I heard more than a few reporters say that this is one of those days that you will always remember where you were when you first heard the news because it's the last time the world was as you knew it.

I was waking up. I had gone to bed at 3 am the night before and at around 12 am mom came to my room and said "you might want to get up because..." I figured she was going to say "so that you will be able to sleep tonight" (I was trying to shift my sleeping schedule back to days after being on night shift) but instead she says "because the united states is under attack, the 2 world trade center towers have been hit as well as the pentagon"

my first words were "what the ****?"

I was in French II, on the first day of school. It was heart breaking news, to hear that someone could be so ruthless! It makes me sick.

I was sleeping, and my mom came in and woke me up. She said turn on the TV. I did, and the first thing I saw was a jet going into a building. I was like " Oh my god! What is going on." I have been disturbed by that thought all day. One distant family member was supposed to be working as security today. Luckily he took the day off to pick up another relative from the airport.

I was on an electronic conference show in Montreal.. and the guy that was suppose to speak was late.. And when he came in, he just said that he was late because 2 planes crash on the World Trade Center... Duh! We thought that it was a joke... But at the end of the conference, we saw everyone looking TV..

Shining my shoes, checking my email, turned on CNN on my laptop and... Boom, smoke pouring out and people saying we were under attack. Next thing I know, there is an announcement on the hallway speaker saying that we are at Threatcon DELTA

I was on my way driving into New York city when I turned the radio on and heard about what was going on, I turned around and went back home because so many of my friends work there. Its funny but my father said to me that he will always remember where he was when he heard Kennedy was shot, and Im sure my grandfather knew where he was when Pearl Harbor was attacked, so this is prob the one for my generation. Its all such a shame
