Re: Morning of 9/11 what were you doing?
For 30 years, I always took my birthday off from work and 9/11/2001 was no expception. I'd turned 49 shortly after midnight and was sleeping in late, or so I thought.

Like the OP, my Mom called and said "something's happened in NY"; CLICK.

I turned on the TODAY Show, saw the crawl on the screen and the smoke from the first hit and immediatly popped a VHS tape into the machine. I'd seen history unfold LIVE on TV before when Ruby shot Oswald and then-as-now was sucked into the tragedy as we all first wondered "what went wrong?" and then, "who could do this kind of thing?"

And -just like back in 1963- I was glued to that screen trying to absorb the enormity of what I was seeing. It had a surreal quality that part of my brain insisted, "this can't be happening" while the greater rational lobes slapped me in the face and screamed, "Oh, yes it IS!"

I ended up filling four tape cassettes over the next 24 hours as my recorder constantly whirred away -switching from network to network in the process- watching our stunned nation as it stopped in it's tracks.

And history repeated all over again.

It has come out that Bush Sr. was the mastermind of 9/11 not Osama Bin Laden?

The Saudis helped the Bushes pull off 9/11.

Mossad gets mentioned, but "Israel" wasn't involved. That's not to say there weren't Intel connections.

Many Americans were also involved, including many in the Media. it was planned like a live TV broadcast.

I was assigned to the second shift but had to work a night shift to cover for someone who was sick. I was chosen because the 11th & 12th were my days off so I could recover better.

I was in the patrol room waiting for the CID Sarge to come in so I could discuss a case with him. He walked in and I said, "Hey Sarge" and he said, "No, come with me." We went into his office to watch reporting on the plane that hit the tower.

World changed forever when the second plane hit.

Days off cancelled, vacation cancelled switched to twelve hour shifts. I didn't get sleep for nearly 60 hours but was out with an MP5.

Started that day telling my family goodbye every morning like I'd never see them again.

I was in the seventh grade and had no idea who Osama Bin Laden was or even what the word terrorism meant. I remember the words America is under attack circulating through the hallways. Being the naive children that we were we assumed the Chinese or Russians were bombing Manhattan. Who else could have attacked us? I understand why the 90’s are regarded as the great last decade.

At that time I was the producer & sidekick on a talk show on the radio.

We got the news pretty quickly and had satellite receivers in the control room since we were a news talk station.

I saw the second plane hit live.

My wife started rolling a VHS tape when all this happened, watching the tape today is pretty amazing.

The host of the show I produced used to work in the Pentagon and knew people to call, so we jumped on the issue and that's all we did for days, report on what happened and what was going on.

I think I pulled a 12 hour board shift that day.

We later did a fund raiser for the Red Cross for the families and victims of the event and raised over $35k in 2 days.

I was active duty in the Army and in the field when the towers fell. Our 1SG came out to where we were and broke the news. We were immediately recalled to the garrison and put on lock down for the next three days as they determined what was next. We were all told get ready for war...

Re: Morning of 9/11 what were you doing?
I was working in an IBM call center at the time, doing desktop, network, and operating system support. I heard a coworker of mine a row over say that a plane hit the world trade center. I wandered over, saw what had happened and went back to my desk and called my wife. We were on the phone together watching live as the second plane hit. It was surreal. I am a former firefighter/paramedic and the loss of the FDNY 343 that day still hits close to home. They sent us home from work early that day because they didn't know if more attacks were coming, plus, in light of what had just happened, suddenly no one cared about their computer problems that day. Calls into the call center dried up immediately.

The weird part is, I was the lead on the Morgan Stanley contract and their calls would come in electronically in a batch. We had a bunch come in that day for the WTC. I talked to a supervisor as to how to handle those. I ended up closing those tickets, just noting that those machines no longer exist. Really weird. I talked to a Morgan Stanley guy several weeks later who had been there that day. He was standing outside the building smoking a cigarette when the first plane hit. He said he just took off running. When he finally stopped, he had no idea where he was. Fight or flight kicked in and he chose option 2.

I was walking around and around in the living room yelling at the tv, "What are you Hiding"? and "Why do you keep doing that"?
I was referring to the tv banners running at the bottom. They had them stacked up so you couldn't see anything. I had never seen that before it took up over half the screen in scrolling news banners.

I kept noticing how cartoonish looking and animated the whole "live" images looked. Only later did I see that it was a blue sky day and not all the weird overcast overlays of the canned video we all watched that was anything but "LIVE".

Working as a freight broker. Had dropped my 71 Super Beetle in to get a new starter. Went back to work and it was on the little black & white tv in our break room. My boss was from NY and she says "that wasn't an accident" after the 1st plane hit. Then the next missile hit.
When my car was done the whole town looked crazy... people in a daze or something. I had the notion to get in my car and just leave, never come back...the world is too fucked up, our Gov is trying to kill us because what they said happened couldn't have ever happened.

I was sleeping because I had just gotten home from a business trip overseas, (Korea and Singapore).

My wife came into the room and told me a plane hit the WTC, and I just assumed it was a Cessna accident of something. Then my wife came in and told me another plane hit the other tower...I was up then.

Re: Morning of 9/11 what were you doing?
I owned a liquor store in a major mid western city. Tuesday was typically delivery day. Lots of beer, spirits and wine coming in. Gearing up with Oktoberfest beers and fall seasonal liquors. Was at home getting ready for work. Turned on the TV to CNN and watched for a few minutes. Hopped into the shower, which was in my basement, around 8:30AM and came back upstairs and saw an image on the T.V. I just couldn't explain. I saw one of the world trade centers towers (the north one) with smoke pouring upwards out of it. Judging from the fire, I knew almost immediately that a plane had hit. I was thinking, "Always wondered when a plane would go off course and hit a skyscraper, now it's happened." I was in awe and fascination and then this weird feeling started to go through me. "Something's not right here." "This isn't right." I switch over to CNBC because I watch the stock market coverage and I like their live feeds better and now people start talking about reports of a plane has hit the world trade center. So now press helicopters and rescue helicopters are flying all over the area around the Battery and at 9:03 this 767 (were a Boeing/Spirit town) slammed into the south tower from the side. Then the realization of shock and awe hit me. This shit was deliberate. And I began to wonder how many more. Then I got a HUGE psychic impression that has happened to me twice before in 1985 and 1986. The psychic impression was clear and blatant. "The buildings are going to collapse." I wanted to call someone and tell them but did not know who. I had to go open my store at 10:00 CST and I usually pre-open at 9:00 CST. So I get into my truck and start heading to the store with NPR on in the background and that's when I hear the commentators state that the south tower is collapsing. I go in watch the TV and watch them play that south tower over and over. I open early and continue watching the TV still glued for about 30 minutes and a customer comes in and I tell him the North tower is going to collapse here real soon. Look up at TV with the customer and that is when the north tower comes pancaking down. The weather in my Midwestern prairie town was also "severe clear and perfect calm" that morning. And later when all the planes were grounded the skies felt weird.

I was in grade 5. Teacher cam running into the class room pushing a tv on a stand and told us to watch. She turned it on just as the second plane was hitting the tower (live). At first we all thought it was movie... and then when we realized it wasn't, you could literally feel the room grow cold.

Re: Morning of 9/11 what were you doing?
I was driving into work. Tool's Undertow was on for the drive.

A coworker in the parking lot told me about tower 1. We all huddled around the TVs inside in time to see #2 get hit.

This was in DC burbs, about 2mi from Dulles airport.

Driving out of the area to go home was really bizarre. There was manpower everywhere - local & state cops, military & feds at every intersection.

Re: Morning of 9/11 what were you doing?
I was at my barber shop, getting a haircut.

All of the TVs went to it and we all sat and watched until the towers collapsed.

That was the longest I ever sat in a barbers chair.

I got up, half done and headed toward the door, four of the barbers jumped on me and wrestled me to the floor, the other one ran and locked the doors and barred them.

I was headed to the truck and they all knew I had my rifle in there with 6 loaded mags in an LBV.

There was a "mosque" about a half mile away, I was headed out to get some retribution for sure.

I had just gotten out of the ARMY and was no stranger to sending ragheads to meet their hell.

They most likely saved me from a long prison sentence..

or.. maybe not. Who knows at this point.

The same "mosque" produced the "orlando" shooter...

Re: Morning of 9/11 what were you doing?
I just left my boyfriend's house headed for work.....

Sept 11, 2001 - Southwestern Ontario, Canada.

I heard it in the car on the way. Could not believe my ears.

Got to work, we all assumed it was an awful accident.

Then we heard that the second plane hit.

The execs and office staff piled into the boardroom where we could get a really cloudy CNN on the monitor.

My sales territory included NY, PA and MD. I was told I could not make any calls or bid any jobs that day, our calls should not jam desperately needed phone lines. Regardless, my rep in Somerset (15 mins from Shanksville) called me as we were bidding a job together that morning. He was in tears. He said the world forever changed that day. I was in tears. We hung up the phone and I felt an awful dread and emptiness. I got up to go home, I saw many of my coworkers had already left.

In 11 days I had to leave my children and get on a plane and fly to a convention as I so often did. But this time was woefully different. I was to fly to Atlanta where I would be staying at what was marketed as 'The Tallest Hotel In The Western Hemisphere"... the Westin Peachtree. Lovely.

On Sept 13 I took a three day road trip along Lake Superior to heal my heart, get in touch with myself, and nature. I flew home from Winnipeg on Sept 16th. The tiny airport was full of military. There were security announcements on the PA system almost constantly. I had to use a spoon to spread the cream cheese on my bagel.

On Sept 22nd, our exec team was split across several flights to Atlanta, so that there weren't too many of us on one plane. Security at O'Hare was a LIVING NIGHTMARE. Four hours at the very least to get through. When we arrived at our TALL hotel, a guest in the lobby asked were I was from and thanked me for coming back to America. We were informed that we could change our higher floor rooms to lower floor rooms if it made us feel more comfortable. My room was on the 22nd floor. Outside my window at an almost stone's throw was the CNN building. I breathed a bit of a sigh of relief, thinking to myself that terrorists would need CNN intact therefore they would never strike this building I am in.

My rate of business travel declined significantly after that, at my own choosing.

I was out running errands that morning. I remember it was a beautiful day, not a cloud in a clear blue sky.

I knew something was up because they had the radio on and tuned to the news at the post office, but I couldn't figure out the details because some woman behind me was talking loudly over it. It wasn't until I got to my next stop when a guy had a TV set on (again unusual) and updated me. By that time, one of the towers had already fallen.

I got to work late, just in time for management to announce that they were sending everyone home because no one was going to get any work done that day, anyway.

Days later I found out that the guy who helped me usher my brother's wedding was on the plane that hit the Pentagon.

Re: Morning of 9/11 what were you doing?
I was in my 2nd year of engineering program at the University. I walked into the main lobby and a huge crowd was around the TV, some were crying, I had no idea, was a beautiful fall day. I said to a guy beside me what happened he said one plane hit the towers, as soon as he said that the 2nd hit on the live feed. People wailed and started screaming and crying. I was in shock. A fella then said a plane was above Morgantown WV which was very close to where I was at that was the Shanksville plane I believe. We sat in class watching when the buildings fell down all of us knew instantly that 10,000 or more would die from environmental exposures to radiological products, asbestos, VOCs, dusts et. al, and sat in horror weeks later as the EPA sent people and residents to their deaths by telling them the air was ok to breath. ONe of our professors volunteered he came back silent knowing what our regulatory agencies were doing that was a crime. Spent the rest of the week barely in school mostly drinking and drugging ourselves back to a state of bliss as the lies and deceit led us into war. I knew then all my worst fears as a child watching Waco burn were correct, our government was rogue and the world was lead by satanic forces. It turned the worm for me, the next 3 years I was a hardcore MDMA ketamine seeker trying to find the light in all the wrong places.

Working (of all things at that time, General Aviation), cryin' when news of first tower being 'hit,' me on the computer trying to find real news of WTF was happening instead of watching MSM, my hubby on phone w/ his mama and hollerin' when 2nd tower was 'hit.'

I sat down on couch cryin' my eyes out, knowing what was happening. Took a shot of whiskey, dried my eyes, blew my nose and got on the phone to small country airport telling folks they needed to be prepared for big metal to be diverted to our small airstrip as a result of FAA lock down. They thought I was cray-cray until news of the Pentagon 'hit' came on tv.

Sad day and even sadder days followed.
