I was checking in on a remodel, saw 1 tower burning on the homeowner's tv and assumed it was an accident. Then a plane flew into the other tower and the world changed. The homeowner and I sat in her living room for many hours and watched. She cried, I probably did as well and we are still friends 15 yrs later. She is one of those customers that gets a hug when I show up for a service call.

I was out front of my house doing some lawn work when a neighbor said a plane hit one of the trades center towers..went in and watched the news, then the 2nd plane hit while watching and the tv went fuzzy as the second tower had all the antennas on it, till the news station switched to a remote location and the tv worked again...after that,,it was hunker down and watch as now it was no accident...then the reports of other planes crashing came in..a sobering day to say the least...

At a coffee shop on my way to school.
We listened on the radio all day in class.

Working in Manhattan. Saw the explosion of the second plane crashing. Too many bad memories from that day.

I drove from Imperial Beach to Fashion Valley CA to meet up with the guy "training" me in plumbing. As usual I took the silver strand into Coronado to avoid the traffic in Chula Vista. I was pissed because traffic was worse. Radio stations generally suck out there so I was just listening to cd's.

I got to Geoff's (FROG spelling for Jeff) almost 1/2hr late. He said, nonchalantly "America's under attack." While he sipped his coffee and complained about not hearing the weather. This was just after the second tower was hit.

Traffic on the strand was due to all hands on deck.

The rest of the day was spent working. After an hour of reports on the radio Geoff said "I'm tired of hearing this bull****... There has to be a station we can just listen to some ****ing music on!" Well he found one.

I talked with the customers the rest of the day and let him work.

I intend no disrespect or insult to any Canadians here, but this douch bag put the nail in the coffin for me toward French Canadians or Frogs for me. I've never had a good opinion of those people from early on in life growing up in New England. Rude, untrustworthy, selfabsorbed *******s.

Never Forget.

15 years ago... I was sitting in front of my wall locker. I had just "officially" become and soldier by completing basic training. We had a cleaning and inspection day before we started the advanced portion of training. We heard about the first tower and broke into the day room and turned on the TV. We saw the 2nd plane hit. Our 1st SGT came into the barracks wearing full combat gear. Our drill sgts followed behind, also in battle rattle. We were ordered out around the PT stand, with weapons and gear. Our 1st SGT climbed up on the stand, all 180 eyes on him. "We're going to war, and some of you aren't coming home." I still get chills today... in all our heads we thought he meant right then and there... I remember someone finally raised their hand... "1SGT, are we going right now?"

On another note...

If any NFL player sits during any sort of memorial today... I don't care about the anthem. That's a song, protest it all you want, but if a player sits or disrespects a 9/11 ceremony today I'll lose faith.
