This will always be my generations JFK. I was in between a morning practice and class. I watched it live from my dorm. I'm guessing I'm not the only one that remembers every moment of the towers falling. So where were you?

    I was in 8th grade and I woke up to the radio saying a plane a hit one of the towers and they weren't sure if it was an accident or not. Turned on CNN and saw the 2nd plane hit as well as the Pentagon. Went to school early for football practice. I think we had one or two periods before the principal took us out of class and let our class watch the news coverage for the rest of the day. Now as future infantryman I salute you America and you deserve this moment. Congrats from your Canadian friend.

    On my way to work on the SkyTrain (our subway). Only one in the car with a radio. Everyone thought I was either lieing or joking when I told them that they had just reported the towers were gone.

    i went to a SOIL concert the night before and was quiet hungover. my mom called me and told me to watch the news for her (she was at work) i got up and turned on the news and i was like wth? then i saw the 2nd plane come into the frame and then the 2nd tower exploded. i was still waiting for the plane to fly to the other side of the building it took me a minute to realize that it hit the tower. i kinda flipped out got on the phone with my boyfriend (now hubby) who was at work. where he then reminded me that my muslim egyptian step father was asleep on the other side of the house. i went and jumped on his bed and turned on the news to show him what was going on. he knew what was up instantly. he went to the bathroom and shaved his beard off. it was the first time i saw him with out it in 15 years. the reason? well when desert storm was going on he got attacked in a bar in dallas b/c i mean he looks like an egyptian w/ a beard. you can imagine i'm sure. let me just say that i love him like he is my own father. one of the best men on this planet. i've told him and my mom that when the time comes to a pick a nursing home for them she'll go and he can come live with me.

    I was waiting for my 5th grade teacher to come in to the classroom, and when she did the principal was with her not saying a word they turned on the tv as the second plane hit. This is a day that will be taught in history books and 20 years down the line it will be another boring, except for those who remember. I salute all those serving proudly.

    I was working in a chemical plant in Colorado. I have never seen the government move so fast to shut down a plant in my life. They stuck us in the conference room and did a backround check on all of us. We sat there and watched it on the news all day. Oh and we were at the end of the runway for the local airport.
