Good Morning

11 years later, do you remember? I do and will never forget.

8:46 AM EST New York City WTC was struck by American Airlines Flight 11.

I was in a hotel in Raleigh Durham, NC, packing to get on a flight to Washington, DC. My step-daughter called and asked if we were watching TV. We turned in on just as the 2nd plan hit the tower. Once we were able to think again, we obviously knew we'd not be getting on that flight so we drove the rental car to Washington.

I think what hit me the most was driving by the Pentagon two days later and seeing the devastation with my own eyes. I was amazed, but not really surprised that in the 48 hour period, the entire parking Pentagon parking lot was filled with what had to be hundreds if not thousands of golf carts, tents, portable buildings and all kinds of support.

Seeing everything on TV was bad enough....seeing it in real life just multiplied that emotions.

We were able to fly home that Saturday on one of the first flights out of Dulles. It was a very quiet and somber flight. Rules were changing by the person as we went through security.

I will never forget that week.

Oh and I remember sitting on the ground with my giant green duffel bag in formation with my M-16 and gas mask just waiting for HOURS for any orders/news to come down. We were sitting from like 11am to 11pm waiting, but never got deployed.

I'll never forget!

I was at the Men's Warehouse getting fitted for a suit because I was heading out to do some interviewing in the coming weeks.

We all stood there in shock and disbelief as we watched it unfold on the TV.

Thanks to those who service; police, fire and armed forces

I was in the army when 9/11 happened and stationed in Ft. Bragg as a airborne field artilleryman at the time. The base was immediately locked down, and we were told to get ALL our shit together and be ready to deployed anywhere around the world within 2 hours.

Guys who lived off post weren't allowed to go home and say goodbye, so only if you lived on post you had like 45 minutes to run home, get all your Ta-50, give your wife a quicky, and gtfo. Alot of guys made a mad dash to the shopette (a little convenience store on post) to buy tons of cigarettes. We also were sent to go draw ammunition for our howitzer cannons we never even HEARD of or had any knowledge it even existed.

Was a very hectic day, to say the least.

I was at home, getting ready to go to work, when my husband called to tell me a plane had hit the WTC. Watching the news reports in horror, I continued to get ready and arrived at my school before the 2nd plane hit, where all the staff and most of the students were deeply affected by the tragedy as it unfolded. We didn't cancel classes but remained available to listen to the kids as they tried to make sense of what happened. Strength in community helped all of us get through the day, though we were all changed by it.

I was on a roof, when the first plane hit I thought it was the local radio station with a pretty sick radio bit. It wasn't until 15 minutes into the report that I realized it wasnt a joke.

My most memorable part about the day night and days following - was the quiet of the night sky , no planes were in the air. the highway near our house was quiet , eerily quiet.

I was more sicked a few weeks later when I went to a game at the meadowlands and saw the rubble from the stadium across the river first hand. Something I will never forget

I was at work when an announcement came over the radio. Towers being hit, Pentagon, PA flight. Before long the shop shut down, and everyone was sent home for the day.

I was rocking my two week old son on my forearm while watching CNBC.

I learned later that two of my former co-workers were killed in one of the buildings that was crushed when the towers fell.

I was at a clients home and thought they had a movie on, till she said its live. At the time they still did not know about the Pentagon, I heard it on the radio in my car and made a mad dash, along with a ton of other parents, and took my girls out of school. Went home and CNN was turned on and left on.
