The first thng I do in the morning is fire up the computer and check my e-mail.
On 9/11/01 I logged on and I saw a news update (I subcribed to a service that e-mails news "flashes").
The headline read "plane crash's into World Trade Center".
I thought that it was prob something like a single-engine Cessna or something and went back to checking my inbox.
A few minutes later I recieved a 2nd headline "2nd plane crashes into World Trade Center."
So I went into the living room and turned on the t.v.
And watched, in stunned horror as they showed the replay of the 2nd plane impact and then watched live the controlled demolition-type collapse of the twin towers.

Where were you when you heard/saw the events of 9/11?
I was working for a fortune 500 software company in a major California city. The night prior to 9/11, I had been working late and slept under my cubicle desk.

The next morning, a janitor woke me up and said, "Go get some coffee. Then leave work and go get a stiff drink. Today, you're gonna need it." He was right. And I followed his advice.
