Having just recalled to my friend about where I was on September 11th 2001, does any one else remember where they were or what they were doing when they first heard the news of the attacks?

Yes, I was at home on vacation from school and my father was watching the tv... he saw the second airplane crashing when the tv were still talking of the first...

I was at school, I come home and my bro and dad were just staring at the TV, I called my friend and was like 'omg'. I've been scared of flying ever since... I couldn't understand why all those people had to die and how the people on those planes must have been feeling. And was then shocked to find out some people that I actually knew were pleased about it... :eek:

I was in yr 9

I'd just finished one of my first lessons of A-Level english lit. We'd discussed the merits of Margaret Atwood's 'The Handmaids tale'. I heard somebody shout something and checked it out, and I couldn't believe it.

I flew to Barcelona on a trip in 1998, but since 9/11 have refused to travel by air, as like you, through fear

I was late home from school becuase I'd been messing around in the common room, and then I came home to find my mum in tears, - she'd just watched the 2nd plane hit.

In the aftermath, I found myself with a morbid fascination to know what happened in detail

The most upsetting thing was seeing people jumping out of the windows, some holding hands. Those people must've been so desperate to have jumped from such a height.

I meant September 11ith 2001, though I understand the historical irony - though I was working by the American way of presenting a date (month, day, year)

That's Americans getting their days and months topsy turvy.
But 9/11 is now so recognised as it is that I can't really reverse it
