I didn't know about Free Republic back then.
All I could do was refresh Drudge every few seconds hoping for updates.

Neither did I. I was in my second week as a college freshman working on a report when I saw a report about a small plane hitting the WTC at yahoo.com. That was around 9:00. I had class at 9:10 and didn't go look at a TV. The class ended at 10:05, and I wanted to see if anything was new and whether the damage was repaired.

In my entire life, being only 17 at the time, I have never had such a jolting experience as the one I felt when I logged in that day. It will remain with me until my final moment on this Earth.

I hadn't logged in yet, but spent that day GLUED to my computer. Had a T1 line thankfully.

I was on the way to a meeting just as the first hit occured. An hour later, on the way back to my office, I was struck at how quiet it was. The skies of downtown Dallas are never quiet.
