Where were you? What were you doing? How did you find out? What did you do as an immediate reaction? What were you thinking?

Study Hall, freshman year of high school. The principal came over the PA system and made an announcement that the world trade centers had been bombed. At the time I didn't know what the world trade center was and basically had no understanding of the context. After study hall I had gym, and talked to other people who were similarly oblivious. We acknowledged the wtf factor but also joked around that we would be next in a lighthearted way.

Every other class had their TV's on and were watching the news coverage. By the time I had a class with a TV in it, the teacher said "i'm sure you've been watching this all day in your other classes, so we're going to try and forget about it and go on with the material."

I got home still not knowing wtf, and then watched the news for like 2 days straight. I took a break to argue with a (particularly dumb) friend who didn't understand why I didn't think we shouldn't immediately flatten the entire middle east with nukes. I remember her main argument cited that footage they showed of Palestinians celebrating in the streets. "If they are celebrating people dying then they should all die too."

I was in bed watching the early-morning live broadcast of the Today show, about to fall asleep, when they broke in with reports that a plane hit one of the towers of the World Trade Center. I remember thinking "how the fuck do you manage to crash into the world trade center?" It reminded me of that story about the military plane that hit the Empire State Building, and as I thought about the probability of it being an accident, boom, the second plane hit. So then I woke my mom up and we watched the chaos.

In the afternoon the teacher said that we should wait until we have all the facts and avoid jumping to conclusions. Then 14 year old wiseass me said "I blame the middle east."

I was driving to work. A zany comedy morning show that I used to listen to was all somber and talking about a plane hitting the wtc. It was really pretty shocking.

On the bus to school in grade 8, being told by some old guy on the bus who was a regular bus person. I also learned what the World Trade Center was on that day... We got to spend the entire morning watching shit about it on TV.

Yesterday I pretty much forgot what day it is. But whatever, I live in Canada

Was wir alle durchmachen sind ihre Geburtswehen. Alles scheint negativ — und einmal wird dann doch Neues and Grosses geboren werden....”

Got home from school, turned on TV, special broadcast, either right before or right after the second plane hit.
