I know I'm about a week early but I was just looking at some pictures on LIFE.com (check out the responder photo gallery) and I was wondering, where was everyone when they first found out about 9/11? What was your reaction?
I was 8 months pregnant with my first child. My radio had been stolen from my car a few days before so I was clueless about what was happening until I got to work. By then both towers had been hit. I walked in the front doors and couldn't figure out why the front office was completely empty. I walked towards the back to see every employee standing around a 12" TV. Most with jaws dropped. 2 military wives in tears. The fear on their faces was something I will never forget. After hearing of the other two planes come down I just went outside and watched the sky wondering if He was coming that day and praying if not then soon because I hated the idea of what 9/11 meant for the world my child was going to be brought into.
