I was at work at my job in the meat dept at a grocery store. I was in the managers office doing some paper work and chit chatting with her when another girl came in.
She had just come in to work and said her daughter had just called her and said a plane hit the WTC. that was the first plane and at the time didn't know if it was an accident or on purpose.
The manager said we could turn on the TV in the conference/break room and watch throughout the day on breaks and lunches. they usually did not let us use the TV as it was mostly to run training videos.

Our company would not think of closing the store for any reason and letting the employees go home. not if they would lose a couple of nickels in profit.
We got a lot of updates during the day from a lot of the customers that came through who all wanted to talk about it.
a really scary day for America..

I was working at a grade school. We had to be careful and not discuss it in around the kids. It was really hard to work the rest of the day.

I was at home. Hubby was at work. He heard about it on the office radio and called me to turn on the tv.

I was a Real Estate Agent in Sedona, AZ -- at work that day and did not even hear the news right away. We did not have a TV or radio in our office.

My husband and I were home. Our son, who lives in Central New York, called and said "turn on your TV." We did and then watched throughout the day. You can't deny the tragedy that happened, but our nation did pull together and there was hope and compassion. Today it seems there is much despair and divisiveness.

I was at the J-H tax office helping to register persons for the fall tax course. We closed the place and told everyone to go home. The Safeway, Drugstore and all the other stores in the shopping center closed also. Someone said they'd heard a plane was headed to Andrews AFB, other people were desperately trying to contact their family members who were working at the Pentagon. I tried to call my own Daughters...but phone lines were too busy to get through.

I think I'm more depressed on this 9/11 than ever before.
