Got told by my history teacher as I waited with some friends for the school bus to turn up and take us home (around 3PM UK time). He didn't really go into too much detail, so the significance of it all only really reached me when I arrived at my house and turned on the tv, every channel was taken over by the twin tower's destruction. I legitimately thought that WW3 was going to start after that moment, such a worrying time to live through, especially for a fairly sheltered fourteen year old boy who hadn't been exposed to anything on that scale before.
was in fort hood getting ready for pt.....2 days later i was getting ready to get my shipping papers and go to Afghanistan.
Last time i was in San Francisco i went downtown lookin for a womun, you know what i mean? I WANTED A WOMUN!!! I COULDN'T FIND NO WOMUN!! I FOUND A LOTTA MEN THAT LOOKED LIKE WIMMIN!!!!!
I was at recess in 4th grade during the first tower collapse. When my class came back inside our teacher informed us of the events and many parents came and picked up their children, essentially ending the school day at 10:30. It was bone-chilling as a soon-to-be 10 year old to see two large buildings to collapse and to hear of bad people willing crashing planes full of people into important landmarks. Just shock and horror all around the school despite the young age groups.
