47. Driving 10 minutes away from the pentagon listening to a news report
that was taking place at the pentagon while the plane hit. My dad was driving me to school. We both looked at eachother with this grave look on our faces. The whole day was spent listening to my friends hand held radio, as our teachers were told not to show any news footage or listen to any radio for the rest of the day.
