To answer your question. You up airport security, very easy, heck the FBI and CIA were wire taping these people, they knew what was going to happen with the planes just not were and when.

I was designing packaging parts for Honda Motors on a CAD table when they said on the radio the tower was hit by a plane. I was thinking of something small like a Cesna or something. A few of my coworkers went and got the TV out of the conference room and we kept watching what unfolded. When the towers came down, it seemed like it was fake almost.

You can tighten up security, but I do not care how tight it is, a public place like that will always have a hole somewhere. I would not put it past terroists to put a bomb up, well their azz. Do we scan bodies for liquid bombs? Will we, nope. This is my point, no matter how good it will still be a possibilty.

i was in religion class falling asleep on the heater in the back of the room. it was my freshman year of high school. then over the PA they announced thew world trade center was hit by a plane and instructed every room to turn on their TV. our TV was of course f*cked up and by the time we got it fixed the second plane was aimed at the second tower. up until lunch we went class to class watching the news. after lunch the administration said no TVs were to be on we had to resume classes.

thinking about it gave me the shivers.

2coff stop being a ignorant dick and mourn the lost lives.

I had woken up and I was on my way to 8th grade classes that day when I heard, we watched the news all day and I was pretty interested even though i was only 13. Doesn't seem like that long ago but I was a middle schooler and now I'm in college.

I got to school(8th Grade) and went to homeroom and the TV was on and our teacher said one of the twin towers had been hit. We watched the news in every class that day and had no homework.
