I always wondered what it would be like to be a child during that day....to not comprehend what was going on in full and then more so to grow up with that event being part of my entire adult life!

Re: What Were You Doing on 9/11/01?

Can't remember if I already posted here, so here it is.

I showed up at school [early as always] to play basketball in the gym for a bit. When I got there, the janitor [Jim Nye the Janitor Guy] had pulled out a TV showing the news. I sat next to him and watched it. I was 9 at the time. I remember seeing the people jumping, and thinking how hot the fire must be to want to jump out and die. I remember hearing people call in to the stations to talk about what they saw.

I think the demeanor of the Anchorwomen/men affects me to this day. The cold, professionalism of it. There wasn't much panic in the newsroom, so I didn't panic. I heard the men/women casually talking about how many people must've died just moments ago.

Being my first exposure to such a large scale tragedy, that attitude stuck with me to this day. No need to panic or cry. I interpreted these anchormen and women as proper adults, and that all adults react the same way to this sort of tragedy. After 9/11 it was never brought up in my school, and it never came up at home. So for years, well into my teen years, my idea of how "adults" react to this was with calm professionalism. And I lived according to that.

I was walking into my 9th grade computers and technology class, teacher had just turned the news on, all we did was watch the news all day, saw the second plane hit live, and watched the towers collapse... terrible day...

I was in my 5th grade homeroom class then some teacher came in and told my teacher what happened. Then my teacher turned on the TV and watch it all unfold live as well. I think they let us out early but I can't remember.

I was in 8th grade's Ms. Ford's Social Studies class. I didn't really know what was happening. I seriously thought "its just a burning building"

Re: What Were You Doing on 9/11/01?

I to my friend calling me in the phone saying we got attacked and were going to war. I thought it was her way of joking because I tried joining the army the day before but didn't get accepted because my weight was 15 lbs over the maximum. But apparently after the incident my bmi seemed to be spot on, but I was like fuck that, told them I was pregnant after weeks of them hounding me..
