JFK: school
MLK: home, I remember the news cut-in.
RFK: sleeping probably. My Ma woke me up to watch the news.
Challenger: university. Normally I would have seen this but as I'd started work on my Masters, I was in Ga instead of the Space Coast. Many of my co-workers saw it. Stayed with them.
9/11 working, at university. Small crowd in hallway, said something about a plane hitting a Tower. Thinking something like a Cessna, I made a joke about King Kong. They said no, big plane. I said the tower was coming down. They looked at me like I was stupid. Difference in thinking between an Engineer and a Mathmatician I guess.

Working "in a group of one" this day, which was not an easy thing to do. My instinct was the best thing I could do is try to get a good day's work in anyway - my personal answer to the terrorist attack.

Doing cursive handwriting in the 3rd grade. Had nightmares for awhile after the news showed Palestinians celebrating in the streets. I thought that was incredibly f'd.

I was working at Ohio State.

I had pulled a 11pm-7am shift the night before, and had to be back to work at 11am so I was actually sleeping still when the planes hit. Spent pretty much all of work watching the news.

High school gym class. I was changing clothes and heard it over the intercom. Remember it like it was yesterday. The rest of the day in every class we just watched the tv as everything unfolded.

Sleeping on the couch because I was coughing didn't want to wake my wife up. Eyes full of gunk. Turn on the tv to see what was going on in the world before I went to work. I saw a burning building on my small tv. So I switched it to other stations to see if they had the same shot ( CNN & their over dramatized 'breaking news'-i wanted to make sure this was a real story and not some old hotel caught on fire.

At 903 I screamed for my wife in the bathroom.
I was on the turnpike by mile marker 200 or so when they announced a plane went down in western pa. I started looking in my rear view mirror seeing of I could see smoke.

At work. Had the attack been a week later I would have been on a plane headed to California. Likely would have been stranded in Kansas or someplace like that based on the timing of my flight and when they grounded all air traffic.

At work, manager came to my desk and said a plane hit the WTC. We turned on the tv and we're watching the"accident" then another plane hit the other building and we knew it was not an accident...

On my way to work. I heard it on the radio, ran into the office and turned on our TV. News was still clueless as the second building had not yet been struck. We watched the second building get hit in real time. My cousin was at work at the Pentagon. He was knocked to the floor when the plane hit and made it outside in time to help provide first aid to the victims.

Practlcally identical to me.

Our HR team had just finished our daily 5-minute meeting in the conference room. Some of us were chatting, and a guy from safety bursts in and said a plane had hit the tower, and we turned on the TV in the room

We're catching the replay of the first one, and then saw the second on live - and then we knew.

Weird thing is that our Labor Relations manager was in DC in a training class that day -he had no idea about the Pentagon being hit until after it happened, he was about a mile away.

Running for my life with my wife as we tried to get out of DC before another plane hit the Capitol. Recall walking past the Pentagon to where my car was parked less than half a mile from where the plane hit there. All during the night we heard F-16s flying circles around the city and helicopters carrying the wounded from the Pentagon to local hospitals.

Getting ready to leave for work. Boss called and said don't bother. That day changed the world and changes us all.

I would not be where I am today If it weren't for 9/11. Literally and figuratively.

On approach into PHL as the first plane hit. Watched the 2nd on the TV in the terminal. Got the last hotel room at the airport, and took a Greyhound back to Cincinnati 2 days later.

In school. I don't remember being told about it until I got on the school bus though.
