    We were watching the screen as soon as the first plane hit the Twins. I said to a colleague that this was not an accident but the works of al-Qaeda. A couple of minutes later the second plane crashed into the other tower. Then the Pentagon was attacked and another plane crashed...

    Me Too

    My dad was a fireman with Glasgow Fire Service and its successor, Strathclyde Fire Brigade in Glasgow, Scotland. He was still serving when it happened and was on Day Shift. I went over to his station and stood with the Watch in the TV room, watching in amazement.

    What I Was Doing That Day.

    Mom woke me up, saying something about the trade center being attacked. What went through my mind was that the place had been attacked by terrorists unsuccessfully twice before, so I was unconcerned and went back to sleep. I was wrong about that. I remember walking...

    Way to End the Day.

    I came home from school to see my mother watching the images of 9/11 on the news. She said she thought she was watching a horror film at first, then she realised it was actually happening. As a 10 year old it didn't mean much to me because I didn't really understand what was...

    9-11 was just another attack on the U.S. and I may have been young but I remember everything that happened, someone ran in the room and screamed "WE'RE GETTING ATTACKED!!!" And we were of course. I then turned on the TV and then I saw the most horrific sight I've ever seen on TV...
