I was a Freshman in College when it happened. I remember going home in between classes and seeing it on the news and it wasn't until I went back to class and they had cancelled the remainder of the day how severe this actually was.
I watched the second plane hit live. My mom was (still is) working for OSHA at the time and she heard about the first one and called me. I turned on the tv and was dumfounded at a plane hitting a tower. Then the next one hit and I knew at that second what was happening. This event shaped a nation, shaped me.
