I just walked out from a meeting at the back of 3 in the afternoon, and noticed it was on all the TV's in our call center.
It was amazing how quite the phones went for the couple of hours. Anyone complaining on the phone were told what was happening, it put a few things into perspective for them.
When I went home we had to explain to our daughter what was happening.
We were transfixed to the TV for hours.

I just had arrived at work. The boss had already had his wife bring a TV to watch. About 10 minutes after I got there the first building collapsed.

Heard about it when I got into my car to go to work. Ran inside in time to see the second plane hit. Then went to work and watched them fall on the television.

Stop being a dick.

You are adding nothing of value to this topic and are being glib with relation to the death of thousands of people.

I was playing out with friends when a neighbor asked me check the news. My initial reaction was, USA got back what they deserved. But I was just a kid & I value life more today. That was a tragic incident.
Something changed after Bombay blasts in 2006 & I look at every Muslim with an eye of suspicion.

You do realise, Ottawa Gamerz, that you are just coming across as a dick. Nobody is thinking "Wow, he's making a valid political point" or "Hmmm, maybe he's right", it's more "This isn't the place but he's too much of an jerk to know that" and "Hmmm, we've seen lot's of childish idiots get attention this way before". Go to New York, stand in Times Square and say what you are saying here - show the courage of your convictions if you genuinely believe the bull**** you are shilling!

I was in class when it happened... biology if I remember correctly. My high school reacted by telling every teacher to shut off televisions, confiscate every students cell phone (who had them out at the time), not allow students on computers, and not talk about the subject until school let out. The kids with parents who died in the trade center were silently pulled from classes.

That's stupid. Not everyone is a terrorist. The media only shows you the extreme end of the spectrum.

What the hell is wrong with you? Thankfully not all canadians are as much of a dick as you are. Have some respect and stop acting like a child.

It's a valid reaction to the crap we were fed afterwards!

I agree but I have become a cynic. I have a few muslims in my neighborhood & their attitude towards the general society is not helping their case either.
