    Where were you all on 9/11/2001?

    I was 19 and still living at home in California. I turned on the Stern show at around 9 a.m., and heard Cabbie talking about some shit going down at the World Trade Center. I confused it for a Best Of episode from the '93 bombing until I turned on my TV and saw Shepherd Smith covering the attack.

    I can remember it vividly , I was getting on the Ohio turnpike listening to Howard and hearing him say a small plane hit one of the twin towers , The rest went from there

    But the one thing i remember is at every dealership (i haul cars) the repair shop people were saying "Fuck them Towelheads" and "Turn the sand into glass" stuff ,It's kind of weird looking back on it , because , Nobody really knew who did it at the time , But somehow everyone knew it was the middle east .....

    My son signed up for the army after 9/11. He was with the 10th Mountain Division. He did a tour in Afghanistan when they pushed the Taliban out and then did two tours in Iraq.

    He's out of the service now and living in Hawaii. God Bless America

    I was 2 blocks away from the WTC on 9-11-01. The 2nd plane flew right over my head. Saw it all. The heat and the smell were like nothing I ever experienced.

    Saw peeps jump, felt the Towers fall and had to drop off a pier at Liberty State Park into a tugboat to get back to Hoboken.

    I lost 30 friends that day. Some close ones.

    Don't forget.

    Ever.

    I was in a waiting room in a doctor's office with my wife.
    They had a small tv set suspended from the ceiling with the sound muted.
    We saw one of the planes crashing into what my wife thought looked like one of the twin towers.
    All of these people in the waiting room with us were staring up at the set gape mouthed.
    I saw the Today Show cast looking kind of somber and it was like ...hell -10 in the morning... too late for the show to be on.
    I reached up and turned the audio on.
    Receptionist got all pissy and hustled around the door from her office area and reached up turned the set off.
    I said, "the hell you doing?" and reached up and turned it back on and then everyone in the room heard the news of the attack and word was coming in by this time about the Pentagon, etc.
    Receptionist didn't even have the wherewithal to apologize for being an asshole.

    Thanks DAWG. Lots of people I knew from working Downtown for 7 years. Some good friends from college also.

    I took the PATH subway from NJ everyday right to the WTC. I still can't believe those buildings are gone. They were massive.

    Sorry for your loss, man.
    My folks live in Manhattan and lost several of their friends who were working in the buildings at the time.
    It was a scary time.
    This country has never been the same.

    Thanks Senator. I agree. The country just hasn't seemed the same since.
