ordeal that had to be for those who died and the loved ones left behind. That was a prety prominent land mark in NY, my grandma was from there and we had pictures of it all over her house, had she still been around she would have been in shock. I still am, part of me wants so badly to beleive it is still there.

I don't know if I would call you apathetic. Pathetic maybe would be a better term. It might fit someone who feels they have to post on this thread twice just to tell everyone how much they don't care.

Tell that to the families of the victims. I didn't know anyone who died on 9/11, but I felt like I did.

I was in fifth grade. I remember we went out for recess and my gym teacher told everyone that a plane crashed into the world trade center. I didn't find out it was a terrorist attack until I got home. Then a bunch on my sisters friends came over and we all went up to skyline drive and saw the smoke rising over the mountains.

I was at work when it happened. They the state office up here in Albany, especially in The Corning Tower and the Agency buildings.
I didn't watch too much of the coverage it was too hard to watch.
