I was having sex, on my kitchen counter. In Delray Beach Florida, I just got off the night shift. My best friend kept calling during. Finally I answered and she said β€œwe are being bombed” We stopped having sex πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

I was home, in Brooklyn, having worked the night shift at my job. On CBS (the only working station), I saw one building burning, when the 2nd plane hit. Panicked, I REPEATEDLY called my friend who worked in the towers. Being late to work saved his life.😱

18 years ago today, I had a meeting at World Trade Center 1, 15th floor at 9 AM. I woke up at 8:50 AM. Every year, on this day, I think about how my alarm didn't go off. Missing my city today.

I was there. Will never forget seeing and hearing people -- I can't call them just "bodies" -- slamming into the ground. Later a wonderful nurse at a medivac truck carefully pulled all the tiny bits of glass and concrete shrapnel from my neck, arms, scalp and back.

I was overseas, street vendor came running to me saying "did you hear what happened in your home country" it was like a punch in the stomach and just numbness. I was supposed to land in Boston a day or two later and wasn't allowed back in the states for over a month

I worked in the WTC and was transferred to another branch of the office and desperately trying to reach co-workers in the WTC to get out. Get out. They didn’t. Very sad. I will always be sad on this day.

I was clerking for a federal judge in St. Louis, and we had to evacuate the courthouse.

I was working at a terrible job, with people that said, "it's no big deal, get back to work." I realized then I was: a) working in the absolutely wrong place; b) with people I did not respect; c) with no sense of history/politics/the world; and d) I had to leave.

I was on a rerouted F train heading downtown. It stopped at Times Square due to an "incident" at WTC. I started to walk the remaining 20 blocks of my commute. Times Square was completely still as everyone watched the towers burn on the screens overhead.

On Sept 11, I was only 12 at the time. We were watching the news as the towers fell, as people fled the area. Our tough, give-no-shits teacher started crying & that's when it hit home to us how dire things were & I learned what terrorism was

I was on Staten Island. Meant to be in Manhattan. Slept through my alarm. Got a call. "I don't think you're going to work today." I went to the roof. Stood among strangers. Watched skyscrapers crumple like paper houses. But with people in them.

I had just moved to Boston. It was such a beautiful day that I went out to get ice cream. The counter guy told me and I ran back to my brand-new apartment with that stupid cone melting in my hand and sobbed around the TV with my brand-new roommates.

Emergency Broadcast System on the radio. I'm used to the regular message that interrupts good songs. Instead, "This is NOT a test. This is NOT a test. The United States is under terrorist attack. Take shelter immediately and stayed tuned for further instructions."

Barely a month old, probably in my crib. My life as an American Muslim changed forever because of the actions of a few who do not represent me or my religion. I wasn't even old enough to be off breast milk, let alone be your definition of terrorism.

In Chemistry, Back to isomers. It’s just a plane crash After all. In French, We walked in As our teacher cried And the towers burned. In English, A prophetess told me I’m so sorry, Everything is going to change.

I was sitting outside 199 Chambers St, two blocks away, grading papers for a 9 AM class. The first plane flew right over my head. Then I heard a BOOM and the sound of glass breaking. I turned and saw the slanted outline of a plane ringed in fire halfway up Tower One
