    On a plane sitting on the tarmac at Philly. Flight to Dallas was scheduled to take off at 8:47 am. We were third in the queue when the skies were shut down.
    Here's a little side note: American Express wanted me to pay for the ticket even though the plane never took off. "You have to remit your unused ticket sir, or else we have to charge you." "They took my ticket when I boarded the flight," I responded. "Then you were on the flight and are responsible for either paying for the flight or returning the ticket." Took months and escalation to my company's travel agent for those bozos to stop insisting I must pay. I still have the boarding pass. And more insight into how we still don't have all the story.

    Thankful for your father. I can imagine you were never so happy to see him as you were after that and he made it home. I am so sorry about your uncle.

    At one of my employer's facilities on Staten Island near Fresh Kills. We were having what our director used to call a "town hall meeting" which needless to say got cancelled. I had just gone to vote in the primary that morning. I saw the Twin Towers from Hylan Blvd. and went on the highway. My wife was supposed to be passing there when it happened. Fortunately, she stayed home. When I came back home - they were gone. And, I remember October 7 too - I was in Boston when at 12:30 PM, all the church bells started playing the Battle Hymn of the Republic. We had just gone into Afghanistan. That weekend I just felt I had to visit the historic sites. I made sure to see Faneuil Hall, Boston Common, and Lexington and Concord. On 9/11, I wanted to see Bush on TV hitting whoever did this like Reagan did with Libya. But, Bush was no Reagan....

    Waking up in the hospital, disoriented and confused, my hand still swollen and bloated, and trying to play videogames without succumbing to the buzzing nausea in my brain.

    Fun way to wake up, watching the Twin Towers being knocked down on television and not having any idea what I was seeing until days later.

    At my ex-girlfriend's. Just rolled out of bed to have breakfast with her and then I turned on the tv to watch some news and shortly after, the second plane had hit the tower. It was so surreal. I remember that I was really tired and still half asleep and watching that on tv just seemed like a bad dream.

    in study hall in middle school. We had the radio on listening to classical music and the report came on over the music. Scary.
