Where were you on 9-11??

I was at work and remember hearing it on the radio... I stopped production for a moment only to get reprimanded by my then boss... Started production again when I heard about the 2nd hit... Sad to say, I was in complete shock but my asshole boss still made me continue working... Lost 2 friends... just speechless and filled with rage that I had to continue on like nothing happened!

I was also at work and heard it on the radio. We didn't get anything done that day, it was like it was unreal. I'll never forget what happened and I hope no one does.

The light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off due to budget cuts.

Just got off work.

Got home, sit down to eat a bowl of cereal, click on the tv, watched the 2nd plane hit.

Made me sick to my stomach. sad:

I was in college, and had just gotten out of the Navy. I was still eligible for recall, so any turmoil kind of made me nervous. I woke up and saw I had a voicemail from my mom that said "I just wanted to say I love you." She always got mushy on me whenever tension would kick up in Iraq, so I figured it was another one of those stories. I turned on CNN just in time to see the 2nd plane hit, live. It was chilling.

Classes that day were VERY somber.

+1. I remember thinking it was a hoax for at least an hour. Things like that "just couldn't happen". I figured it was edited video or something....maybe some elaborate sales pitch for a new movie.

Class went on mostly as normal, and we had football practice that day. Nobody in school really spoke about it, we were mostly shielded from it. I don't think it sunk in until I got home and actually saw some real news and actual footage about it.

There are 'glass half empty' people, and 'glass half full' people. Then there are engineers who see that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

I was at class in 11th grade in high school. I will never forget it. One of the teachers in my school was on the second plane. RIP
