Where Were You?

We Were on our way to work. At that time The Hubs and I were in college and worked at the Fresno State Dairy. I was the calf manager and I was running behind that day. We heard it on the radio and just couldn't grasp was was happening. I will NEVER forget that day.

Since today is the anniversary of the September 11 attacks I am doing something a little different. Instead of my traditional Friday Five I am doing 5 things I felt that day:

I felt:

1. Disbelief
2. Scared
3. Sadness
4. Anger
5. Sorrowful

I will never forget what happened and will always remember how I felt that day. God Bless the people who lost their lives that day. God bless their families. God Bless the service men who have fought and lost their lives and those who continue to protect our country. We love you and thank you.

Where were you? How did you feel? God Bless.

I was asleep in bed when it happened. I found out as the 2nd plane hit the 2nd tower. I was in shock and scared to take the BART train into San Francisco as one plane was still missing.

I made my first video with my video camera come check it out.

I was at work! Just remember feeling scared, I wanted to go home and call all my loved ones. Shame so many lives were lost and for what? Sad and senseless!

I was watching a morning show when it happened so I did see that second plane hit. I was glued to the tv that day and stayed home. What a horrible, horrible time.

I missed the initial report of the first plane because I was getting ready for work, but on my way to work I heard the reports from a radio station. The DJ's weren't playing any music, they were just talking about it, and I was pulling in at work when the DJ's started yelling and going crazy because a second plane had hit. I was in shock. I was glued to the TV for a week until I made myself stop watching. I couldn't watch anymore. I felt so helpless and was deeply saddened. It's amazing how we can remember certain things that have taken place in our lives.

I was in total disbelief when someone told me, and thought it was just a horrible accident until I saw that second plane hit!

Definitely something I will never forget!

We have the same hair style that is great.

Okay on that day I was putting on my makeup with the first plane hit. I was on my way to class. Got there t.v.'s on but we still went to class. I worked an after school program in the afternoon and we were there to show some comfort for the children. It was a sad day.

I had just got laid off from my job the day before. I was in my car when I heard someone on the radio say "We are going to stop playing music right now and pray for our nation." I knew right there something was wrong. I was in shock and disbelief when I saw the TV. How could anybody do something like this?

I had taken an early bus to work that day, so stopped off at Burger King for some breakfast. The clerk that waited on me asked if I had heard about the plane crash. It must have been shortly after the first plane crashed into the WTC. There was no speculation yet, so she didn't know anything more. I left BK to begin the 1-mile trek to my job. I was still teaching preschool then and when I walked into the center I knew immediately that something horrible had happened when I saw the shock registered on my co-workers faces, who were all standing in front of a tv set up in our director's office.

At first I remember just being in utter shock, not believing this could have possibly happened. Then, I felt everything you felt throughout the day and remember sitting glued to the tv that evening watching all of the coverage and crying my eyes out!

I'm with you Amy, God bless all of the victims from that day, their families and all of our service men and women fighting for our country! And God Bless America!

I can't believe it's been 8 years already. I was asleep in bed, and my phone was ringing like crazy. My sister woke me from my slumber to tell me about it and made me watch the news. I thought I was watching some movie about the end of the world or something. Then I saw the 2nd plane hit. I still remember watching it in disbelief. Later that week, I had a nightmare about it, and woke up struggling to breathe because I dreamt I was caught up in a cloud of black smoke. I can't even imagine how horrible it must have been for those people. It is something we will never forget.

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. :) Have a great day!

Who can forget. It seemed unreal. It couldn't be happening but it was.
WE knew our world was about to change.

I was in the car on my way to work when i heard the news about the first plane. At that time, I was the manager of a clothing store. I ran inside and turned on the TV in the backroom. Then I saw the second plane hit. I had to open the store so I took the TV out of the backroom and set it on the counter of the store behind the register. Some women came in and wanted to shop, but i was too in shock to help them. I just stood there watching the TV.

The president of our company closed all of our stores nationwide, so i closed up shop and went home. I cried all day. That day was also my best friend's birthday. Little celebrating was done that evening.
