  • I was in English class in college..Each student had a laptop at the time, so we all knew what was going on right away. I remember then my english teacher getting a phone call from her mom...her brother and sil were inside the Pentagon when it was hit. God I swear, I remember every single detail about that day. It still scares the crap outta me.

  • We usually didn't watch morning TV. One of my sons went somewhere in the car and heard something on the radio and turned around and came home. He said, "I think it is the beginning of WW III Mom." I will never forget that. We saw the second jet hit in real time.

    One of the saddest stories I remember was that of a service dog. One of the shore authorities left his dog where he thought the dog would be safe and told the dog to stay. The dog was killed. They showed pictures of the dog and stories about all the good things he had done. The officer/handler was uninjured and was so upset. In disasters the stories of the animals always stay with me.

  • I was sleeping when it first happened. I got ready for school and came into the living room where my parents were watching the news coverage. (I dont think the second building had been hit yet.) At that point, nobody had concluded it was a terrorist attack.
    I got to school and during the morning announcements they filled us in on what happened. I remember sitting in science class watching the news coverage and crying with my classmates. we watched it the entire class period. Some kids chose to go instead to the cafeteria where our school counselors were offering support. Some kids were picked up by family....
    I will never forget the memorial at the seattle center in the days that followed. One of the most powerful things I have ever experienced. Muslims hugging big burly bikers and crying together...that is something Seattle is good for. Seeing what people have in common instead of pointing fingers...
