It's a good day to reflect on what we all have, and how fragile it all can be.

Truly don't understand why MSNBC is just running the entire day's broadcast from 9/11/01. Are we going to relive this every year for the rest of our lives?

It was an awful day. It still makes my heart sick and I don't ever want to relive it, let alone every year.

I remember that morning waking up about 6 MST, going to the TV to watch Sportcenter for the Broncos-Giants MNF highlights, and to get news about Ed McCaffrey. I turn on the set, flip it to ESPN. I see the WTC with smoke pouring out of it. I sit, stunned and watch the 2nd plane slam into the North Tower...scary damn day. Then to hear the Pentagon was hit...and a plane downed in Pa...

I remember it too. Was living in Boulder at the time, but working in Denver.

When I saw what was on, I was completely shocked. I felt like I was living in a movie. "This can't be real. It can't be."

Too real.

I spent the rest of the day on the air talking about it, and must have worked 17 hours that day. Emotionally and physically exhausted, I grabbed a beer with some coworkers and we just relished each other's company.

It was a terrible thing that happened. But in that moment, a lot of us came together.

I remember turning the TV on, and being confused. Like maybe Direct TV switched channels over night and I was on a movie station...it was on every single channel.

I was in California, it was early as hell. I was sleeping on the couch and had left the TV on all night.

My dad had gotten up and was getting ready for work and I heard the coffee being ground and he flipped it to the news. Then I heard him say "Holy ****" which, of course, woke me up out of my half-sleep state.

I said "What?" and he said "Look at this ****".

I sat there, and watched for the next 12 hours, unable to really grasp it. My heart sank as those buildings collapsed, and Im not going to lie, I cried. Not like balling cried, but I couldnt stop the tears.

I hate watching it now. I hate having that gut wrenching feeling in the put of my stomach and I hate that the anger I felt that day gets revisited.

I was in School i believe 10th grade my teacher turn on the TV and everyone taught it was a movie, a NTA that was working at my school was crying because her sister works at the WTC or something like that. The Principal announced on the Loud Speaker that everybody must leave the Building and go home.

I was all focus on the Gaints and Broncos game the whole morning, Talking about Eddie Macs broken leg with my friend and then out of no ware the US is under attack. It's a pretty crazy feeling...

Oh yea then My Birthday was 2 days later 9/13 it didn't even feel like a birthday...

I was in 7th grade...we didn't go home though, we watched the news coverage all day. The eeriest classroom I've ever been in. 25 kids watching tv have never been so somber.

Yeah I think we can all remember that Tuesday, and remember what we were doing. I was in my dorm room, getting ready to head to class, and then bam, there it was. I remember hoping it was some kind of an accident, then you see that 2nd plane fly into the tower. I remember that helpless, gut-wrenching pain I felt in my stomach. It was def. an emotional day, and this generations Pearl Harbor. God Bless America, and all those families that lost loved ones on 9/11.

I have a stable of 1700 writers (and bring more on every week) across three different "channels." I work with them, get them story ideas, and help them with their publishing.

Pretty interesting stuff for the most part.

I have a cousin who was an intern for a big financial company in one of the towers. She hadn't gone to work that day because she'd wanted to spend the day with her boyfriend, only they both slept in and didn't get the news til around noon eastern. Of course, my whole family was freaking because nobody had heard from her, and when she finally started calling, and me in particular, the tears were flowing.

I heard a knock at the door and went to answer. Two elderly women were at my door...Jehovah's Witnesses it turns out. They started their pitch and I was trying to politely tell them I wasn't interested. One of them said as calmly as if she were asking me what the whether was going to be if I heard about the plane that crashed into the WTC. I said no...she said she heard on the radio about it but didn't know any details. I figured a small plane since she didn't seem concerned. I went inside and flipped on the TV and sat staring at smoke billowing out of the first tower. A minute later the next plane struck the other tower. I couldn't process what I was seeing at first. I think I started praying for people in the towers, then I heard the Pentagon was hit. I got a call saying school was cancelled. I went to start picking up kids and started thinking about what or how to tell them. Someone said maybe the schools would be targeted also. I remember wondering if we were going to see a nuke go off next.

It was very interesting day today. Because in many it the small things that I remember more then anything else being here in DC and having to go by the Pentagon to get to home. I remember sitting in the office and hearing via the radio (Elliot in the Morning because that all we could get) that two planes and hit the WTC in NY. Followed by the hit on the Pentagon. Then lock down, and massive panic as folks sprinted to the command center and we had to do a hard muster call because no one in the command knew where everyone was and there was strong fear that we have folks in that ring. (We did but they got out, but it was very horrific experience for them).

Then the wait as the everyone responded and folks try to get a hold of their love ones. Random false reports of bombings at the state dept, and out of the FAC radar control center near Dulles. My office stay until about 1400 hours, they had release the command about 2 hours before. Lucky one of the guys I worked with was able to drop me off at my car vs me taking the Metro yellow/blue line under the Pentagon to get home. I remember driving by the Pentagon on 395, finally able to get a hold of my father and saying that the side of the building was gone.

Other random memories how quickly DC became a ghost town, the fact that I was wearing blue suit and rep tie (which I still have because I pull it once and awhile and think how lucky I was that meeting that was regularly held in that section of the Pentagon was called off that week), the tar black smoke raising over the Potomac that we saw from the corner office in my building, the AWAC and F16s flying combat cover over the capital. The nerviness of folks on the Metro all the rest of the week as we stopped that Pentagon.

Regular day for me, kinda sad to say. I guess it should have affected my day a lot more.

I lived real close to down town Denver (hell, probably in the city proper) and I was running late to work. Of course, I was all excited about the Broncos win the night before and I hopped in my car for the 2 minute drive to the parking garage (yah, well, I WAS running late). I turned on the car and almost always had the radio tuned to The Fan so I was anticipating Broncos talk...

All I remember is me thinking "is this some kind of freaking joke? News about something going on in NYC, news about a plane crash?" Needless to say, I was not happy.

As I was listening, I'm pretty sure the second plane hit the other tower and I thought to myself, "ok, this isn't a joke, I'll check it out on the 'puter when I get to the office."

Internet was total crap. Must have been flooded with peeps trying to get news about what was going on. No one in the office really knew the situation. We kinda talked about it but it was more of a "wait and see when I get home" type of conversation.

Needless to say, the day was spent doing the same old same old. It wasn't until I got home that night that I saw the story on tv. Like I said, internet was worthless all day.

I was watching a deal on the History channel last night..and they gathered up a bunch of "home" footage of the whole thing..off camera you could hear a guy talking on his phone say that he would have been in the north tower but was 15 minutes late because he was up late watching Monday Night Football...he said Monday Night Football saved his life!!

I lived on the upper west side and was late to work because of the game as well. I took the subway down to 23rd street around 10 AM totally unaware of the circumstances. Getting out and seeing the chaos on the street even a mile or so from ground zero was terrifying. My girlfriend lived in Union Square and you couldn't go downtown past 14th street without passing through checkpoints for months. New Yorkers made me proud of the city though.

Yeah 9/11 IS my birthday, so like most of you, I was exited about the Broncos win the night before, and sitting in class. The Principle got on the loud speaker and announced it, the rest of the day was just sitting in front of TVs in class in shock. We had football practice after school, and watched Air Force One fly over our town, accompanied by fighter jets. It was such a surreal day. My mom had a surprise birthday party for me that night, but it was a pretty somber mood, as we all just sat around watching the news.
