Who were you with or around?
What were you doing?
Where were you?
When did you first hear about it?
How did you react, and
Why

I was alone. I was sleeping, and woke up to a phone call from my Dad. I was 18 or so...in my first apartment. My boyfriend was at work. Dad called to say he was coming to pick me up to watch tv.

I was a little shocked at first, but as the day went on I was saddened by all of the events. I was glad to be at home with my dad.

I watched the people plunge to their deaths. . .I listened to the phone calls. . . . .it was just sad. I also refuse to watch the footage and stuff. I think people should be let to get past it. I have a friend whose hubby is a firefighter who helped clean it up. The body parts...only fingers to finger print......the blood and gore. Just sad, disturbing.

I have no personal narrative to offer. Saw falling towers on a silent airport news channel monitor in Frankfurt and thought it was a trailer for some disaster movie. Didn't realize it was the real thing until my plane had to circle for an hour above the local Stockholm airport on account of the sudden global terror scare.

But I think of all the things I've read about 911, Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) comes closest to the truth, at this day 11 years later:

I still can't handle seeing anything about that day very well. I still have a very deep emotional reaction and it's not of the feeling sorry kind. It's the nuke Mecca type of visceral reaction and I am only moderately in control of it.

This wife and I had arrived back at home after a glorious couple of weeks in Florida. We were in the air the night before, and arrived back at our house early in the morning of the 11th. As soon as it was a respectable hourI visited a home I'd had some work done while we were away to see how it'd turned out. I'd just walked into their home and the mistress of the house asked me if I had seen what was happening in New York City - A plane had just flown into the World Trade Center Tower.

My first thought was that a small plane flying over the city had gotten disoriented and, maybe blinded by a morning fog, had screwed up big time, and so I said something dumb, like "I guess things like that are going to happen; it's happend before" But the scene on the TV was far worse than anything I'd imagined, and the damage was still limited to one building.

Being a self employed builder just returned from vacation, I had no place I had to be, so I just came home and put a tape in the VCR and recorded the events broadcast on FNC for the rest of the day, a tape I've watched several times since.

My reaction was one of being shocked and at the same time a witness of history being changed.

I was sleeping in bed because I worked the graveyard shift in a injection molding factory and my my brother in law came in and told be to turn on my TV because some retard ran a plane in to the world trade center.....When I turned on my TV that was when the second plane hit. I didn't sleep that day. That was a surreal day.

I was listening to the radio as I was getting ready to go to court. We'd had a felony shoplifting at my store and I had to be there to prosecute. When the radio mentioned that a plane had hit one of the towers, I turned on the TV. I saw the 2cd plane hit and realized that it was certainly no accident, but I couldn't stay and watch. I was in my car listening to the radio on my way to town when they announced that the Pentagon had been hit. I recall sitting at a red light wondering if it was safe to be going to a government building. Like [MENTION=3388]walruskkkch[/MENTION] , the images of the day evoke a deep seated anger in me.

Sophmore in high school.
English 2 class
I knew it was tragic. I was trying to console all the crying females.(no agenda was used lol)
I think we were reading Hamlet.
That is really all I remember besides the biology teacher running threw the halls screaming "turn your tv on NOW to channel whatever it was. The terrorists got us!
By that time, It had already happened. The whole thing..

I was at work, heard it on the radio first, then went in the office and watched it on tv.

My first thought was that it had been carried out by isreal to goad us into attacking the arabs. I don't know why that was my first thought but it was.
But that idea didn't last long. A week later me and a friend put up a banner on a freeway overpass saying '' FUCK MUHAMMID''. We hoped to see it on the news but someone must have taken it down quietly.
