"Where Were You on Sept. 11, 2001?"
September 7, 2006 2:42 PM
Where were you when you first heard about the Sept. 11 attacks?
Martin Rofael, 17, undeclared
“I had just woken up to get ready for school. My friend called and said ‘Dude, did you hear the news?’”
Rachel Silver, 22, psychology
“I was in my car on my way to school. Coincidentally, I was wearing my ‘I Love NY’ shirt. I just heard an announcer say there’s a plane going into the building.”
Jules Tygiel, history professor
“I was at home getting ready to come to school. Normally, I don’t watch the news in the morning. I was on a streetcar and everyone on the streetcar looked very startled. When I came in, the secretary told me I was the only one who showed up for work. She told me about these planes crashing into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.”
Ashley Schofro, liberal studies
“I was still in high school. I was getting ready for school when I heard about it on the radio. I thought it was a joke, then we turned on the news at school.”
Jason Carpio, graphic design
“I was in the BART station. I was on my way downtown when they had an alarm and they escorted everyone out.”
