Where were you on September 11th, 2001?

On September 11th, 2001 I was in 4th grade and I remember I stayed home sick from school that day. I was bumming around watching tv when I got a phone call from my Dad telling me the twin towers were hit. I honestly had no idea what he was talking about until he came home and we turned on the news. The live coverage shown on every channel was horrifying to watch. I heard from my friends later that night that they had to lock down every classroom and that our school sent everyone home after lunch. I think it's important to think about where you were and what you were doing on this day because it serves as a reminder to remember the brave souls we lost and the ones who survived. So where were you?

I was in college on that day. I was getting ready to go to my 10 o'clock class and talking with my husband(then boyfriend) while watching the Today show. I remember vividly when the first planse struck the tower. All the host turned to look out the window, they they started videoing and the second tower was hit. My classes were cancelled because it was two blocks from the world trade center in Baltimore. The world was on alert. I will never forget. I was glued to the TV all day.

I was about 1 month old, and when my parents heard the news they turned on the tv and the radio and then we moved.
