View Full Version : Where were you when the Towers fell?
09-11-2008, 12:05 PM
I was in the 5th grade, just doing my work, and the pricipal came on over the intercom and told us to turn on the tv. When we did, I saw a tower on fire, then a few minutes later BAM, another plane hit the other tower and the Pentagon.
This was the day I decided to join the military.

I was in the University and I remember watched the second one live.
09-11-2008, 02:57 PM
I was eating breakfast in the living room. when I saw a plane hit the tower I honestly thought it was just some stupid person who can't fly. lol but after watching the second hit and the towers fall a sense of fear came over me. I thought we were gonna get invaded.
09-11-2008, 03:04 PM
I was in class. Just a little lad at the time. The principal came onto the intercom like were you were, and did the exact same, told us to turn on the T.V. I remember that most everyone was terrified, some saying under their breath about their family being either in the towers or close, some sobbing and all.
When they fell.. I was at home. When the planes crashed in it, on my way home. with my mom and sis.
09-11-2008, 03:47 PM
I might have been at school or home, I don't remember.
09-11-2008, 04:28 PM
I was in fifth grade. I don't really remember the principal or teacher announcing it and I know that the television wasn't turned on. Instead, my teacher made us sit in a circle and pray for whoever was inside. I remember being terrified, though I didn't really understand what was happening, and then I watched the news when I got home.
09-11-2008, 04:33 PM
I was a senior in high school and was on my way to class when I turned the TV on to the news. My friend and I were in shock like this cant be happening.
09-11-2008, 06:14 PM
In a History class in high school.
Edit: Just realized that something historic happened in my History class.
09-11-2008, 06:18 PM
I was in hmm, 8th greade or something (junior high) and came home from school then watched the 2nd plane crash LIVE!! omg (time iffrence you know)
Mom was so freaked out I recall.
09-11-2008, 06:54 PM
I can't remeber clearly, I live in england so the time was different, i just remeber waking up in the morning and seeing it all over the papers and the news. I was quite young so I didn't really understand how big it was till there was an assembly about it in school..
09-11-2008, 07:08 PM
I was at home; since it was a student holiday at my school. We were scared that day because they said that the Sears Tower was on the terrorists' list.
09-11-2008, 07:30 PM
I was at school and watched the whole thing!
09-11-2008, 07:32 PM
I had just got back from town, then I saw all my family surrounding the T.V.
09-11-2008, 07:59 PM
I was in first grade iirc. I don't remember much... :/
09-11-2008, 08:02 PM
i was in 3rd grade, everyone in my class started crying
09-11-2008, 08:29 PM
I was also in the 5th grade, probably in the middle of a lesson. There used to be a broadcast every morning showing world events and it came on twice that day at totally different times replaying what happened. We were so scary back then that we hid under our desks crying because we thought something could land on our school at anytime.
09-11-2008, 08:37 PM
I had recently stepped into the classroom. (4th grade). Everyone was gathered around the class' computer. I saw the video being streamed from there and I never really fathomed and studied the happening until a couple of years afterwards.
09-11-2008, 08:46 PM
Where were you when the Towers fall?
Sleeping at my room.
09-11-2008, 10:18 PM
i was in 1st grade when i came home i saw it on the tv my mom kept us home after that
09-11-2008, 10:29 PM
I was on my way to school. I had taken a short cut through that back side of a market place which led out to a side street. At the corner of the side street there was a small clinic. I was listening to the radio at the time, and the music stopped and the dj started talking about what was going on. I stopped right in front of the clinic listening to the radio in stunned silence. Then I looked at the clinic and there was a tv visible from the window and on it the whole scene was going on. I sat there for about 20 minutes watching it unfold.
09-11-2008, 10:30 PM
i was getting ready for school when overreligios grandma called freakin out about the end of times r something. anyway stayed home from school
09-11-2008, 10:39 PM

i was at school asleep in class....
09-12-2008, 01:58 AM
I remember that i was at home watching cartoons and then all of a
sudden the news poped up and it was showing how the second plane
09-12-2008, 02:03 AM
I was in my 5th grade class. The intercome had announced that there was an important event happening and told all the teachers to turn on the tv to a specific channel. Everyone gathered around the T.V. while I just sat in my seat head on hand about to go to sleep. I then hear these kids gasp and scream so I started to laugh like they had pulled a prank on them or something. But when I saw what it was I wasnt terrified persay, actually more like I was in a short of unweeryness of whether to be sad or mad. Now that so many years have passed im actually happy, NO not because the twin towers had fell, but because the fact that that one incident opened my eyes to how truly extroardinary or world and how people must fight for their own freedom whether its the way they want to fight or not. You can call me a sick freak, or even mentally ill, but all in all im actually happy that the event had occured.
09-12-2008, 02:09 AM
I wont specify where, but I do remember getting the call.
09-12-2008, 02:17 AM
I wont specify where, but I do remember getting the call.This is so silly, Russkie. This comment was inappropriate and impertinent.
09-12-2008, 02:20 AM
I was at school, came home with a homework assignment. Regarding the attack..
09-12-2008, 02:29 AM
This is so silly, Russkie. This comment was inappropriate and impertinent.
You really dont have a clue when to take me seriously or not, do you?
09-12-2008, 06:47 AM
I was in the middle of my precious sleep when my aunt called to my house to tell me to turn on the TV because something really bad had happened in New York, I was half asleep when I turned it on. And well, I clearly saw when the second plane crashed onto the second tower, I was very confused. I realized what happened after I saw the news. RIP
09-12-2008, 10:54 AM
I was in middle school sitting and learning math while my teacher had the tv on the news channel
09-12-2008, 11:20 AM
It makes me extremely sad and angry everytime I watch those Towers fall. What they did was unforgivable, and I believe we made the right choice and go to war. To tell the truth, I think we shouldve carpet-bombed the entire country and the neighboring countries from the start of the war. It wouldve save so many American, British, and other allied lives, yes, at the expense of a mass genocide of a few nations. But they deserved no mercy, just as they didnt heed the calls of mercy from the airline passengers. Im glad Im going to war, Im not afraid, and if I die there Im going to take them with me. Call me evil, call me whatever you want, but this is what I believe. America has gotten too soft, and the 'Axis of Evil' is taking advantage of that.
I can say a whole lot more, but I may get in trouble. So yeah...
09-12-2008, 01:34 PM
7th grade, language arts class. We had the tv on, and we saw the 2nd plane hit and the newscasters had the most shocked expression I have ever seen in my life.
09-12-2008, 01:48 PM
09-12-2008, 08:35 PM
i live only 2 hours away in where the twin towers fell ... in school ... turned on tv and we all watched it ...
09-12-2008, 08:36 PM
umm...at school in the principles office for beating up someone.
09-13-2008, 04:54 AM
When the towers fell I was in first grade doing my spelling work (wich I soooo suck at even now in 8th grade) and my teacher had turend on the TV and I saw two towers burning and we got let out early because they thought they might come hit orlando next but I lives south west of orlando so anyway we left early and when I got home I had asked my mom lots of questions about it.
09-13-2008, 05:58 AM
I'm on the west coast so I think I was asleep. I remember getting ready for school when I saw some flaming grass on the news and heard something about the pentagon being hit.
09-14-2008, 06:05 AM
I was at school. Never heard of this until the next week or so. Man, I have bad memory...
09-14-2008, 06:15 AM
I was sleeping (lived on west coast, so it was early). My mom woke me up saying that two planes just crashed into buildings in New York. We watched the news in their bedroom until we had to go to school. I was in seventh grade. A lot of the students hadn't heard about it yet. Everyone was pretty scared and kept expecting more attacks I remember. The entire day at school, all the teachers did was turn on the news to watch it and see if anything new had happened.
09-14-2008, 06:38 AM
I was a high school student, I just came back home... and as most of the people... -watched it on TV. At first I thought that was an "action movie" or some "manipulated pictures," but then I realized it was live on news.... The moment I saw people jumping off the windows I understood how horrifying it was..... Couldn't believe it was happening for real. Next day everyone was talking about it in school. We had a moment of silence and such... Everyone was was truly moved. No one understood why did that happen.
10-02-2008, 04:34 AM
I was in 4th grade talking to my friend... after getting down with my homework. All of a sudden my teacher started freaking and turned on the T.V. in our classroom and we saw the second tower fall
10-02-2008, 04:49 AM
i was at my friends house picking him up to go to school in the morning.
10-02-2008, 02:50 PM
I was a Sophmore in High school
who cares about those towers when i exp'ed most awesome thing on earth (it's my personal opinion)
i was going home from grandma, clock was ~22:30, and then - BOOM!!!! mighty White lightning crashed few meters from me in a top of the tree who was near me(~6-9meters) lightning sliced tree in half and all upper part was destroyed and shred from it was all over the place! it was so bright..omg i can't describe that so simple, but it was most awesome thing i've seen in my life...damn twas fucking insane..
bad thing is..it happened few years back..but man..i remember it like it was yesterday..
10-02-2008, 09:35 PM
I was in school. The principal told everyone to switch the TV on. First time I ever cared about something on the news.
Hey, Stray Wolf! How long have you been in the Army?

10-07-2008, 06:27 PM
I was in school, the 6th grade my teacher got a call and he turned the tv, there was this lady scream then it showed one of the towers on fire minutes later, boom another plain hit the other tower it was so sad.
10-07-2008, 09:20 PM
I was at work. A guy got a call from someone, and so he turned the radio to some talk station and we listened as it was happening. Horrible time. So much sorrow...
10-07-2008, 10:10 PM
Lets see I remember being in class, history to be exact. We were reading or something when the intercom turned on and had us turn the projectors on to watch.. after a moment of silence as well. It was horrible to think about any of it.. but then it stared stiring up so many theories of what had happened, some think it to be the panes and other bombs.. we had a huge discussion on it later on.. few years later 11th grade in history.
10-08-2008, 01:16 AM
I was in my 5th grade French class- Everyone noticed that our teacher was not there. He then walked in crying and we found out his pregnant wife was on a plane that crashed into the towers. She of course didnt survive, I don't think anyone will ever forget that day.
10-08-2008, 02:27 AM
i was in third grade they didn't tell us anything but when i got back home i found out what happened because my brother turned on the news.
10-08-2008, 01:29 PM
i was in 8th grade and i was sleeping in class all of sudden i heard that twins tower were on fire
02-07-2009, 07:53 AM
in my 3rd grade math class ugh and she had the t.v. on and i got up walked past it and then said oh shit look the towers just fell
02-07-2009, 02:24 PM
I was in the cafeteria when I actually heard people talking about it and then when I got back to the classroom our teacher told us...
02-07-2009, 06:02 PM
Well, at least now i know its Shadow the one who's been reviving old threads.
Now as for the topic, i don't really remember, i didn't know about the towers for like a week after it happened
02-08-2009, 03:13 AM
In front of my TV, watching it.
02-15-2009, 01:47 AM
I was in my math class in the ninth grade. Past that I think that I have blocked the memory out. It was very scary.
02-15-2009, 03:34 AM
I was probably in class, seeing as how it happened during schooltime, back then i was living in Mèxico, which is probably why i didn't know until later, it didn't mean as much to any other country other than the U.S.
(Note: i'm not from there, i just lived there for a while.)
02-15-2009, 05:17 AM
i think i was in the 5th or 6th grade and i was in class doing some work when the principal came over the intercome and told us to turn on the tv and watch... and thts wht happened for me...and i got home and asked my parents"why did the bad people knock down 2 buildings"?
lol... i think i was a stupid kid back then...lol..
02-15-2009, 10:03 AM
I was on the street and then my mum called me and told me what had happened. By chance I found a TV and I watched how the news were repeating the images of the first crash...
02-15-2009, 01:24 PM
I was on my way to school and heard it over the radio.
02-15-2009, 02:32 PM
i was in school.
the rumours were so fucked up though.
everyone said a bomb exploded down the street from us,
because word totally gets misconstrued in middle school.
and then i came home, since they let us out early.
and i saw the images. i can't say i was really fazed, because i was still a child.
but now i'm kind of horrified. i don't know.
but yeah. that's where i was.
02-15-2009, 05:18 PM
On a plane to New York.
02-15-2009, 05:29 PM
I was getting yelled at in math class
02-15-2009, 06:34 PM
opening the eyes of the masses.
02-15-2009, 07:00 PM
I was sleeping in class ::D:
02-15-2009, 07:08 PM
I was home in Tunis (I am not Tunisian, I was just living there)! I remember my father called when the incident occurred. He came home shortly after that. It was a very sad day.
02-16-2009, 02:48 PM
hm i was in the apartment with my sister i was homeschooled at the time i was old enough that it scared the heck out of me and that is all i remember.
02-16-2009, 03:20 PM
I was sleeping in class ::D:
You too :O? :D :D
02-17-2009, 01:01 AM
I was in my high school English class. The TV was on almost the entire time. People started crying. I was wondering if my family in that area was ok. It was pretty shocking at first. Also, my high school immediately said they have counselors if people need them. After that, no one went to class, and they basically called the day off.
