I was in 7th grade English class in Ingram, Tx

Was home from school with strep. My grandma had a work trip that was planned for that time but got canceled. Her employer office was in the first building that got hit.

I was at work in Greenville,TX!The TV was on and we were allowed to go in for a few minutes at a time and watched the horror!My hubby was at work at L-3,couldn’t get a hold of him as they were on lock down

I just got home from the hospital with my daughter (she was an emergency C section) we where sleeping and my husband came in yelling “Keri come here we are under attack”). I will never forget.

I was in Mr. Zunighas math class at Greenville Middle school. I was in 7th grade at the time.

I was in 9th grade science class when we heard about it. And then got to watch it on the news in health class. We were all in shock and couldn’t believe what was happening.

I was in my office in McLean, VA watching a live video stream about the World Trade Center. Then I saw the smoke rise from the plane hitting the Pentagon. A very crazy day!

I was working in the office at Lone Oak high school, the day school stopped

I was at work - PCA in Gville with Rhonda Lambe Chandra Mapps Angela Bruce Laurie Davis Rushton SamanthaMcLarry....not sure who else.

I was 7 years old and at home from school that day. I think my Dad had a doctor’s appointment. He called me and my younger sister into his room to watch the news. All I remember thinking was why do they keep replaying these people dying.

I managed the Southridge Apts with Beverly Tarrant & we were in shock!!

I was just getting off work in Rockwall. As i was leaving i turned on the stereo i had 97.1 the eagle on. They were explaining the first hit at the trade center. Now this station was known for a few pranksters posing as djs and i thought i was listening to a sick joke. Then i realized i was listening to Tom Brokaw. I raced down interstate 30 to greenville and ran in the house. My wife already had the tv on and as soon as i got into the living room i saw the 2nd plane hit. I stayed up and watched the tv all the way up to the collapse of the towers. Unbelievable. I managed a nap and went bsck to work that night. I think the eeriest feeling that hit me was going outside that night and not seeing any aircraft in the sky

Getting ready for my first class of the day at Texas A&M in College Station. I watched in shock as the plane hit the tower on the Today Show while getting ready. When I got to class my professor never showed up. As it turns out-his son worked in the Pentagon and we had not heard about it yet. Thankfully his son made it out ok.

Teaching 3rd grade - I can still remember that I was writing on the board when a teacher came across the hall and whispered to me what had happened. I'll never forget the fear of not knowing what was going on and my thoughts instantly went to each member of my family and wondering about them.

I was in 3rd grade at club hill elementary

I was 8 months pregnant with my first son. Home alone, pregnant and scared to death.

Vacation just started was in Jersey on train into the city when everything unfolded. Was like a nightmare

I was a freshman in high school. Our history class got interrupted when another teacher was knocking on the door. We watched the tv the rest of the day. Some students went home, some of us cried..All of us were highly confused. As a young teen it was hard to grasp something so sad and devasting. I remember 9.11 was pretty much all that was on the tv for weeks. I remember watching the recovery efforts, having a new love for fireman, cops, and every day people. Eventually we had to turn the tv off bc constant footage was overwhelming.

I was at work at Texas Instruments in Sherman, TX. Everything stop when word got around of what had happened. 😪

I would have been in 3rd grade didn't know anything about it till year or so later

I had just dropped my kids off at school, settling in on the couch to watch the morning news, right as the live picture of the 2nd plane hitting the tower. I was in shock! I felt like we were definitely being attacked and would be having a war on our own soil. To this day those live scenes of people jumping to their deaths make me cry.

College on Long Island. Saw the second plane hit. Saw classmates that were volunteer FD go to the towers. Knew one of the FDNY that never came home.

I was just finishing an Alaskan cruise. We had docked at Vancouver during the night. During our debarkation meeting the next morning, we were told what had happened. They kept us onboard for an extra night and then bused us to Seattle for another overnight, since no flights were allowed. Armed guards boarded our bus at the Canadian border to check all of our identifications.

I was driving to Oklahoma City to work and heard it on the radio.

I was just 6 yrs old going to Elementary in Syracuse, when the class heard one teacher tell another teacher to turn the tv in our classroom. Me and my classmates were unfortunate to watch the second plane hit the towers, all of cry because none knew what was going on. I'll never forget that day, but I tried to forgive but that day a lot of children became orphans, wife and husbands become widows. That's something no one should forgot and forgive.

KLTV 7

Rene has been downgraded to a Tropical Depression, but that looks to be temporary. Paulette remains a Tropical Storm. It looks like Paulette may get closer to the U. S. Mainland, however, should still turn north, away from the East Coast. More to come. ...
