5 years on , Pay your respects

I remeber where i was when i was told .

My mate told me after my last lesson that a teacher disturbed his lesson and told eevryone that there was a incident in New York , everyone thought he was kidding.

I got home and my mum was glued to the TV and thats when the 2nd plane struck.

I will never forget.

well wishes for the family's on this difficult day

I hear ya Vaz,
Back on September 11TH. 2001, I had finished-up doing my aerobics when my mother called.
She told me to turn on CNN because the World Trade Center had been hit and the US was under attack.
I turned on the tv and I couldn't believe my eyes because all I saw was the first tower up in smoke when the 2nd plane struck the other tower.

I'm a reporter for our local paper. I woke up that morning to the radio saying "A plane just hit a building . . . "

As I got up, I said to myself, "Wow. That'll be a big story."

Then I got to work and saw everything unfolding. I couldn't believe it. Even in our city of 120,000 people in Kansas, we were able to localize tons of stories. Everybody was taking it personal, as they should. I remember going to the gas station during the day and just looking at other people around me. We all kind of nodded at each other like "You're my fellow American. Let's get through this together." It was a cool feeling.

My prayers go out to all those who lost a loved one five years ago, and certainly all who helped on that day. I also pray for our country that we'll continue to work toward becoming a better country and not lose site of our potential.

I remember it was a couple a days before I started my junior year of college so I was at my parents...I had just woken up and was a little groggy and my little sister started telling me about some plane that had hit a building. I remember not understanding exactely what she was telling me and being a little annoyed with her. That's when I heard my other sister yell out as the second plane hit.

We live in Los Angeles and my mom was staying with us and was scheduled to fly home that morning to San Jose. At a little before 6am our phone ran. It woke us all. No one calls at that hour and we knew it couldn't be good news. It was my mom's husband calling to tell us to turn on CNN. We were all sitting and watching at the foot of the bed when the second plane hit.

I worked in the tallest building west of the Mississippi in downtown Los Angeles and was scheduled to go to work that morning but as it turned out the markets didn't open for another week. Until I left that job, I hated having to go to work in that skyscraper. It was reported that there was another plot to fly into that building.

It is a very different world now.

My prayers to everyone.

My love to NYC.

I remember most of the day so vividly, as if it were yesterday. I got a call very early in the morning as well, and the sound of the phone ringing at that hour absolutely terrified me.

Some friends were in NYC that day, and I stayed home by the TV and phone for hours, desperately hoping for good news. I eventually heard from all of them.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who lost a loved one that day. We will never forget.

I can vividly remember the complete sense of shock I felt when I heard. I got confused with the time differences at first, thinking it was around 6.00 am in New York when it happened and so there wouldn't be many people in the towers and the planes would have been quite empty and then the horror of realising that there were actually thousands of people in there.

My thoughts are with all Americans and all those affected by the tragedy.
