    I worked for a US army JOC contractor on one of the countries largest stockpiles of chemical weapons. I was nervous.

    Was exactly one month from graduating AIT in the Army. I was on the night class rotation and had just laid down to sleep when my suite mate came in and told me what happened. None of us got sleep that day. We all knew we were going to war.

    I was a freshman in college. I was in class, the department secretary came to the door and whispered to my professor. My professor turned to the class with both panic and a calmness in her voice and said the United States is under attack, classes have been dismissed for the day.

    I was working in a beer distributor. We always have a radio on, so I was listening as it happened. I remember when the 1st plane hit, they weren't sure if they were getting a fake report. I could see yhe smoke from my job and house

    I was a senior in high school. My mom woke me up early and told me to look at what happen. I remember teachers having the news on in class for the entire week.

    Bring me your Bickford, Ryan McMahon, Senzatela and Peter Lambert cards
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I was supposed to fly out of the Roanoke airport that morning to go to Atlantic City for a conference.....the first time I had flown in over 20 years. I heard about the first plane on the radio, but figured some small plane had crashed. On arriving at the airport I saw everyone watching the TV and a couple of minutes later seeing the plane had hit the Pentagon. Flights were cancelled and the guy going with me called our boss to tell her. She told him to drive both of us to Atlantic City (worst boss I ever had). We drove about 2 hours when she had someone else call us to tell us the conference had been cancelled (as I predicted). When I got home I was almost as angry with her as I was with the terrorists.
    A lot changed that day for the entire country.

    I just posted the question "what were you doing on 9/11?" on facebook. I was working on a website in my first apartment, and a client called me, and she wanted me to put a message on the website about it. I said "huh?" She told me to turn on the tv, and sure enough ...

    The pictures that were in the thread seem to have been removed, but you will get the gist of it.

    I was reread your story, and was going to respond, but I think my original response in that thread is still appropriate. And your story and writing is still as powerful.

    I was sleeping. My wife came in and told me to turn on the tv. I couldn't beleive it. My son was in the next room watching it on tv. It was his 20th birthday, and 9/11 was a big reason he joined the Army.

    Thanks. I had decided this morning that I was not going to re-read that post today - it just hurts too much. But, when I saw this thread I did reread it and it brought it all back. So much raw emotion came flooding back even after all these years. Now, I feel like a fool sitting at work with tears in my eyes. Man, I hate today.

    I had tears in my eyes myself, if you don't, or at least if it doesn't make you feel something, you aren't human.
