    When the first plane hit I was in Drivers Ed.

    Our teacher Mr. Wolfrum had the t.v. on and said "I think you should see this."

    I knew right away that it was terrorism.

    My friend Nathan whispered to me "armagedon". I doubted that, but knew America will never be the same.

    Where were you guys?

    THE RIGHT IS RIGHT

    Isnt he that asian basketball player?

    Ill always remember where i was. I was at school. decided that i needed to get some studying done so i would turn off the computer tv and radio until i did cause i wouldnt miss anything. so i was studying it was about time to go to class and so i went to check my email and everyone was like messaging me and asking me if i had seen it. I was like having no clue and didnt even believe them at first.

    Funny think is i dont think i remember anything about the European anthropology i was studying at the time.

    Crap! Is there any way to edit the title of a thread, because "yuo" makes me look like an idiot!

    That's okay. We are used to it. There is no need to change on our account.

    Just kidding.

    I remember it as a beautiful clear day, where the NYC skyline could be seen quite clearly from my 10 floor office window in NJ. A co-worker came in and said he had heard a plane went into the tower - could he open my blinds - of course told him go ahead. Meanwhile, knowing both my son and daughter-in-law work in the city (but not knowing their location in proximity to the towers) - I frantically tried calling Jim - no cell connection, no office connection, but was able to page him. In the short time while waiting word from him, I sat and watched the second plane slam into that building! I went through the tortures of hell before I finally got a phone call from Jim saying both he and the wife were safe and secure. I cannot even begin to imagine being one of those who never heard the voice of their loved ones again. My heart goes out to these families daily (and my blinds are kept closed at all times - I can't stand to see that changed skyline).
