 I was at home with my 1 yr old.  I was 22 and thought the news was airing something from years ago at first.  I then paid attention and the 2nd plane hit.  I was so shocked.  I was so sad instantly and that lasted quite a while.  I was in the midwest and didn't know of anyone involved personally.

I watched the news and then wrote my dd a letter of everything I love and hope for her. I cried the whole process of writing it.


 I wasn't sure what was going to happen.

I was in grade 7. They brought a TV into our classroom, because it was history in the making and we would remember that day for the rest of our lives. My mom came and picked me up from school at lunch. (she was going to anyway, she bought me a cat) When we got back to the house, we sat on the couch, watched the news, and cried.

I was 15 getting ready for school. I lived in California. I cried on the way to school. My brother was stationed in ny at the time and went down to help with body removal.

I was in my 6th grade social studies class, the teacher from across the hall ran in our room and told us to turn on the TV, just in time to see the 2nd plane hit

I was 14. I was just getting out of bed when the 1st plane hit. I got to school and heard some friends talking about it, so I went into the library to ask the librarian and she had a tv hooked up watching it and I got in there just in time to see the 2nd plane hit. Every class all day was watching the news. So, basically classes were cancelled, but they still had us attend to help keep track of us in case anything was planned for Seattle.

Taking care of my grandmother who was on her death bed. I actually lived with her and got to sleep in that morning because her nurse was there early. The nurse came to wake me and tell me what happened.

I was a freshman in high school I have no idea what class. I didn't really find out what happened till after school. My dad picked me up which never happened. His work was a potential target so everybody got sent home.
