    I was at work when it happened. had to get most of my news from here, Couldn't get on any news sites. It wasn't until 2 days later when i was in my car, driving home from school and God Bless the USA came on the radio, that i just broke down into tears.

    Jeremy,
    very sorry to hear about your grandmother. I just recently lost my Grandmother to cancer about 7 months ago. Then about 2 months ago my grandfather died, from just a broken heart i guess. Anyway, i know what you are going through man, if you ever want someone to talk to about anything, don't hesitate to contact me on AIM or Yahoo.
    Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I've tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.

    Yeah, she's the last surviving grandparent... I keep trying to keep myself distracted so I don't collapse, but it isn't working very well...

    Work is having an "employee party" with games and such in 20 minutes so hopefully that'll help... Either that or word has gotten around and they'll want to pray for me at which point I'll fall to complete pieces

    Thanx everyone, I really appreciate all your thoughts, prayers and kind words, I truly do

    I was sitting at my desk at work when the first plane hit. Which is two blocks from the White House. By the time the second plane had hit I was downstairs watching the terrible tragedy unfold right before our eyes. Then we got word of the plane that crashed in PA. The real kicker was when the plane hit the Pentagon. Needless to say everybody evacuated the building at that point.

    I feel as if I owe the brave passengers on the flight that went down in PA my life. If that plane would have suceedded and hit it's intended target, which was the White House, it's very possilbe that I wouldn't be here replying to this topic right now. It makes me proud to be an American to know they put up a fight on that plane. So if by chance any SitePointers know any of the families of the PA flight passengers, please give them my thanks, my gratitude and also my deepest condolences.

    Sitting in front of my computer, 10.30pm, Sydney Australia time, and icq kept flashing..
    "Are you watching the news?" over and over. "No, I'm busy working" (as I usually do online late at night!)

    When I got a phone call at midnight, "Quick, turn the TV on" I decided to stop and see what all the fuss was about, and I didn't move from the lounge for nearly 2 days, except to visit cnn.com for more updates. Stunned..

    I still am, 6 weeks later.

    JFK was assassinated 2 years to the day, before I was born..

    In an all day training seminar. At lunch others in the office were muttering "have you heard? a plane has crashed" and all my course members assumed it was a tragic air disaster where some plane had crashed on some runway. Thought little more about it (sounds cruel doesn't it? there is never 'just another disaster'), arrived home just after midnight, switched on the TV and heard/saw what actually happened. Then immediately thought of my cousins in NY. Watched repeats like some sitcom in horror for hours. A lot changed for me in those early hours of Sept 12th. R.I.P.
