On this day of remembrance, we noticed some viewers on Twitter sharing where they were on September 11, 2001. We found it so moving, we thought we would share a few:
@mrjoezee 8 years ago I was watching Today show at 8:30am and watched the first plane fly into the tower. That day I lost a friend.
@smithla8 Shuffle from kitchen to couch, so early, coffee in hand. Today Show. Smoke pours from one tower. What's that? Oh, God.
@srgroenewold Getting my 8 year old daughter ready for school. We had the Today Show on as we did every morning. It was a typical fall day.
@estyh2o I was in my psychology class watching the today show, cause my teacher had not shown up for class when we saw the first plane hit.
@MDTeresa 8 years ago today was on the treadmill, pregnant w/my youngest, watching the today show and suddenly horror unfolded before my eyes.
@glanceasecond I was still in my robe having coffee watching the Today show. News was on the first tower when I saw, live, the plane hit the 2nd tower.
@mixmingleglow I was 5mos pregnant + a 3 yr old & watched it all happen on the Today Show. Cried & prayed all day for the world I was bringing my baby into.
