Ten years ago, hijacked planes caused the Twin Towers to fall in New York City and thousands to flee the Pentagon, while the brave occupants of a single plane thwarted the hijackers’ plan, crashing in a field in Pennsylvania. Most of us were lucky, watching the events unfold on television. But even from a safe distance, the emotional impact of the September 11 attacks–fear, confusion, and later, pride, patriotism, indignation–will not soon be forgotten by any of us.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, we asked you to share your memories of that day. How did you hear about the disaster? What did you do?
Where were you when the towers fell?
