  • I didn't get the total impact of what went on right away. I was excited to set up a room for my grandson so he'd have a place to stay when he was with us. I didn't even know what the trade center was. I was discouraged to learn they got that close to the pentagon and wondered why security wasn't better. I didn't understand until later they had hijacked the planes. Where were you?

      Hi Linda, I'm from Pennsylvania and I know this should of never happened ..Thanks for your comment
  • I was doing some work in a care home. We went to the van at lunchtime & put the radio on. The sombre tone to the presenter's voice told us something serious had happened. We went back in & up to an empty staff bedroom where there was a TV & switched it on. It was difficult to believe what we were watching, I think most people watching were equally shocked.

  • I was working - driving through Akron, Ohio. It was a clear, crisp day and I noticed the blue sky was unusually quiet (no air traffic), however, I did see one plane headed in a northwesterly direction. A strange feeling came over me - one that said "something isn't right". It wasn't until later that day when I stopped at a truck stop in Indiana that I learned what had happened. It then occurred to me that when I saw the plane flying over Akron, it was about the same time that highjacked plane flight 93 was reported to have flown through that area. I can't say for sure that the plane I saw was that particular plane, but recalling how strange I felt at the time, it still gives me a weird feeling to this day.

  • I got off working the night shift Monday night into Tuesday morning. First night back from a 2 week vacation. I got home and the first tower hit was all over the news. I tuned into Peter Jennings and watched the 2nd plane hit. It didn't register until the replay. The camera angle was the tower in front and the tiny plane in back. you know how it's an optical illusion and you see the plane come out the other side? when it didn't, it took everybody a minute to realize what happened. I recently saw the 2nd plane hit on a documentary, and it was unreal too. it looked like the plane just disappeared into the building, like a magic trick. then the explosion and fire inside made me understand what happened. I was tired after being up all night, but I was glued to the tv for the next 4-5 hours as the other planes hit the Pentagon and flight 93 crashed. I said to myself, America is under siege! For the first time, I was afraid for America. Now with Biden in office, I'm afraid again.

  • I was on my way from center city Phila. PA to visit my sister in Cherry Hill NJ via the high speed line. It was a real havoc there with people panicking right and left. Everyone rode free because the sentiment was to get to our destinations as fast as possible. Since we didn't know what was happening.
