  • At my daughter's (in the UK). Her neighbour was there as well, and the TV was on, with the sound turned down. Then, when the first pictures started, we saw the second plane hit. We continued to watch. The neighbour said that the buildings would collapse, and I said they would not, because they had been designed to withstand this kind of shock. Not long after, the first building came down. :(

  • i was sitting in my 3rd grade classroom wondering why people were being taken out of school
  • I worked second shift at the time, so I had just woken up, turned on the TV and there it was. It was before either tower had collapsed. I remember the newscasters discussing and speculating on the cause, unaware for a few moments that we the viewers, were watching the building come down. I yelled at the TV as if I could alert them to what was happening. I also remember using the word "idiots" far too many times that day.
  • I was laying on the sofa with my very premature daughter, who had just come home 5 days earlier, laying on my chest watching Good Morning America. They broke in with a news flash, and were interviewing people on the phone that had seen or heard it. I remember very vividly, they were talking to one of their news guys on the street who said that he has traveled into all kinds of war zones and it was, without question, the sound of a missile and not a plane. Then as we were watching damage from the first plane, the second plane fly in. It was that second that it all became a realization as to what had happened. I certainly wasn't thinking "terrorist attack", but that the first hit was also a plane.

  • I was in NH, driving to work. My car didn't have a working radio at the time so I didn't know. When I arrived, the radio was blaring and my manager told me that a plane had hit one of the towers.

  • I was only 6 years old and I thought we were watching a movie because my whole family was sitting down in the living room and everybody was crying and panicking saying scary things.
