Guess I'll be the first one to do an (inevitable) thread about 9-11. Hard to believe it's been 7 years already. I was at work when one of my co-workers came up and told me that a plane had hit the World Trade Center. I thought it was awful, but I figured it was a small single engine plane that maybe lost its way in the fog. When she told me shortly afterwards that another plane had hit the other tower and clarified that these were two huge passenger planes, I really knew something bad was happening so we grabbed the keys to the Conference Room (I worked for the government at the time and the conference room was set up like a mini-UN meeting with 3 gigantic screens all around the room). We turned on the screens and watched and people started filing in. I was stunned when the first tower fell as it looked like a scene out of Independence Day.
Where were you when you first heard about it?
