"Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter." Ernest Hemingway

I was preparing to teach a class, and got called out of the room to a television in the director's office right after the first plane was reported to have hit. We suspended class and turned the news on in the classroom. We dismissed as soon as the second plane hit, realizing that we were under attack at that time.

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly. - Lovelace

CTR and I were on our way to work and school when we heard the first radio report. I dropped CTR off at work and continued on to school where I did work study in the mornings and had class in the afternoon...usually. That day not much work or schooling happened.It's better to be hated for who you are than loved for who you aren't!

I had just got to work when the first plane hit. My wife heard the news on her car radio while she was at work and called me. I turned on the TV in my office right before the second plane hit. I have never felt more useless than during that day listening to the incoming reports and watching the events happen. When the first tower fell , the first thing that occurred to me was that there was going to be a high casualty rate among the first responders as well civilians because they would have been doing what we all do , running to trouble. May the Good LORD bless the souls of all the ones we loss that day.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army

I was scheduled to work a double for Election Duty, a modified tour starting 1200 hours, I was sleeping in and got a call when the first plane hit. I rushed and got dressed, as I headed into the Precint, the second tower was hit and two van loads of Officers were heading down there to assist. If I had been suited up I would have been in one of those vans, Everyone wanted to go down there, we were ready to comandeer a city bus, but we were ordered to wait the for the word, there was plenty of manpower on the scene. We did go many days there after, and sadly there are still people suffering from working in the area or at the dump in Staten Island where they brought rubble to be sifted thru for remains.
I remember that day like it was the back of my hand, from how it was so nice outside to getting the calls of who is missing, wondering who is ok or who perished on the scene.

Home in bed I woke up turned on the TV just before the second plane hit the towers, never got out of bed.

I was at work just finishing up my graveyard shift. The Chief called and told us. We turned on the news and watched the 2nd plane hit.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

I was at the barn brushing my horse and heard it on the radio. I thought at first it was a joke...and hurried home to watch it on tv.Never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake.
