Where were you when you heard about 9-11?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 11, 2006
“I was in Colorado Springs on my way to the Denver Gem and Mineral Show. I woke up in the morning and turned on the TV. The first plane had already hit and I actually saw the second plane hit the building, and I’ll never forget it. I just couldn’t believe it was happening. It was very traumatic.”
“I was working on someone’s plumbing in south Lawrence and I heard about it on NPR. I couldn’t believe it, so I asked someone else at the job site. When I found out it was true, I took the day off and went home to try and absorb it all.”
“I was in my freshman English class when my principal told us what happened over the intercom. We spent the rest of the day watching the news and talking about it in class.”
“I was in my dorm room at the University of Missouri. The first tower had already fallen. It seemed pretty out of this world, because we usually never have to experience anything like it here in America.”
