or driving to the 5 towns seeing the skyline empty with a pillar of smoke will never forget that every time i drive by :(
As kids i remember every time we drove from the Ohel to Ch there's a stretch -as soon as you get of the belt onto the cunduit before it splits to Linden, where you were able to see the twin towers, and we would love pointing them out. I haven't thought about it untill recently when I was driving there with my wife and I saw the Freedom Tower going up in the exact same place. I got a little emotional, tried explaining it to my wife but she's an Out-of-towner and didnt really get it

My yeshivah was in middle of learning first Seder ( a Beis medrash yeshivah ) and we did not know about it until 12:00 .
Think we were the only yeshiva that learnt from 9:30 to 12

I was by the dentist supposed to have some kinda surgery. I frgt to take a pill before I came so the doctors were discussing if they can still operate meanwhile they put on the TV for me a few min later they had breaking news that a plane crashed in wtc and then I watched live as 2nd plane hit then everyone stopped what they were doing and were glued on to the TV. I was 11 at the time and didn't understand what it meant that America was under attack on the way back to school my mother explained it to me. then my mother called my sister that was still sleeping and scream that the whole world is falling apart and your sleeping so she jumped outta bed and broke her toe!!
But I'm still proud to be from clev!

i was in Class then (Rabbi Weimer in HAC). it was right after shachris and his wife -the secretary- came in and whispered something into his ear. then he became very serious, he told us that the world trade center has been hit. then his wife came in again to tell him about the 2nd one. - she was the only one in the school who listened to the radio every morning.
now, a kid like me that i was, brought up in a frum house with no television or internet (well there wasnt much) didnt really know what the WTC was. i only knew about the twin towers, i didnt know they were called WTC :) so i asked my rebbi, what the world train center was!! lol
