I was in 7th grade and had no idea what was going on.
You can't see! I can't see! All that matters is can the f*&%ing horse see! That's a raid!
I was a freshman at Wofford. I worked in the mailroom every morning starting at 7:00 until my first class as a way to earn some extra money. On Tuesdays, my first class wasn't until 9:30; it was history. I was working in the mailroom with a radio, no television. I heard something about it on the radio, but the woman who worked there didn't always listen to news, so I thought they were doing some sort of weird book review or book reading. I went to history at 9:30 and their was no discussion or inclination in that class of what happened. It wasn't until 11:00 when I got back to my dorm room that I found out what was happening. I will never forget that Tuesday morning, ever.
You may run like Hayes, but you hit like $*!#
At USC in a buddy's dorm getting ready for a Geography class when the planes started hitting. Was also IRR in Army so new would be getting activated after that.
Was a freshman at USC and walking to German class when I heard at the Russell House that a plane had hit. My professor dismissed the class as soon as he walked in and I watched the 2nd plane hit on the 3rd floor of Snowden. Crazy how vivid that day is.
7th grade science E.L. Wright middle school
Believe it or not I was in a class being put on by the National Safety and Transportation Board.

**** I'm not an insider, I just live here ****
was on my way to play Pinehurst #2 for first time. Odd thing is the next time I went we lit up Baghdad.
Watched the 2nd plane hit because a friend called and said " turn on your tv ".
I will never forget watching the 2nd plane hit. There's a video that's perfect where a woman in NYC screams " they did it on purpose " . I remember how it felt thAt exact moment that the 2nd plane hit
I watched the rest and a lot of my friends decided to go to war that day
I remember flying within a week of airports flying again. We were searched by men with automatic weapons at a makeshift checkpoint before entering the airport.

I didn't have to go to work until after lunch that day ... so when my friend called and woke me up to tell me what was happening, I didn't believe her.
In computer lit, senior year in high school. Seems like there are a lot of 2002 grads on the board. The announced when first plane hit, and I remember chiming in saying how any pilot could hit such a large structure. Obviously, it turned out it wasn't a mistake...
I was on my way to Dallas on business. Had landed in Atlanta, changed planes and was sitting in an emergency aisle seat speaking with the guy siting beside me. He happened to be friends with our pilot who walked back and told us they had been grounded and we were to get our things and debark the plane. Once out on the concourse, we made our way(two strangers) to the closest TV and and just as we walked up we observed the first tower falling.
We joined others in prayer for the victims. People were in shock. I said goodbye and went to the nearest Crown Room. I knew some of the Delta Staff and they informed me all planes were being told to land. All flights were being cancelled. By this time I had spoken with my wife at the Federal Court Building in Columbia and they were being dismissed. My son called me (who lived in Atlanta), since there were no rental cars available, he told me to take Marta uptown and met me. I got his keys and SUV and drove back to Columbia.
Two of my co-workers who traveled as I did were not as fortunate. They had their planes land many miles from their homes. One got a rental car and drove back home the other had to take a bus.
A few weeks later, once flights started back, I flew from Columbia via Atlanta to Washington. To land in our nations capitol and see Military with machine guns in our airport was sobering.
I have so much respect and pray for our young people that are defending us. Our first responder's are also so very important.
Our lives changed that day. Our nation changed and we are still be threatened by these zealots. It was a day I shall never forget.

I had an appointment in the Wachovia bldg downtown Cola around 9:30. I was oblivious to what had just happened in NY. Anyway as I was making my way toward the elevator I sensed people were really nervous and most were leaving. I foud out the buyer had already left...then I found out what had happened, went back to the office and was horrified watching the news.
