    I remember exactly where I was when I heard about it on the radio, turning south onto Union from westbound Academy Blvd after dropping my 22 month old son off at daycare.

    I was living in Lincoln City OR, and worked as a cashier at the Chevron Food Mart, my shift then 3 to 11 p.m.
    I lived about 4 blocks from work, and woke around 9:30.
    I immediately turned on the TV to the TNT channel to watch one of my fave shows then--Law and Order, a rerun!
    But it wasn't on.
    Instead, I saw images of one of the planes hitting the WTC.
    I surfed the channels, and all the major stations had the same pictures.

    Then the 2nd plane hit, and the buildings fell.
    I was riveted, of course!
    I stayed watching until 15 minutes before work, when I rushed there.
    My boss, Faith Quercia, had brought her small TV so we could watch.
    As we worked, we watched the non-stop coverage.
    I watched everything in all the following days.

    Two of my most-watched movies (the DVD's I own) are Flight 93 & United 93, both about the plane that went down in Pennsylvania.
    I also own The Guys, and have read a few novels about the day.
    I own a fantastic photo book about the WTC---about everything, from its conception, its construction, to 9/11.
    The photos in it are spectacular.
    The book is VERY large---about 10 inches by two feet or more!!

    Working in my office in Tampa working with mostly relocated NYers, I heard one of the admins on the phone.

    "a plane flew into the World Trade Center? TWO planes???"

    The TV was out and on within a couple of minutes. One worker who's brother was FDNY burst into tears and walked out.
