Just wondering where you were on that terrible morning of 9/11? I remember I was doing the breakfast dishes and heard about it on the radio. Right away I thought that life would never be the same, and I was right.

I was in elementary school! Somewhere between the first and third grade. We didn't really know much of what was going on since we were so young.

@Angelee_27 So you still are a young one! Did you see it on TV later on?

@marlina Yes, I am 22 now. I did see it on TV later and as I got older I was able to understand more of what happened. It's so sad!

I was looking at the TV right before I had to leave for work.

I was at school during my English class. I wasn't quite sure what was happening until I heard people talking about it and I saw the news. We all left early on the bus and so many people were crying and sobbing. Such a horrible day...

I was watching some program on TV when the pictures appeared. I switched to a good news channel only to be shocked by the images.

Even the good news channel had those images on TV that day?

I had been in bed fast asleep. As I had used the t.v. as a nightlight for my kids, I woke up only to see this nightmare. At first I could hardly believe what I saw. It seemed so unreal. It was only after I changed the station a few times that it hit me that this was indeed very real. Needless to say, that snapped me awake! I practically ran into the livingroom, to see my husband and in-law watching on in horror.

I remember waking up here in New Zealand and watching the images on TV before I went to work.

I was on my computer at the time, and I hadn't heard about it until my daguther called and told me what had happened. It was then that I turned on the tv and saw what happened, and it literally made me cry, as i was so upset, and I just didn't want to do anything. That was one day, I don't think anyone of us want to relive again.

I was working in a public library back then and was on my way to work tuning my radio to get some music, like I always did. I heard bits and pieces of it and thought at first that it was some sort of gag. But when I got to work and saw the children's room assistant had the radio on and her glum face, I knew it was real.

Of course it happened in the morning US time, but it was afternoon in my country. I remember very well that I was in the mall, my husband was buying a new computer. The TVs for sale were turned on and we all saw the terrible images on the screens. I will never forget that day, as I never forgot what I was doing when JFK was assassinated.

I was at work when this happened working as a receptionist. A man walked in and said "a plane crashed into a building". I said ok and went along with my paper work. Then a kind of silence occurred, even though I was by myself. After turning on the tv and seeing what was going on I felt really terrible about my initial reaction to the man that had walked in. It still bothers me that I was so nonchalant about it. I was glued to the tv for the rest of the day.

I was at work, and once the second plane hit, everyone was in shock and trying to find news on our desk radios and computers, but all the news sites were jammed with traffic. No more work went on that day from the moment the second plane hit.

I was just a young one in kindergarten, but I remember having the whole school evacuated to the football field where our parents had to come pick us up. Everybody was scared and panicked. It was terrible experiencing that. I thought that was terrible and there's nothing explainable to the grief the families of the lost loved ones must face this time of year. I hope they're all coping well.

We were all sleeping and my friend rudely awoke us via the phone. I wanted to wring her neck for going bizerk and calling me so early - and I thought what she told me was a huge exaggeration as it always is. Well, she had me turning on the TV this time - and oh boy it was no exaggeration. It was darn right scary!
