    I was watching all of it unfold on TV, on that dreadful day. I could hardy believe it when the first plane hit. I wish it was a bad dream instead. Doesn't seem like it's been 18 years.. R.I.P.  Never forget!

    I remember watching live on TV right after the first plane hit and wondering how a plane like that hits a building then the second plane hit and I knew America had changed and we had entered an era of war. I think after the attack we saw the best of Americans as well as sometimes we unfortunately we also saw the worst of some Americans as fear caused hate and I feel we are still dealing with some of that haltered issues.

    Yes, i remember.   

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    I remember being in my cubical and no one getting much work done that day as we had a tv rigged up and were glued to it, boss included. The person next to me had relatives that worked in the towers and later learned that thankfully they were held up before getting to work.

    I'm always a bit glued to the emergency services side of 9/11 since in my spare time I'm a Captain in the US Air Force Auxiliary / Civil Air Patrol. The various Coast Guard and Civil Air Patrol stories still interest me till today. Much like 9/11 damage assessment, I did similar sorties during Hurricane Harvey 1000 foot over downtown Houston documenting the damage with airborne photography. Most recently, I'm in charge of airborne damage assessment photography for CAP in Kansas. I train all aircrew personnel and help implement real world missions to ensure we're ready when the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center, FEMA, Kansas Division of Emergency Management or the state emergency operations center has a need. I prefer being one of those people that actually do, instead of just talking about helping others. Part of that is my personal response to 9/11 even to today.

    I remember I was in school when it happened. It was horrifying at first, because I didn't know what happened, and everyone was talking about something major and big, I thought a war started somewhere. Then teacher told what happened when the class started.

    I went out the night before to the bar (10th).  I must've gotten home around 4:00 AM (11th).  Passed out and woke up a few hours later to use the bio with the parents getting ready for work and the TV being extremely loud.  I mean we're a loud household in general but the volume level stuck out to me when I was walking by half a asleep n drunk (most likely).  I use the bio and head back and look on TV and notice a high rise fire.  That's what the media was saying so I sit down and start watching when all of a sudden from the right side view of the camera a plane came crashing in.  It went from high rise fire chatter in the media (I think it was ABC's GMA or News Room) to 'oh we know what this is now but we don't want to speculate' chatter and everyone was freaking out.  At that point, I never went back to bed. I probably had 3-4 hours of sleep at me at best.  

    Many hours later, I head out back to the cafe/bar to hangout with folks and talk about what just unfolded.  Hanging outside, having a smoke and looking at the clear dark sky (must be around midnight - 12th) and it's complete silence and I mean barely any vehicles on the road.  I mean it usually is somewhat quiet but not that quiet and you knew that night was different from all the nights.  Not a single jet in the sky since we're not too far from the airport since all planes were grounded and the airliners were soon to be bankrupt.  I look up again and notice something.  We saw a slow blinking red light.  All of a sudden it dawned on us, it's a freakin fighter jet patrolling the skies!  It was an amazing feeling after that but things were never the same after that in a societal sense.  
     
    I won't go on and on but that was my 24 hours during that time.

    It's very common for warlike violence to seem like it was yesterday, regardless of when it occurred. Not every single witness or participant feels like that, but most do (probably the great majority).  In that sense we can say the violent past is alive. In many places, invasions from centuries or even millennia before can seem to be alive today e.g. Alexander's conquests, the Mongols, etc.
