    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'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 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
