I don't think I will ever be able to watch that footage without crying. At least, I hope not.

I remember every moment of that day. Jeff worked at the Capitol and I didn't hear from him all day-- it was terrifying. And one of our close friends was on flight 93. I still can't believe it all...

Sophomore year of college. It was my boyfriends birthday and he lived down the hall from me. I ran down to his room to say Happy Birthday and I saw his eyes fixed on the tv screen. We both stared at the screen in silence.

Trying to go to bed after a nightshift - #1Wife called me and told me a plane crashed into one of the Towers. I worked that night in the hospital ER - it was the quietest night I've ever worked. No one came in.

Goosebumps and tears every time. Hope that never changes.

The phone call from my mother-in-law in NY woke us just in time for us to turn on the TV, only to see the horrific crashing of plane #2 into the second tower. Utter disbelief. Fucking assholes. I hope they burn in hell for all eternity. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

My husband came into our bedroom saying that a plane had hit the twin towers in NY, I was still half a sleep on the West Coast of Canada. My thoughts were "poor pilot how did a small plane get so off course." Never in my wildest nightmares did I believe a jet. On purpose. Needless to say we hardly spoke that day. My DD was nine months old. She was giggling and laughing enjoying her family oblivious to it all...we all just wanted to hold onto her.

I was getting ready to leave to go to work (manager-dept.store) OUr morning meeting was a prayer and we put TV's all over the store. My associates just stood around the tv's all day, if any customers came in, it was just for company. No one bought anything, it just seemed disrespectful. Everyone spoke in whispers.
We will never forget......

i will never, ever forget - my brother worked across the West Side Hwy; I spent all morning trying to reach him. He and his fiance were both safe, but they saw everything. I finally reached them around 4 that afternoon. They never talk of that day.

We watched the documentary on the history channel Friday night & I sat there with tears streaming down my faces as I watched the FDNY go into the buildings...knowing full well that many of those same guys didn't come out. Hearing the woman's voice on that video threw me over the edge, too. There's something about seeing/hearing the faces/voices of those who died, knowing that those were the last minutes they were alive. Wow...overwhelming.

Like so many others here, I hope that never changes. I will never forget.

Stunned silence in my office, watching the coverage on a TV in the conference room. Then I got a call that my brother-in-law was killed in a freak car accident in his garage. Driving to meet my devastated sister, while listening to the events unfold on the radio, was the most surreal moment of my life. The weeks that followed were a blur for me.

day by day said...

I was getting ready to go to London with my husband...an American Airlines Pilot. Our phone starting ringing, Everyone was so worried that we were somewhere in danger. I too thought it was a small plane..I turned on the tv a few minutes before the 2nd plane hit. We lost friends that day. Even if I had not known a soul...It would have killed me just the same. I will never ever forget, or let go. I will never not cry when I see something like that. Every anniversary its like I experience it all over again.

It's still to upsetting to think about but I will never forget it. We had better not forget it, the people who did this are very patient and I'm sure they love how short sighted Americans are.

I myself was in Queens my freshman year of college. I had my tv alarm clock and I woke up to the news about a small fire in Tower 1. When all of a sudden that second plane hit the other tower while I was tying my shoe laces and it all turned into a nightmare that fused with reality. I was so shocked that had to go outside to look cause I didn't want to believe the t.v. hen the first tower fell. Given the proximity my address and the towers address some 8 miles. my father and I agreed to look from the highpoint of the park. Upon arriving a local crowd had gathered people in bath robes we all we're praying for tower 2 and then everyone stared with gaping mouths and you heard people yelling no! and ahhh! omg! gasping as tower 2 came crashing down I'm gonna say this i got the slow-motion feeling like never before in that moment the no!!!!! like in a dramatic movie scene and then a eerie numbness for days if not months. I remember my english teacher making us right about our reactions to this. We will never forget!

If ordering from an online ed hardy Clothing store, she should either have tried ed hardy sale the garment on in a store somewhere ed hardy or she had better be buying ed hardy UK from a vendor with a great return ed hardy cheap policy. Buying from an ed hardy Clothes online vendor has its risks and ed hardy store they should be understood. The edhardy.com upside is that online stores christian audigier sale tend to have a large selection ed hardy dresses of clothing to choose from. The ed hardy Polos bad news is they can be more ed hardy sandals expensive, or the cost of shipping and handling ed hardy Jackets can offset any cost savings she might have enjoyed.
