Where were you on 9/11?

144 posts in this topic

Emotionless and heartless. I hope TSA gives you special treatment next time you fly ;)

I don't do planes period. I do have a heart and emotions, I cried like a girl when my dad died that lasted for 12 years

My question is: Where were you on 9/11? Did it affect anyone personally?

On Times Square waiting for a tour through the NASDAQ MarketSite to start. Saw the second plane crash on TV within a huge crowd but nobody knew what was happening, so tour started anyway, plane crashed into the Pentagon, tour was cancelled, went outside, first tower collapsed, went to hotel, second one went down. Rest of the week me and my Dad were basically wandering aimlessly through an almost empty Manhattan waiting for the flight home. And we were in the WTC for the first time on Sunday. Creepy ****.

Home sleeping in bed...Yeah it was all over TV but, I didn't bother watching it not even cared to hear about it from others. I know when I was getting my class ring I had gotten a flag on one side and my mom said "You'll never forget what happened in September." tbh I told her I could care less what happened, and it doesn't affect me in any way shape or form...Harsh but true.

lol true

yes but your heartless cause you dont care about something that happened 11 yrs ago, even though there are MUCH worse things going on out there you have to care about this or your heartless.

I was living in Wales at the time. My family and I had just got back after going shopping (I remember buying Tribes 2 and being really excited about it) and shortly after getting back my Dad received a phonecall telling him to turn on the TV and switch to the news. We all watched the footage in disbelief, before seeing the second plane crash into the building live on TV - needless to say it was an incredibly memorable experience. I remember wondering what would happen next, as it seemed for hours that there was always something going on and new footage to be seen. We got in touch with my Mum who was at work at the DVLA and they had gone onto high alert because it's a government building - the UK was prepared for similar attacks happening here.

The sad thing is that the attacks were used to justify an illegal war which lead to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocents civilians in Iraq. While I initially had a lot of sympathy for the US that quickly evaporated.

Lets see Dad passed at 17, Grandmother died at 18 and my grandfather 4 months after and trying to stay focused on getting my diploma, Yeah to me those were way more important then Sept. 11. So there for I'm not heartless. Have a nice day sir and I do give you respect for being upfront.

Asleep here too. I didn't even know anything had happened until someone told me.

Also don't care...different reasons I'm sure.

im one of many who go on there merry day because 9-11 doesnt mean anything to us

we all live on the same planet, just because it's miles away from where you are, it should still mean something. you're human right?

I was working at the time that it all hit the news. I left work with a crate of beer and headed home, got indoors just as the second plane hit the tower. Strangely it is something that I remember. Do I care though? Not really, lots of things have happened in my life that affect me, this wasn't one of them. I appreciate people lost loved ones and friends in the tragedy, but I didn't so it's really had very little impact on my life or feelings.

At home watching the news with a very aware 4 year old who got the basics right away. Spent the rest of the day explaining the specifics of AQ etc. What got him most was the loss of the firefighters, cops etc. because there are so many in the family (grandfather = fire chief; uncle = firefighter/EMT; uncle = cop etc.) and that our military extended family would be going into action.

I remember working at an ISP at the time, tech support monkey on the phone and watching the live stream from CNN through bbc news. Can remember we left a message on the phones for anyone calling in that we wouldn't be taking any more calls (the owner of the small isp I worked for had family that worked in the towers and were lost).

Can still remember how harrowing it all seemed, even though I wasn't connected to the towers or even the city itself.

Living west of Toronto at the time, about to head to class as reports came in about the first tower. I ended up planted to my sofa for the rest of the day with tears in my eyes. I didn't know anyone personally affacted by the attacks, except for a friend's father, who was a local firefighter that went down with many others the next day to help out.

I remember that day VIVIDLY, and to be honest, it still gives me a lump in my throat.
