Boy, its a young crowd here....

I feel old! 

I was 20 at the time, learning in Israel... Watched it unfold on (I assume) the only TV in Bais Yisroel.

i was in 8th grade at the time, in ysv (for all those mentioning yeshivas) and my rebbe came in and said there had been a gr8 tragedy and a plane hit the twin towers. of course we didnt believe him and then the princibal came in said another plane hit, and a few min later said one building fell and then another,

we didnt fully understand the severity of it all, until i got home and i was too glued to the tv all night and i rememeber seeing guliani speaking to the press.

though @sky it hit me much later on, but it really hit me at my brothers wedding when my sister in law walked down with her mother....and her brother, bec her father was killed in the attack,

Was in London. Had a flight back to NYC and from there one onto GYE to run high-holiday services there.
Needless to say, I wasn't able to catch my flight back to NYC and, in turn, my flight from NYC-GYE.
(Ultimately United refunded me my way nack from LHR-NYC).
A new trip was arranged from LHR-MAD-UIO-GYE to get there on time for R"H.
I remember davening shachris in UIO and some airport personnel almost ripped out my tefillin off my head saying I had some weird "devices" on...
Also on my UIO-GYE flight I sat next to two Arabs and, to add to my nervousness, the flight was as turbulent as ever.. One of the arabs slowly pulled out a handwatch from his shirt pocket as the plane was running for takeoff, looked at it and put it back into his pocket.. My head started playing all kinds of movies...
Yes, everyone was terrified as the new were fresh..

Was just after my sheva brochos, and although I wasn't in the USA, I knew of the twin tower and what it meant to the americans.

I was thinking:"Hell, this means a third world war"...

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
