And we were there!
Not exactly "there", but we had a ring side seat.
I was on the Garden Web, as usual, that morning, when someone came on and posted "Turn on your TV quick!! A plane just crashed into one of the twin towers." (or words to that effect)
I turned my set on. A nearby TV station had windows facing the Towers. They moved one of their cameras to the window and we could see the smoke rising from the Tower. The speaker was quick on his commentary about "the accident." Soon there appeared a small black dot over towards the other Tower. It go bigger and bigger as the plane got nearer to it's target.
The speaker seemed to be almost at a lost for words as it became plain that THIS was no "accident."
Those scenes have been played over and over again, but never has it been more horrifing that watching it happen the first time.
I don't remember who the GW poster was. But it was a memory that I shall always have.
