I remember this QUITE well, i wasnt working at the time, so i was sleeping in, and i was in the middle of a NICE restful sleep, when my mother walked in and said a plane hit the WTC, i was like ummmm rigth ok mom, thinking it was one of those 1/2 asleep dreams
then she said, Matt im serious... i said i remeber muttering incoherently about how she should stop messin w. me... she goes turn on the f'in tv.... this woke me up rigth away cuz mom NEVER says that word....i woke up straight away and turned on the tv, in time to see one of the first replays of the first plane hitting...my jaw dropped... i canceled EVERYTHING i had planned for that day and sat and watched CNN for almost 20 hours straight.... i just couldnt stop...

I was at home watching it live. I just couldn't believe it. I have flown into La Guardia (LGA) countless times. If you are approching from the North you fly right down the Hudson River right by the WTC and then turn around for a landing on Rwy 04. It was always such a beautiful sight to see those buildings from the air. Alot of our crews were stranded for days after it happened. I was flying in there one morning and there was a low fog layer all over NYC. The top of the fog layer was razor sharp and there were only three buildings sticking up through the fog, the Empire State and the WTC. It was an impressive sight and one I will never forget.

I had just gotten home from work, and turned on the TV. I watched the first tower burning for a bit and then called my wife at work to see if she knew what was going on. Right then, the second plane hit, so the first thing she heard from me was "Holy ***t, we're going to war..."

They, of course, had been watching at work all along, so she knew exactly what I meant.

The whole event still hits me pretty hard. I just wish more people remembered it when they start complaining about the war on terrorism. We may never completely rid the world of terrorists, but we can sure do our best to make thier lives a living hell...

I was where I'm sitting at right now. In front of my computer at work, drafting away, browsing the internet and saw the first one. We turned on the radio to a news channel and listened a bit. When I pulled up the pic of the first hit, my boss exclaimed, "It'* fake!!" Then the second one hit... Then he said, "It'* Bin Laden!!"

I was on the 17th floor of rogers communications, with the CN tower just outside the window towering into the sky...our head honcho said a plane just hit the Trade Center...I immediately tuned my laptop to CNN...... what I saw shocked and amazed me.....throught out the ordeal...I sat in awe and shock....saddened by what was unfolding in front of me...surreal....like it was a bad movie...they finally evacuated all the towers in Toronto...that day will live in history as one of the most horrific..... :(
I watched the replays on TV all last night....my thoughts still disturbed by what I saw.
We as Canadians are bonded with our American friends, in this tragic set of events...I do not agree with our coward of a prime minister to not send troops into help with the invasion plan... freegan guy has to go! an Idiot! that is turning Canada into a haven for terrorist'* to come in and set up! The purpetrators must be dealt with.... hopefully soon, those diabolical scum of the earth with be snuffed out
