Where were you on 9/11?
Posted 9/11/15
Today marks the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the U.S, it was a tragic day i was only in kindergarten but i remember the day vividly when my teacher frantically ran to turn on the TV and i saw a building on fire, i also remember my P.E teacher running around the school yelling ''WE GOT HIT!'' and even though i was just a child i can still remember the eerie feeling in the air as if the whole country's emotions could be felt in the atmosphere. So where were you on 9/11 what do you remember?what was going through your head as you saw it happen?

I am ashamed to say. I was downloading porn when I first heard. Purely for research

Working as a temp at BankNorth in Lewiston, ME. No work was done that day

I had just gotten out of the military a few months earlier due to family issues. The ship I was supposed to be on was sitting in the Persian Gulf.

First college math test. The live new feed was on just before the test began, but no one was paying attention or understood what was happening as the volume was on mute.

I was in my 4th grade classroom. My teacher got a call at her desk and I remember watching as she slowly broke down into tears. I was confused, the next 20 minutes or so consisted of parents picking up their kids, the rest of us were sent home on buses. When I got home my mother was standing in front of the large TV in the living room showing the two buildings smoking. She embraced me with one arm and rubbed my shoulder as I watched with a tinge of confusion. The building started collapsing soon after and that's when the sense of dread and terror washed over me. I wasn't entirely aware at the time, but the screams were real and so was the panic etched on my mother's face.

That's how I remember 9/11.

I was at home getting ready for school (1st grade). I remember looking at the tv screen, not really understanding what happened.

I was one years old, but my parents saw it on TV and just shook their heads. God knows what I was doing.
