    The generation before us had JFK.
    Everyone remembered where they were when JFK was shot.
    I think 9/11 is our generation's "where were you"

    I was clueless about it until after the 2nd tower fell.

    Driving to work southbound on the NJ Turnpike. I worked in Kearny NJ at the time. I was listening to Howard and they mentioned the first tower as I was getting on the TP. Could see the smoke out of the driver's side window. By the time I got to work, the second plane had hit.

    I worked at a smallish printing company at the time in an industrial park in Kearny. Nobody worked that day. We all got up on the roof of the building and watched and listened to radio coverage of what was going on.

    Just got back to my house with my daughter after dropping my son off at school. I had let her play for a while because it was such a beautiful day. I turned on Howard and heard him say that two planes had hit the World Trade Center and one had hit the Pentagon. Turned on the TV and watched the horrible news. I listened to Howard as long as he was on that day. He helped me keep a little bit of calm by staying on the air as long as he did.

    Arguing with a friend that if al kieda followed football they'd be raider fans. My buddy said they'd be NY Jets fans.

    I was wrong.

    I was in class. The girl sitting to my left got a phone call that a plane had hit one of the towers. Then word spread around the school about the 2nd. They let us leave early. The guy sitting to my right signed up for delayed entry into the Marines the next day. He died in Iraq in January of 2005. He was only 10 days away from finishing his 2nd tour. He was blown up along with two other guys by an IED.

    I was listening to Howard stern just before work. They were talking about Pam Anderson. I think Stuttering J interrupted and said a plane had hit one of the towers. Then they went back to talking about Pam.
