I was working motors on a special Traffic Enforcement, multi-agency detail. Our job was to issue citations to anyone violating traffic laws at selected schools, due to it being the first week of school. After seeing the carnage on TV, I told my boss that I refused to issue any citations, because it just wasn't the right thing to do. I got my butt in trouble, but to this day I have no regrets in my decision. And yes, my former boss is still an ***!

I was at an Insurance and Finance conference in Orlando, FL. I had had dinner with a vendor and several other clients from Marsh, Guy Carpenter and several other companies with offices in the WTC the night before. At 8:50 or so that morning every pager, beeper and cell phone in the room starting going off...by lunch time that afternoon many of the colleagues of those people were among the dead and missing. What I remember most is the feeling of guilt felt by some that only by the grace of God they were 1,000 miles from their offices in New York City that day.

The next 2 days were spent driving a rental car from Orlando to New Jersey since all air travel was grounded. Stopped in Fayetteville NC for breakfast on 9-13 and things were rolling already.

I was in 7th grade, my mom was driving me to school and they were talking about it on the radio, I didn't really know what was going on and we didn't watch the news that day in school, so I had no idea until I got home and my brother was watching it on TV even then I couldn't really comprehend it, I just new that something bad had happened and a lot of people had died.

I was in eighth grade. I remember being in science/math class when the principal came over the intercom announcing an accident and that we were going to have a prayer. About fifteen minutes later he announced that it wasn't an accident. We spent the rest of the day watching the television.

I was a junior in high school and was typing up a lab report in electronics shop.

I had just gotten off a 12 hour night shift and had a 45 minute drive ahead of me to get home. I had picked up some coffe and a breakfast bisket and was catching a "power nap" in my car in the parking lot of a Wildlife Area near where I work. I was half awake when the radio host started talking about the report of the first plane hitting as if it had been a freak accident. A short time later they siad a second plane had hit, removing any thought of an accident. I was wide awake at that point and hurried home so I could watch the news. It was a life changing day.

I had just finished a 12 hour night shift at the Halifax airport where I was an Aircraft mechanic. Watched everything unfold on CNN. I then got called back to work to help do security sweeps on different aircraft. Removing/opening panels. Inspecting for any abnormalities.
