This morning we’re asking our wonderful K-EARTH 101 audience “Where were you when you found out about the terrorist attacks on 9/11”.
The calls are coming in like crazy, so we’re giving you a chance to post your memories right here on our web site!
Listen to listener’s calls below:
Post your memory of 9/11 in the comment section below!
Here’s an example from one listener Bonnie B.:
I can’t call in because my Director is in today but I just wanted to tell you where I was when 9/11 happened.
I work at California State University Fullerton, and was a Custodian at the time. I was coming out of an office I had been cleaning and one of the ladies that worked in another office came into the lobby and told me that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. We went into the Financial Aid office that had a TV in their lobby and turned on the set in time to see the second plane hit. All of the financial officers that had been in the back of the complex came streaming out and we were standing there watching when I realized that there was tapping on the glass windows behind us. The entire lobby of the office is glass and every inch of those glass windows were filled with people’s faces, trying to see the television. We went and unlocked the door and they all started crowding in. There must have been over 100 of us crammed into this lobby watching in horror of everything that was going on. Some were on their phones and most of us were crying, either silently, or some were just sobbing uncontrollably. I will never forget that morning.
I have seen the assassination of John Kennedy, of Bobby Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, and much more. Now this. I am 60 years old in one month and I would wish that our next generations can be spared of tragedies like these.
