Where Were You On 9/11…?

We at Uncommon Sense are very interested to hear from our listeners/readers with regards to where they were when the news first broke of the attack on America on 9/11. If you’re up for sharing, please, add your story here.

We’d love to know what you remember from that day, who you were with, the phone calls you made, anything you may recall as to how you felt as the story began to unfold. Like the assassination of JFK over a generation ago, 9/11 evokes certain ‘world stood still’ moments for many Americans, and most over the age of 15 will have something memorable they experienced on this most special day in American history.

We hope to hear from you, and may we never, ever, forget.

God Bless,

The Parson & the Cleaner

  1. I walked into my living room and the TV was on. I laughed because I thought some idiot crashed a smaller plane into the building. No one could say much as to what happened yet. Then I remember seeing the second one hit and I was stunned. I couldn’t believe it. At that point it became apparent what was happening. I went to school after that. It was talked about all day. I remember not being too affected about it at the time. I was rather immature, young, and i’ll be honest a drug addict. My thoughts were pretty much centered on me in those days. But, I remember telling a teacher in class that I thought it was funny how a couple hundred people all die at once, in this fashion, and America cries out and is stunned at the brutality, though everyday hundreds of Americans are murdered, assaulted, raped and abused yet it doesn’t affect us so. He said, “Aaron, I have lost all respect for you.” I remember that clear as a whistle. It took me a few years to mature about things and understand fully what took place. Watching the remembrance film at GGF, it hit me, it hit me hard. I really hope that I remember what happened, that I continue to understand the propensity of what took place and that I am willing to do my part to uphold our security as Americans, at home and abroad, in what ever fashion that I can do so.
