      where were you 9-11-01

      I got married 9-8-01 and we were flying to Florida for the Disney cruise package. We had just landed and everything closed down with no idea what was going on. We were in flight when they got hit. Everything closed down, even Disney World.

      I was working on a small housing tract in Oceanside. I was in the slow process of installing a new stereo in my truck so I didn't hear any news on it until about 8am when I called me wife to see how her day was going. When it first came to my attention that it was terrorism and it finally hit home I was sitting in traffic on San Marcos Blvd at about 12pm and everybody was in a panic; driving over medians, sidewalks, and into on coming traffic just to get where ever they were going (in a hurry). There was a U.T. paper guy in the middle of the road handing out free mid-day news papers detailing the day. It's been packed away since then, but to the best of my memory, the headline read, "HIJACKED." I was like, "OH S**T!"

      I stumbled out of bed (I was home-schooled, I had slept in late ) and was walking out into the kitchen when I heard the TV on and went to find out what was up...

      I was getting ready for work, like I always am at that time. I was sitting on the edge of my bed putting my socks on with the TV on, but muted, when the second plane hit the towers. It was surreal.

      i was underwater on a submarine. we kept getting very sketch reports, everyone onboard thought it was a "war drill". 2 weeks later we pulled into Guam and found out it was all real. very crazy to pull in and see all the photos and reactions of what happened, when all along we thought we were prepping for an exercise. then, it was off to war.

      I remember waking up and going into our computer room and see the twin towers on MSN and reading it and thinking wow. Woke my husband out of bed and we watching awe and disgust as the news unfolded on TV. I got calls from fellow students saying classes were canceled...I was at SDSU at the time.

      I was getting ready for school (i think i was a junior in hs) when my parents got a phone call saying to turn on the tv. We turned it on and saw one of the towers burning. Went to schoool where our teachers let us watch the news pretty much all day.

      at home and waking up i was checking my email when a friend in fl immediate messengered me asking if i knew we were being attacked....i was glued to the tv all day, very surreal. 4 days later i was working on the pile at ground zero pulling pieces of american bodies out from the mess while below us was a free burning mass...something i'll never forget nor should anyone.
