Where were you on sept. 11 2001?

I was uptown Going to work on the west side of manhattan. Saw a bunch of cops and ambulances passing by. I was like what the **** is going on! Then some people told me what happened. It took me 2 hours to get downtown. Just 20 blocks. Usually it takes 10 minutes. Had to hop on a ups truck going over the bridge. Tons of people were walking across the bridge on the car lanes to get out of manhattan. I looked out down were the twin towers were and all I saw was smoke. It was horrible. Everyone in manhattan was out on the streets looking at tv's in the stores. It was like a scene out of a movie

I was home & woke up to see it on tv. I watched Air Force One land at Offutt Air Force Base while waiting to pick up my daughter from school. Was an eerie thing to see, as the President was on board.

Daughter drew this picture, amazing how kids interpret & deal with these things.

I was ouside playing touch football in PE, i was a freshman in HS, we had just consolidated 2 RIVAL schools, so that... yeah, it was a pretty bad first few months, but anyways, after PE we had to go to 2nd block, which for me was Biology I... as we were coming up the steps this guy comes sliding down the rails--you just gotta know this idiot--& he yelled "we just got bombed by china!" we just thought he was being a moron again & just ignored it..... got up to Bio & we had to take a test... well Mrs Lundy (uuughhh) told us a bit of what had happend-by this time, only one plane had hit... so she goes n her supply closet & gets out the tv on the little rolly thingy & sets it infront of the room & lets us watch it, but not really WATCH it b/c we HAD to take that test we me being patriotic & emotional anyways (im a cry baby, lol) i already teared up... but decided to focus on the test, so i missed the 2nd plane hit... took the test, went to lunch, the whole cafeteria was SILENT... we just sat there @ our tables, only a few got lunch, we just couldnt believe it, then the rest of the day went on as normal, well not normal, but we still finished out the day... i got home, shew... bawled....

I was a softmore in hs, and was actually running late that day, I had to sneek into class just after the first plane hit and everyone was watching it unfold on tv. Classes weren't cancleled but nothing happened that day, everywhere we went all the tvs were on and tuned into the crisis. For a high school I have never herd that much silence.

I remember it like it was yesterday. I was washing dog bowls at the vet clinic. I was listening to the radio when the first plane hit and everyone thought it was just an airline accident. Then the 2nd plane hit and everyone started getting nervous. I walked to the lobby to watch the news and saw that the Pentagon was on fire.

Even though all of this occured a thousand miles away it was still weird right here at home. I lived near a military base at the time and it was really creepy NOT to hear jets constantly flying overhead, since even the military was grounded at first.

My brother who's an emt was there after it happened. About two days after. He was searching for survivors and told me he saw alot of body parts. He was pissed and in shock at the same time. He was able to find one person with the teAm he was with. One person in just 5 days of searching

Forgot to mention the train system was shut down. That's why it took me so long to get home
