Was on a job site (cant remember where) doing the plumbing. Another guy who was there, heard it on the radio in his truck as he was leaving and said something to me. I thought it was a small plane like a cessna or something and didn't give it much thought.

Went on a smoke break outside and saw a stealth bomber flying overhead and thought "Oh that's cool!" never seen one of those flying before and didn't give it much thought after that.

When I was done for the day, I got in my truck and listened to the radio and that's when I heard it was more than a little cessna that hit.

Was my first year out of school. I was watching Fox and friends. The whole thing felt confusing. Went by my best friends house. He was half asleep and thought it was some movie.


My sweetheart was still in school so we went up there at lunch. We layed on the side of the hill talking about how weird quiet the skies were. All the teachers had the news on in the classrooms that day.

That Friday like many places our city was all out the streets. It was the only time I saw everyone being united. Was a crazy sight to see. We all wanted vengeance.

I was on a peak of a steep roof flashing a chimney.
The owner of the house came out and told me.

I was driving up to the Carthusian Monks on top of the Equinox Mountain to repair a walk-in cooler. I remember the feeling of I needed to get home to my wife and horrified about the innocence loss of life. Then the rage and wanting someone to pay for this crime and wondering what will happen next. Is this another Pearl Harbor.

I was on my way to a beaver job and told the home owner that one tower had been hit, he went in the house and watched and when I got back to my truck, he said the second tower was also hit. That was a yterrable day for America and we are forgetting.

At work in the office. I went home right after the south tower fell. I didn't know anyone that died that day, but I'm friends with folks that did.

I was hauling fish for our state conservation department and parked in Higginsville, Missouri waiting for private landowners to arrive and pick up their fish.

Our country was warned that day of our future as we turn away from God even more so now. The days following 9/11 - everyone was in church because they once again realized we are not in control. We now have elected Muslims in our government and others that want to destroy Israel - Gods chosen people. I pray everyone reading this get right with the Lord because it is even more evident now - our country is spiritually lost.

I was in the fifth grade and had just walked into the classroom after leaving art class, our teacher had it on on the tv. At the age nine of us were really able to grasp that it was a terrorist attack. It just seemed to be a random plane crash to us kids. Got home that night and I remember the folks telling us boys to go out and play while they were glued to the tv.

I was in front of a class of 16-18 year old students when an announcement came over the PA. Our principal said we could turn the TVs in our rooms if we wished.
Just a minute or so after I turned the one on at the front of my room, the second tower was struck. Except for a few gasps when the plane hit, you could have heard a pin drop. I was concerned that the scene may have been too much for some students(I was stunned by what we had witnessed). But I felt that what was going on on the screen in real time was too important for them to miss.

Those kids were at the point in life where some would be making the choice to join the service and maybe fight in the war the attacks brought about. Now, some of them have kids of their own that may be making that same decision.

Was at work, and watched the second plane hit the towers. We then was called out on an ambulance run. We loaded the patient, and on the way back, the driver told us the Pentagon had been hit. I called my wife as soon as we were back, and told her to go stock up on groceries. I filled the vehicles with gas, and went home.

I was fixing a glass door at a store in Green Valley IL. It was a sunny fall day - really quiet. I got done and drove a ways for lunch. really quiet and NO ONE on the roads. Got to Casey's to get lunch and gas was $5.00 a gallon. I went in and asked what happened then found a TV on the way back.

I finished the job like I was supposed to and after work I paid over $7.50 for gas. I could only get 10 gallons because it was all cask only. Everything was creepy quiet and people were very polite. The line was about 30 cars long at the gas station. most stations ran out of gas by that night and then people panicked about not getting gas ever again... Then George W came on TV and we all started figuring out what happened. It united the whole country for a while. Even the liberals got mad at the ones behind it. I saw one plane that afternoon after work. I always though it was President Bush but not sure. It was way higher than any other plane I ever saw. All planes were grounded for I think 3 days. My wife and I were going to give blood but after that first building went down we were told - thanks but don't bother right now.

Came pretty close to enlisting right there- should have done it.

I had just gotten off night shift. Was due back in at 1900. My wife came into the bedroom and said a plane had hit the WTC. I was already kinda out of it and figured she meant a small plane. After the second tower was hit, she came back in and told me about number two. I got up, I knew we'd be called back in early. We had 3 train stations on the Summit line that leads to Penn Station.

That night was surreal. I worked in the metro area and plane traffic is a constant. Those nights there wasnt a plane in the sky. I still remember parking overnights and the silence was deafening. After the first night. the train stations were still full. No one could make it out of the city that first night. By day two the cars started to disappear from the lots. most were gone on day 3. Beyond that night, you knew the cars that remained belonged to the ones who were never coming home. I can still recall the spots those cars were parked in. That day forever changed the was we did things in law enforcement. Hard to believe its been 18 years. I retired July 1 and just signed an offer of employment for a sheriffs office here on the eastern shore. Not sure Ill ever be finished totally...that day changed so many.

Was driving down Centre Street in Portage Michigan. I had just left my first appointment of the morning when my wife called and told me to turn on the radio

Rest of the appointments for the day got cancelled. As I drove home I seen long lines of cars from every gas station. Gas was $6.00-$7.00. I thought to myself. If this is so big you think you need to fill your tank, then its too big for that tank of gas to matter. My youngest was 10mos. old, I went home to be with my kids and wife in the event it was going to lead to something bigger

I was in Lithuania on a diving exercise. 40 FSW, wearing a hot-water suit. The exercise got cancelled. The dive team was escorted back to the barracks and then to the airfield. The guards were carrying AK-47's. That still seems strange to me. We flew back to the unit in Sigonella, and from there we were "fragged" out to protect US Forces throughout the Med. 9/11 was a change in dynamic for Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal. The term "asymmetric" warfare became the new reality. Glad to have served. Prayers to the lost and those still serving.

I was getting ready for school. 8th grade. Heard my dad tell my mom to come look at what was happening on the TV. I remember the craziness that followed with that black eye our country had.

I was on a fire near Heber, Utah and couldn't figure out why I couldn't get the aircraft that I had on order and desperately needed.


I have nothing clever to put here.
