    I was at work when I first heard and then we all watched the day unfold in our break room. It was a devastating day.

    I was at work at the Kennedy Center, across the Potomac from the Pentagon. Since I worked in another national monument, we were sent home rather quickly. On the way to my home in Virginia, I could see the thick smoke rising from the Pentagon site.

    In my car, on my way to work. The panicked voice of the man on the radio made me think it was a joke, at first. When I got to work, I realized the truth of it all, after speaking to coworkers. I had to go back home and glue myself to the television.

    At work (in a school),on a break, going through the office checking my mailbox. The teachers were hunched over a secretary's computer, watching reports coming in.

    I remember that no airplanes flew by that day, as our school was on the flight path and then for days and days after that, and that the silence was weird.

    I was at home on a day off from work. A friend called and told us to turn on the TV. I turned it on about 5 minutes after the 2nd plane had hit.
    At the time, I worked as a Directory Assistance operator, and I knew our call center would be flooded with people frantically looking for loved ones, so I called work and offered to work some OT.
    I spent 4 hours listening to folks crying, screaming, pleading for help, doing my best to try to assist them. The saddest calls were those looking for the cell phone numbers of people that were in the WTCs, and we didn't carry that kind of info. I will never forget those sounds so long as I live...

    A remote Log Cabin in the Scotish Highlands... I heard the news on the radio some hours later, then turned on the TV.

    I work at a hotel and was at work that day. I watched the whole thing. That day was crazy with all of the people stuck and not able to go anywhere. Everyone was in shock.
