    The seventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks has come and gone, and I'm surprised there was no mention of it here in RetroJunk! Anyway, my question is:
    Where were you when the tragic events unfolded on that morning in 2001??? How did you first learn about the planes crashing into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon? What were your first thoughts and/or reactions?
    Just like now, I was in between jobs, and I got out of bed around noon that day. One of the first things I do when I get up is log onto the Internet, and the first image I saw when I logged on that morning was the black smoke billowing from the top of the twin towers. The first thought that came to mind was another "disaster" movie set in New York City, since there seems to be countless movies depicting disasters in New York (Independence Day, Godzilla, etc.). I just couldn't believe that what I was seeing was in fact real! Right away I called one of my friends who lives in New York's Chinatown and asked if this was really happening and if the twin towers are really gone, and when he said "yes", I was just shocked. I then went downstairs and turned the TV on, and all I saw was the replays of the planes crashing into the towers and the towers collapsing. It hit me personally because New York City is one of my vacation destinations and I have friends who live in the New York area.

    There were two topics on it, and because I posted my story in one, I don't see a need to talk about it in the other two.

    It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa

    Seven years ago, we were attacked by a bunch of faceless cowards. The same kind of cowards who are strapping bombs to themselves and blowing innocent citizens up, in hopes that the god they serve will reward them with a life in paradise. Sick and twisted.

    I was a sophmore in my art class in school. They had it on all the t.v.'s and at the time, I didn't really understand what was going on. But it was scary.

    I was in 5th grade. At first when all the teachers found at they had a quick meeting and told us to stay in our class rooms. After that we watched the news on it. My parents came to get me soon after that. We spent the rest of the day at my Grandma's house watching the news on it and calling the rest of our family. This was sadly the last thing I ever talked to my mother about, too, since she died a few weeks after(not related to the attacks though). Very very sad day.
