I was at a Sears training seminar in Raleigh, NC and when we broke for lunch and went into their break room we saw what was going down on their tvs.

RE: OT: Where Were You on This Day 16 Years Ago
I was on a flight from Atlanta to Dallas and landed after the first tower was hit. News was saying it was a horrible accident with a private jet or small plane. Got in my rental car at DFW and drove to office in Plano. When I got there, shhit had hit the fan. 3 days later I drove my rental car home to ATL from Dallas. I remember listening to SXM the whole way home and just so emotional from hate to pride and back and forth. Still makes me sick to my stomach.

I was on the way to work in Charlotte when I heard it on the radio. I also assumed it was an accident like the plane that hit the Empire State Building in WWII. Of course I knew when I heard about the second plane. I was trying to explain to a group of Mexicans who spoke little English what was happening.

My parents were at the WTC on 9/9. They returned to Greenville on 9/10.

On my way into the office. Train ran parallel to the Palisades on its way into Hoboken (there to transfer to the PATH to get into Manhattan). We saw that there was a fire at one of the towers. Someone had a radio or cel phone and said a plane struck the tower. My initial thought was "impossible, Manhattan is a no-fly zone".

By the time I got into the city the 2nd tower had been hit. My office was on 14th St. and 9th Ave, and I had a southern exposure. Spent my day looking out the window until we heard that the subways were running again. Had to get up to the GWB to get on a shuttle, then walk down one of the highways on the Jersey side until we could get on another bus the rest of the way home.

Very surreal in New York that day.
