What do you remember most about Sep. 11th 2001?

I as always read a million news sources a day and so on. But it hit me
ust a few moments ago, a flash back kind of thing of seeing the Building's fall, and the plains hit.

I had just gotten home from taking my wife to work in Bloomington, Indiana. It was a nice fall day and she usualy drove herself but things worked out that we (the family) could all have some morning time together. I had gotten home and started my morning fix of news (I have not like or trusted Bush from day #1) so see what Bush & CO were up to messing up. I turned from CNN to the New York News stations we recived on Direct TV (By the way the stop us from getting that, whats up with that NY!) They had just turned to the first plain hitting and you could see the tower out the back window behing the news crew. They stoped in mid sentence to turn and look at the fire when a crew then started filming from the roof top of the fire. When the second plane hit then the smoke, Bush sitting and reading a book liie nothing (unexpected) had happened. Then the tower fell and sorrow, my children asking why I was crying. I will never forget it, ever. I had to call my wife and tell her to turn on a TV or radio. All the women were laughing and talking and I told her, Look you are the facilities department and something has happened, you need to serious up. Then I told her, and then she got real serious on safty for the student's. What a day to never forget!

Sorry if I rambled, just one of those thing that stay's with you, ya' know what I mean!
