      I was doing some rig inspections north of Ft. Worth. I got a call on my cell phone and in less than an hour, all the planes were grounded. Very eerie not to have a lot of airplane traffic that close to DFW. I went back to my motel in Decatur, TX, and watched the news and saw the planes hit. I called off the inspections and went back home. No one knew what was happening for several hours.

        I was at work at my taxidermy shop when the first news of a plane hitting the first tower was on the news, but with very little information at that time. I figured then it was a small single engine plane for some reason, the magnitude of the entire matter was not given until about an hour later, but details still rather sketchy. As the day went on I was watching the news when it was shown live as the second plane hit the other tower. Of course we did not know who was involved at that time, but I will never forget the revenge I felt, but did not know then who or where to direct it to ! The live news coverage from that time on will never be forgotten. All those who think Muslim threats are no longer a possibility are completly insane and better not ever forget 9/11 !!!! If we ever make an error on our acceptance of these people, I hope it is at their expense and not ours again. And yet we are seeing people in this country today who are thinking open borders are no problem and that criticize those who want this country better protected, go figure. But then you can not fix STUPID !!!

          I was in a paint store picking up paint for a job my crew was doing when I received a call from my wife telling me a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center ! As she was telling me about it she yelled oh my god another plane just hit the second tower ! I told the people behind the counter that the World Trade Center was hit by two planes and they had literally no reaction. Driving back to the job I started hearing accounts on the radio and told my men to go home. It was rare that all the guys were on the same job. Like CRM it was strange not seeing a vapor trail in the sky for a couple days.

              It was Freshman year of high school. I was in Ms. Kablinskies U.S. History class. She escorted us to the next building over to get to a room with a TV in it. We watched as the entire thing unfolded. As I was opening the door for the other kids to get into the next building I swung the heavy door over my foot and ripped the top of my sneaker open and tore off my big toe nail. I sat down to watch the news events unfold and had the exact sentiments that BHR expressed. I remember I was bitter mad. When I got up from my school desk after watching the show the teacher realized there was a 3x3 area of blood under the desk. I had tried to keep it from her so I could continue watching the news.

                      Keeping a eye on it but I fear it’s going to hit the Carolinas . Wish all those poor folks the best.

                        Kids in school and wife at work, I was on my first off day from a 3 night round of 6p-6a shifts.
                        I had fixed myself some breakfast and coffee and turned on the news to eat.
                        They were talking about a small plane that had just flown into the world trade center.
                        There were gasps of horror from the set of the news show as they showed the plane hitting the second tower.
                        That's when they (news agencies) began putting together the WTC, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa.
                        Soon thereafter, I watched both towers collapse on live TV.
                        Didn't get much yard or garden work done that day.

                          I was a Corporal on active duty in the Marine Corps. I was stationed at Indian Head Naval Surface Warfare Center . Indian head, MD 26 miles south of Washington, D.C. . I was walking towards the shop just getting done working on an LVS it’s a big truck the Marines use its an off road semi. My buddy Sgt. Butler stuck his head out the door and said they just crashed a plane into the WTC. I was stationed with Chemical Biological Nuclear Incident Response Force. Well we kicked it high gear after that the details are to long and to many write.

                            To this day I still feel the same way. and with all of the first responders now on their death bed. It's like Bin Laden reaching out from his grave for revenge!!!

                                One side of this argument has tons of evidence, while the other side has none.
