Re: [allthingshistory] Re: Where Were You Five Years Ago This Morning?
- I was in the kitchen cooking dinner, switched my television on to pictures of the the North Tower burning. aAs many people, I thought we had a disaster movie on the channel.I think it was the most horrific act of vengence or call it what you will. My husband and I were glued to the TV for a couple of days at least.----- Original Message ----

Subject: Re: [allthingshistory] Re: Where Were You Five Years Ago This Morning?Well...In High School (I was a senior) I had what we called first period (most schools call it zero period, I don't know why mine was so dumb.) But anyway, that started at 630am PST. Ironically, if I had turned on the TV before heading out the door, I would had watched the second plane hit live. Anyway, as I came out of class at 730, my girlfriend at the time came and told me what had happened (well, as far as anyone knew.) For the next hour or so I listened to everyone's conflicting reports of everything from the WTC, to the White House to LA being bombed. The whole time I was waiting for my dad (Mr invasion USA himself) to come and get me. As I knew he would, he came by 800 and took me home where I turned on the TV and hung up the first American flag I could find, using shoestring because it was what I had. We holed up for a couple days to see what would happen (paranoia is a wonderful thing) then returned to life as (almost) normal.
