Where were you when you first heard the news about the tragedy of 9/11 attacks?
Im curious to know where you were and what you were doing when the tradegic history was being made? lately alot of tv programs are reliving the history.I remember i was sleeping about to get up for work when my mom called to wake me up to tell me to turn on the tv b/c history was being made. i was glued to the tv for the rest of the day. i called into work. i just remember i kept thinking i was watching a movie.
I had just arrived in El Salvador after travelling from the UK. I'd left from Heathrow on the Friday and flew to Washington and then on to Los Angeles and finally to El Salvador.
I escaped the mayhem by a just few days and found out about the tragic event on the Monday evening. There were a lot of people who were worried for my volunteer friend and I but we were fortunate to have arrived safely and without incident. For that I truly thanked God and my heart went out to the bereaved that lost their loved ones that day.
A very sad moment in history.
I was in school when I first heard. We sat in class watching the news just dumbfounded on all the hows and whys. Parents were rushing to check out the kids, and I remember thinking how stupid that was since that was happening in New York, way across the country. And of course my mom checked me out. I went up to work and mostly everything just seemed in a standstill. No one was doing anything, employees and customers were just sitting listening to the news and talking.
I woke to the radio talking about it, it was 6.30am in Sydney. After listening and watching reports until I went to work I really couldn't believe it until at work we knew of people who were involved.
The company I worked for had an office in tower 2, this made it all too real. It was an awful day and it took many months until everyone came to terms with what happened.
9 years later I still find it hard to watch any footage about the disaster and still cannot believe human beings can be so cruel to each other. A very sad moment is history which should never be forgotten.
Just walked in from Football practice and got out of the shower while walking to second period for our speech and debate class. I walked in and the TV was on and every one was in awe while watching the chaos. I walked into my Geometry class and watched the second plane hit...and I just got shivers down my spine just thinking about it.
I had just woken up, and news of the attack was being plastered all over every channel of course. I tuned in just in time to witness the first tower fall. I honestly thought it was fake at first. I couldn't believe how it had fallen down so perfectly. A few minutes later they had estimated the death count at somewhere around 50,000! That shows how fast the media went for the shock factor! It was just horrible! I think that I was still in shock even as the second tower collapsed to the ground. The true reality of the whole ordeal didn't actually sink in for me until the next day, as I had to watch the towers crumble again and again. It still makes my breath catch in my chest every time I see it. What a tragedy! Whoever is responsible for this horrible act IN TRUTH is a group of atrocious individuals.
I had four exams that day. I had just taken the first one and was sitting in my second exam with only a hand full of people. And we were wondering why no one else was there. Then someone came in yelling, "America is being bombed!" We were like, "What?" Then the professor came in wrote on the board that the exam was canceled and school was canceled for the rest of the day. He then told us what really was going on.

I was living in Queens, NYC and was feeding my 1 month old baby and watching the news when I first saw footage of the fire in one of towers. So much has changed since then.

I was teaching Brit lit to my seniors. A fellow teacher/friend came in and told me about the first attack, and we all thought it was a tragic accident. Then he came back to tell me about the second plane. All the teachers turned on their TVs and regular teaching pretty much shut down. Hubby was...
