    Where were you when you first heard about the planes hitting the towers?


    I was at work and my mom called me. I ran to the TV in the break room, and there was a group standing around watching it happen. They closed the office in the morning and let everyone go home. I remember DH and I watching the coverage that evening in our apartment. So much has changed in our lives since then -- house, kids, job, etc. It still seems hard to believe it was 11 years ago, though.

    I was getting ready for work when I first heard about it. When I got to work, it was on the radio. I work for the government so we were all sent home and I turned on the tv and watched it. A friend of mine lives in Maryland but works in DC so I called him. Turns out it was his day off and he hadn't heard so he turned his tv to the same station as mine.

    My now husband was sitting in a coffee shop before he went to work. He thought they were showing a movie before he realized it was really happening.

    I was pulling into the parking lot at work when I heard the first plane hit. At the time didn't know was intinial. After we heard the 2nd plan hit someone went home and brought back a 13" black and white TV. We were glued to the TV all day.
