I was at work, minding my own business, trying not to muck about with international affairs, when a few latecoming co-workers mentioned that one of the towers had been hit. The first thing that came to my mind was the crash into the Empire State building. Not 5 minutes later, another co-worker charged in and told us about the second tower. From that point on, we all huddled around one streaming newscast(no TV's), and an IRC connectin for the rest of the day....

I was sitting in my 9th grade Chemistry class, when all of a sudden the computer lab teacher came in and said, "Turn on the TV. The World Trade Center is on fire." as though it were the most normal thing in the world. I could be wrong, but the chemistry teacher said, "Cool!" and turned on the TV. It was then when I realized the extent of what just happened. By that time it was after the second plane crashed, and they were showing the footage of the crash. I kept thinking to myself, "Whoever did this wanted everyone to see the second plane crash live." The strange thing is, my emotions never really changed through the whole event. It was only after that I started to really think about it.
