I was a sophomore at culver high school and remember getting ready for school and grabbing my bags. I watched the first tower get hit and I sat there in shock. Then the second tower then at school they announced the pentagon getting hit and another plane going down. Such a sad day for America.

I was living in Tumalo. Got up and turned on the TV and saw that one of the Towers had been hit. A short while later the second tower was hit. I knew that wasn't an accident. The terrorists are still winning. If you have been through an airport and been terrorized by TSA you know what I mean.

I was on the GW Pky on my way to work on Capitol Hill, when I saw the smoke rising from the Pentagon. I had watched Katie Couric on Today when the 1st plane hit and thought, as she did, that it was an accident. After seeing the smoke at the Pentagon, I turned around and went home knowing it was bad.

I was in a high rise building on the 11th floor in downtown Portland. It was an HQ office and they told me HQ also had offices in the Twin Towers buildings, so it hit them hard. The entire building was ordered to evacuated which we did. Pretty clear in my memory.

Getting ready for work, watching the Today show. Pretty solemn day at work. When I first saw it, I thought it was some sightseer miscalculating their path. If only . . .

I was living in the Philippines. We were watching the news and saw the towers struck. We were horrified and alarmed, but watched the TV for the better part of the next 6 or 8 hours. As members of the US Embassy community, we were also concerned about potential attacks in Manila.

I am a flight attendant for American Airlines, I have been flying for 30 years. I used to work flight #11 (BOS-LAX) for 2 years, 2-3 times a week just before 9/11, hits very close to home. RIP flight crews, they suffered before the world knew what was happening. Never forget...be kind to each other

We were in the KOA campground in Whitefish MT on the first day of a planned vacation in Alberta and British Columbia in Canada. Since the border was immediately closed we spent the week camping in Montana.

Living in Beaverton, getting ready for work. Watching the morning news when the report of the first tower being hit by a plane came on. Yelled to my wife what was happening... Then had to tell her that the country was under attack by an unknown enemy after I saw the video of the second plane hitting

Psychologically speaking teens lack the ability to consider consequences prior to making decisions and taking action. This isn't speculation, as there is scientific evidence that support this. Biologically the areas of the brain that are a part of decision making aren't fully developed until later.

If the belief is that adults convicted of violent crimes can be paroled because they won't re-offend, juveniles should also get that chance since they are more likely to change their life path than an adult.

I knew Barb, and to have her beaten by her son while conscious is beyond being eligible for parole . She was so nice and she loved him so much. I do believe some cases should be but not this one
