    That's OK Pickle. I can't watch any of the shows that are on about it though I want to get up and watch the memorial...I'm sure there are people here who were directly affected by it on a personal level and I won't intrude but

    I was working for a law firm in Connecticut. At first I thought it was a small plane that hit and we were told to keep working. The TV was on in the conference room and many of the attorneys were in there when the second plane hit. Half the staff ended up going home. I stayed which I know now was probably the best for me because I was able to work my anxiety off. After work I do not remember much except I was glued to the TV. My husband worked for an insurance company and one of his co-worker's wife was on the plane that hit the Pentagon. A few days later we found out that my husband's cousin worked for Cantor Fitzgerald and his wife was 7 months pregnant with their first child. Every anniversary is sad but this one is the hardest for many of us.

    Everyone keep safe. There are a lot of civil servants out there tonight who will not be sleeping.

    As is Concerned Papa, I'm looking forward to hearing the accounts and memories of other WS'ers. It will certainly be interesting to know what we were all doing 'together' on that day.
    I remember 9/11/01 like it was yesterday. At that time I would get up around 5:30AM to get ready for work. I had my TV on and saw the news of a plane crashing into one of the World Trade Center buildings. My brother called me on the phone and asked if I was watching the news. Yes I was. I told him that I remembered that a B25 bomber had hit the Empire State Building in 1945 and maybe something similar had just happened. But I recalled that crash happened in dense fog, it was clear as a bell from what I could see today.Maybe a pilot of a small plane had a heart attack? My brother and I were talking things like this over when the second plane hit. I said this is no accident. This was a deliberate act. We broke off are conversation and I finished getting ready for work.I got to my truck, turned on the radio just when the first tower fell.I was the first one to work and I had brought a small black and white TV with me from home. Back then the internet and live streaming were a bit primitive. So I plugged in that little TV at my counter/work station and watched the events unfold. As coworkers arrived we all huddled around that small TV and watched the second tower fall. It was very hard to get anything done that day. A day I will never forget.

    On 9/11/01 I had a child that had been born 9 weeks early in the NICU of our hospital. I just went back and found my journal entries for that day and the next.... I thought I would share with you.

    Mommy rushed to get here for your 8:30 AM feeding. I was able to watch your nurse Becky take your vitals and I got to change your diaper. i held you and rocked you in my arms until you fell asleep. When you are able to take 1700 cc's they will be able to move you our of your incubator.

    9/12/01
    This morning we got a call from your Doctor. You are not doing well and have some sort of infection. We have spent all day with you and hope to know what is going on soon. You are having a hard time breathing and the nurse said you may have to get some help with a respirator.

    9/13/01
    The doctors have you on heavy antibiotics. they have given you morphine to make you more comfortable. You are septic and have called in a specialist to identify what is making you so sick.



    The events of 9/11/01 impacted us greatly......I recall asking the NICU staff to explain their evacuation plan in case of an act of terrorism. I could not imagine life without our child.

    I wonder if KC ever had those feelings?
    My son wasn't born for 2 more months ,but the entry could be identical. Those phone calls : (

    I think almost everyone had a connection to 9/11 .My Son -In-Law's sister worked in the Towers and we didn't know for hours what happened to her. She was late that day and had just gotten off the ferry when people coming from the scene told her to go back.

    I also work in DC about once a month. Several of my co-workers and my BIL live in the neighborhood just a few blocks behind the Capitol BLDG.They have stories of walking around ,just in tears ( grown men),not knowing what would happen. It's chilling and we talk about it often. It was a defining moment for all.

    There are names that have become well known as heroes that day ,like Todd Beamer , but so many others ,whose names we will never know ,who's acts of kindness and courage have gone unseen,also died that day .

    I doubt if was even a blip on Casey's radar.
    Always ,just my opinion

    I was shopping a few weeks ago for my new little niece Ella and saw some cute WTP dresses . I didn't even realize it but I was standing there with my eyes filling up .
    I'm sorry Winnie but I still can't look at you right now .

    Somehow, I feel more compelled to talk with my friends about that day than Casey Anthony or her family.
    It was a day like no other...bright blue sky...the type of day you wish you could bottle...it was that beautiful outside. Then the horror of it all...the smoke...not knowing who was safe...and who was gone.
    Ten years later and I still cry for those we lost.
    We remember.

    and...the people who evacuated, went down avg of 30+ floors (hard enough on the legs) then had to walk home (no subway, cars, phone svc).
    When the North Tower was hit, the alarms went off in the South Tower. People exited the building (like a fire drill)...only to be given the all clear to go back.

    I am glad golf delayed the Anthony BS for one more day. Thank God Sept. 11th can't be ruined by the A's. I would have totally lost it if their interview was the same day. Thankfully, it's now two days later. And I am not even going to think about the A's tomorrow. They will not overshadow such an important and tragic day in US history.
    Not THAT US Open...it's the OTHER one...the grand slam tennis event.
    This post made me smile Thanks...I needed it!

    I was getting my son ready for school. he was 6 at the time. my friend from work called me and screamed out something that sounded like highjackedplaneintoworldtradecenter. I had not been awake more then 15 minutes or so. I stupidly said what world trade center. what she was saying didnt make any sense. she said there were two more planes highjacked. again, stupidly, I said so? she wasnt making any SENSE. she said turn on the news!!!

    I turned on the news in time to see the second plane hit. maybe they were re-showing the footage and it had already hit, I still dont know. I dropped the phone. it was green, a cordless. I remember the metallic green of the phone and the footage on the news, over and over. I was so shocked I couldnt see any colour in the tv, only black and white.

    we didnt live far from the airport. nothing was allowed to fly that day. no one was outside. it was silent in a way I never heard before or since. there were flags at half-mast everywhere I looked. our area had a large population of middle easterns. the shops owned by them were flying the biggest US flags of all. my ex called them insurance. it made me laugh but it wasnt true. they were as crushed as everyone else.

    three weeks later I saw ground zero. the dust hadnt settled yet, you couldnt even tell time had passed. everyone around it was quiet and somber. there were flags everywhere. there were broken hearts everywhere.
