    Im new here and dont know if this has been done before. Where were you when you heard about the twin towers in nyc. Also if you knew or know of anyone personally invovled in it that day. I was working at Lockheed Martin in Grand Prairie. They told us to get out and they locked it down. As for personally knowing someone involved, my cousin was at the pentagon that day and thank god wasnt injured, but didnt get home til the next day. We need to remember this day. thanks

    I was at home. Was a stay at home Mom back then. Neighbors all came to my apt and watched the news together.

    As for me, I was in highschool, either freshman or sophomore year, and I was walking the halls before classes started and saw a couple of teachers and a few students in a room watching something on the TV, I walked in to see what was happening. Didn't know anyone in the area.

    I was in the 3rd grade at football practice. Wasn't sure why all the coaches were so upset and telling us to go home. It wasn't but a few years later when I watched the videos of the plane crashes to fully grasp what had happened.

    Working on a construction site in Arlington. Foreman's girlfriend called him and said a plane hit the WTC. We went to the office and listened to the radio, they sent the job home. I got home and watched the rest unfold on tv. That was the only time in my life I have witnessed something on the news that made me feel the type of anger I feel when my girls are threatened. The world changed that day, and I believe that we as a nation, should be reminded of how we felt watching that happen. There have been both positive and negative changes as a direct result, and my only wish is we learn. I did not know anyone directly affected.

    I was at home relaxing. My wife was on her way to Austin and heard about it on the radio. She called me and I turned the tv on.

    I do not know anyone involved but I will never forget that day.

    In Italy on a bicycle. Riding home, old ladies were shrieking "La Bomba, La Bomba" Got back to Florence with the wife and watched it on BBC. We were on the first plane back to the US out of Milan. F-16's flying circles over NYC and smoke still coming out of the ground. The plane sang the star spangled banner as we landed. I'll never forget.

    5th grade. Cop hosted class to talk about being a cop every certain day of the week. He came in late, confused, and freaking out while trying to explain it, but me being 10 didn't understand wth he was talking about till I got home and saw it on the news.

    Years later in HS some girl did a presentation for speech class, her cousin or relative of some sort was in the building when the plane hit, but managed to escape. She interviewed her on a recorder and played it in class. Lady was laughing while telling the story about how she escaped the building. That never made sense.
