Where were you on September 11...

I was in my bed, feeding my 4 week old son and watching the Today show and/or Regis and Kelly.  The newsbreak came on and as the smoke was coming out of the first tower, I saw the 2nd plane hit live.  And all I could think was, please God let this be an accident!  Watching the news coverage for the next few days was magnetic.  I could not turn it off and I did not want to leave the house.  I kept waiting for happy news.  Finding people alive, it was all a big joke...something.  As we all know that never happened.  The world would never be the same for my son.

Out here in the west it was a bit before six. My daughter heard it on her radio when her alarm went off. The kids saw the second plane hit and then left for school. I thought about keeping them home but decided to send them. I think it was the right decision. Teachers did have kids watch tv but there was some structure to their day and breaks from the news. My brother, in SF, took his kids to their preschool so they would not be able to watch tv. The kids and their parents stayed there all day with a couple parents listening to the radio to update everyone.
