I was halfway down the entrance ramp to 422 West from Trooper Road here in Audubon, Pennsylvania. I was listening to KYW-1060AM (The News Station) when they cut over to WCBS-880AM in New York when the first plane hit...and I heard the second plane hit, live.

I knew it was an attack right then and there, and called my wife to tell her to "keep your head up - this is just starting."

I hate being right like that.

well when i first heard what had happened i was in my ecocnomics class and we thought oh, it must have been a little plane that hit the towers, but we got on e internet and we saw the pictures...i couldn't believe it. i didn't find out about the pentagon until my theatre class which is towards the end of the day and i had no clue the towers had collapsed until my mom picked me up from school.that night i watched the news for hours still not believeing what happend. i get goosebumps just thinking about all this.

my mother came in my room around 9am or so and yelled "we are going to war". my mother is the sort of person who over-exaggerates so i told her i was going back to sleep. at 9:30am i turned on the news and saw four words that made my heart stop "new york city attacked". i started crying because my bestfriend lives there. and he had just gone into the city the day before. so i was really worried about him because he did not live too far from it i was worried sick. i tried calling him and i recieved this message from the operator "we are sorry. the area you are trying to reach is unavailable at this moment due to the tornado warning". i was really really confused. i will always forever remember this day and the affect it had on everyone. i finally did get a hold of him. he was pretty shaken up by it. seeing the wtc the day before.. and now it never being there again. all those people.. all the horror. it felt like a really really horrible nightmare. if only it would have been..

I was on the bus on the way to school at 7:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time and overheard someone talk about it on the bus. I thought they were joking, and it was not until I walked into one of my teacher's classrooms did I hear the news from her. But she didn't have a radio in her room, and the Internet was down throughout the school that day. I only heard snippets of radio broadcasts throughout the day and that was it. Then when I got home, I saw the destruction for the first time. I didn't know that the World Trade Center was the Twin Towers until I saw.

It was so devastating. I used to live in New York when I was little.

I was working in the front office of my Alabama highschool, when the goofy assistant from across the hall tapped on the glass window infront of me. He leaned over to the window and said "America is being destroyed," and I said, "Shut up, you joke too much." Glancing up, I noticed that he wasn't joking, and as he told me what had happened, my heart dropped.
