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.

We were on vacation in Boise, Idaho. The news caused us to panic and rush home to Arizona.

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

I don't know that the state should require it, but I think the insurance companies should.

"To"? Anyone who can't spell a three letter word is unpersuasive.

I'll go with "no" on this one. If there's insurance on the house, the insurer could do that. Ditto for any mortgage holder. If neither applies, I don't think we should try to regulate stupidity.

I love thunder and lightening! Don't like the fires though but do like the rain. Always on the front porch with my granddaughter whenever a thunder storm rolls in
