    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.

    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.

    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.

    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    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.

    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.

    I was at work. It was my last week before going to a new job. I remember calling a guy in our IT department to tell him what was happening and he thought I was joking around with him at first.

    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.

    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.

    At home. Dad called me to wake me up and turn on CNN, and I saw the second plane hit.

    Went to the base later that day, was given 24 month orders 11 days later.

Our beloved DOJ Police were not taking any chances, it was Threat Condition Delta, and they were searching everybody, and I mean everybody. When I finally got to my building, the TV was on in the main break-room and saw the second plane hit, the pentagon disaster and also flight 93 in Pennsylvania. Needless to say all resemblance of work was shot for the day except for any commercial trucks that needed to be unloaded. I remember thinking what is this going to do to our guys and gals in the military and their families let alone the tragic loss of life suffered that day. Most everyone sat glued to the TVs dumbfounded. I was numb for several weeks after that. It changed my life forever and brought a new meaning to me to support our personnel serving in the military. I still cringe every time I hear that we lost yet another soldier over there in Iraq or Afghanistan.

    At home, in bed. Mr Ducky woke me up just after the first plane hit, and we huddled together for comfort the rest of the morning.
