I was at work. I worked for the USAF as an intelligence analyst. We had the television turned to CNN. We saw the second plane hit while they were showing pictures of the first building on fire. We were all in shock. No one knew at first if it was an accident or a terrorist act. It didn't take long to figure that out once we saw the second plane hit the second tower. At that point, everyone started to wonder if they were the next target. We had no way of knowing who was next or where it would be.

I was getting up to get ready for work, when I turn on the TV, as I always do each morning. I could not believe what I saw! I was in shock. I thought maybe something went horribly wrong with the plane....then I saw the 2nd tower get hit, Right then I knew it wasn't an accident. As was getting ready to head out the door to work....the Pentagon was hit also. I was so scared, I didn't want to leave the house. But I did. That day has changed my life forever.

I remember it very clearly. My high school marching band was outside on the asphalt practice field. Someone comes outside and tells our director that something terrible has happened. We find out what it was, and immediately pray, over the loud speaker outside.

I was listening to the radio and getting ready for work. The DJ cut into the song to announce that a plane had flown into the World Trade Center. For some reason I didn't comprehend the magnitude of the event. I guess I was thinking about way back in history when someone flew a little commuter plane into the Empire State Building or something like that. So I left for work, and when I got there,the my floor was deserted, which was pretty strange. I went down to the cafeteria to get some breakfast, and found it packed with employees glued to the cafeteria TV screens. It suddenly hit me like a punch in the stomach. Everyone was staring at the TV monitors with a stricken look on their faces. As I watched, the second plane hit and a collective gasp of horror flew threw the room. Then silence. I spent the next couple days feelings scared, horribly sad, and pretty shocked. I still cry whenever I watch media reports of 9/11, even though I didn't personally know anyone that died. I like to think that we have 3000+ angels watching over us now.

I was driving to work and listening to Faith Hill's "Love the way you love me" on the radio when the announcer broke in and said to stand by for an announcement from President Bush. He came on and was talking about the attacks. I didn't really comprehend it until I got to work and was trying to find some info about it on the internet and couldn't because they were so jammed. I was standing in my classroom next to a mom who is active duty navy when the announcement came on that the pentagon had been attacked. We all turned pale and she said she had to run and literally ran out the door. I have never felt so vulnerable as that day. I pray that we never do again.
