Good Ole USA. NEVER BACK DOWN!!!
i was just outside the airport working,all the planes were grounded,it got very quiet.Nothing but one fighter jet circling the city at about 30,000 ft.
In the office, watching it unfold on internet and TV.
8th grade social studies class. we watched it on the news after the 1st plane hit. I got home and my mom had brought home a puppy for me. Still have him.
At home, watched it on TV
I showed up for a job interview moments after the first plane hit and was informed that there had been a terrible accident (little did they know). I guess the secend plane hit while I was in the interview. By the time I got home it was all over the news.
i was home,geting ready to go to court for a jurry i was on,when i got the call from my wife to turn on the tv,a plane hit the tower,i thought it was some sort of crash till the second one came.one day ill never forget.
I remember a couple of days worth of "why didn't somebody ..........." and "if I had been on that plane....." . In retrospect, that's the day I realized a person has to make a concious decision to physically react like they want to act. The armchair warrior in me died as a result of that day. I won't judge another persons lack of action in a situation I've not been in.
I made my concious decision days after the attack. Now I'm more inclined to respond to a situation rather than sit and watch. The consequences have been weighed and I have my own scales to go by.
a couple days after 911 i had to fly to San Francisco,as i went down the aisle i looked for the guys i would have to kill,damned if there wasn't an arab sitting right next to me,i spent a lot of time readying myself to attack him if he pulled some shit,i still have some options i carry when i fly somewhere.Not condition white anymore....
I just got over the "Retrieved" email.
I aint blubbered like that in a long long time.
Please figure out a way to put that here for all to see.
If anybody wants to see it and Sam don't get it on here then let me know with a PM with your e-mail address. This needs to be seen.
always in at least yellow, preferably in orange...never white. Thats what we were taught and thats how I live.
Having my car checked out. At first, I thought the radio station was pulling some prank. Then I saw it on the TV in the waiting room. I watched a bunch of shows on NatGeoTV. It brought back some memories and emotions I'd forgotten.
Was held over on my shift waiting fior my releif to get in, when the buildings were hit. My wife worked in down town Philly, she would take the train into work, I raced ruight over and got her and went hiome and watching the buildings fall down killing 343 brother fire fighters.
