    Default 9/11: What were you doing 8 years ago today?

    Just woke up, was eating a bowl cereal, and the newscaster had no idea why the WTC was on fire, and then watched and as the second tower was hit. And then when they both collapsed.

    I woke up early because I felt hideous (TMI, started my period). I sat on the couch alone, the rest of the house was asleep, and I turned on the tv, just to see the first plane crashing into one of the towers. I thought at first it was an aviation disaster, like someone had accidentally crashed.

    The moment I found out there was a second plane, I got up shaking, walked into my mother's room and told her what happened because I was so afraid and stunned. I spent the rest of the day pacing up and down my driveway, just to walk off the horror of it all, saying prayers under my breath for the trapped, the dead, and the emergency workers.

    I was at work. We found out as things were unfolding, mostly from internet feeds.... and then someone switched on a radio.

    I distinctly recall one of my coworkers wailing outside the back of the building because her nephew had been killed by the Pentagon strike.

    I stayed at work all day, mostly in stunned silence, and when I stopped at Cosco on my way home -- in a numb daze -- I remember all the TV displays lined up, all tuned to the same channel, showing the buildings collapsing over and over and over.

    Just horrific.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I was sitting on the living room floor with the TV on (news channel), not sure what i was doing but paperwork everywhere. I heard breaking news and watched with such disbelief, then picked the kids up from school.

    I was going to school. It was a half day.

    When I got home I got told that my great-grandmother died first.

    Then I got told that a bunch of people died in the towers.

    ...all in all, not a good day.

    I was in grade school. Just 9 years old.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I was in 4th grade when all of a sudden our teacher got everyone into a circle and was breaking out in tears as he tried to explain to everyone what was going on. It wasn't untill later on that night when my family took my little brother out to eat for his birthday, when I was watching what had happened on the tv that I fully realized what had happened and how horrible it was.
