I was working at a prominent insurance agency downtown. My mom called and told me what happened. I had a small portable black and white tv on my desk and everyone in my dept had gathered around to watch. Even my boss came out to watch. But a few minutes later, even after everyone had dispersed from my desk, my boss came out and told me to turn off the tv. She said that it was distracting from doing my job. EXCUSE ME?! How can something that changed our nation so drastically be unimportant and distracting from my job? WOW! Thank GOD I don’t work there anymore!

Myself and other students were glued to the TV watching in horror as the events unfolded. That was a day I will never forget. It was a day I knew my world would never be same again. And I was right.

That is an amazing perspective. My recollection included the follow-on actions. We, the Chief and I, were contacted by the HQ AFJROTC and advised to change into civilian clothes and to not put the cadets in any formation that might indicate that they were anything associated with the military. There was no understanding of how big the attack might be. It scared the younger cadets when we returned in civilian clothes for the remainder of the classes that day; they realized that this was truly an attack on our nation.

I was working for a prominent mortgage company at the time. I was told the news by a client. Everybody in the office was in shock, but we were told by our supervisor to “quit being drama queens and get back to work.” We were not allowed to view the news until much later in the day. Thanks Alpha.
