    September 9/11, HubPagers, where were you and what were you doing on that horrific, infamous day?

    My hubby, I and a group of friends were doing return visits on people who showed an interest in the Bible. It was a beautiful day and things were going go until someone in our car group received a phone call from one of their relatives that both Twin Towers in NY were deliberately struck by an airliner! Shock! Disbelief, and numbness was on our face and countenance.

    I was out fishing at a nearby lake (ok I was floating bait in the water while the fish swam by laughing). After a few hours I got back into my minivan and went to pick up breakfast for me and my wife. I remember the local radio station was broadcasting the event live and at first it sounded like an accident. Then the second plane hit. I also remember telling the people in the drive-thou at McDonald's about it. At home I told my wife who switched to MSNBC. For a year she would have MSNBC running 24/7. The TV was not allowed to be changed or turned off.

      Thank you for sharing your experience Michael. It still is a shocker to me and the images of those poor people jumping to their death to get away from those burning Towers will be forever branded in my mind.

    I was at work. One of my co-workers stopped by to tell us a plane had crashed into one of the Twin Towers. My first thought was that some idiot show off had tried to fly between the towers and had hit one of them. I had an image of a small, single engine plane sticking half in and half out of one of the towers. Then the co-worker said it was a 767 and the whole image changed--so did all our lives, forever.
    I also remember exactly where I was, what I was doing, what I was wearing, and how I felt when the radio announced that John F. Kennedy had been shot.
