I was 3 but have no memory f it and I am sad for that
I was only one year old when this happened, but my mom was at home with me and my sister watching it on TV, and my dad was out at work.
I was almost 1 and my mom tells me that on that day I said my first word and it was "dead" later she turned on the TV and saw that the towers had been hit and cried because I lost my uncle in the first tower he jumped out before he was suffocated. I wish he were still here. R. I. P. John. We love and miss you! R. I. P to everyone who passed on and thank you for keeping our country safe!
I was 1 and on the way to my aunt's house
I was almost two and sitting on my mommas hip she says

It was a month before I turned 1 and my mom said when it happened we went to my grandparents
I was at work and we had it up on a large plasma screen. I knew four people that were killed. Two were NYPD and two worked in the Trade Center. Another friend who is NYFD was inches from being killed. He and few others dove under their fire truck when the building started coming down. Half of his firehouse was killed
I love how everyone has left comments on where they were that day, like the song asks... It's touching to read how it effected everyone. I love songs like this that make you think and want to share memories.

It was my daughter's 1st birthday so I had taken the day off work. I was grateful I had so I could be home with my family as we cried together watching the tragedy on TV.
I remember I was in the car with my mom and brother, and it came on the radio, and I was so scared.
Where Were You When When The World Stopped Turning
Where were you when the world stopped tuning one of the. Best damn songs ever written.
I was play with my sister when this happened it was a horrible day.
I was really little when it happend rip to those who died
I was only about six months old and to this day I what to kill all the terrorist for what they did they can just rot
I wasnt born, but all the people who died God bless them and their families, thank you to all the people out there who fight to make this country safe for us, thank you

I was really little and had no clue what was going on... That day I was sitting in my room playing with my toys... I love this song so much but it makes me wanna cry
I sat in my truck at work and cryed I thought the world was gona end , but it didnt
I was in the 9th grade when it happen. Teacher turned it on, and we watched in horror as the second tower was strucked by the plane. Still remember as if it was yesterday. This year I visited one world trade center and the memorial. If you haven't been its absolutely wonderful.
Makes me cry, and love those who fight for the red, white, and blue even more

Just turned on to Hermiston Ave and I heard it on the radio. I couldn't believe it. For a moment I thought it was a prank, then it sunk in. May those to were killed rest in peace and may their killers rot in hell.
Love this song it has such a great meaning behind it... that day was an awful day and no one will ever forget it, young or old.
i was little and scared and a few years later i learned that my school principals parents died in the first tower and he went to the blockcade by the towers and cried i thought that i had a big problem but then realized he had it way worse than me god bless the first responders
I was 10 year old and in school and my teacher brother call her and told her what happen and she told us and we all started crying in school to
P.S this is THE MOST TOUCHING song ever :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( R.I.P. to all that died doing what they did. Because of this, when I'm older i wanna join the N.Y.P.D.
I was 1-3 i remember coming home fron pre-K (half days so got home at noon) and my parents were watching the news sobbing.

I remember going to a doctors appointment. My mom waa driving me I was 5. My dad called her on the phone and said wat happened. She pulled over and cryed for about 25 min. My friends cousin died in 9/11. God bless all soldiers that recognize this in your heart and fight for us. Loooove home of the free and the brave!! :))

I was in 3rd grade at recess. & my teacher made us come in & she turned on the TV. I didn't understand then what was going on. But eventually I figured it all out.
I was in first grade. When I went home from school my mom sent me downstairs to play so that she could watch the news and not have me see it. She told me not to watch the news, but I went downstairs to play and watched despite that. I don't remember how much I understood but I remember knowing that this was going to lead to something really bad.
I was just a little kid. All I knew was there was a bunch of people that had died. I cried. Now that I learn about it every year, this song is the most touching song that could have been made for that event. I was told that Alan Jackson heard about 9/11 and sat down and wrote this song in 20 minutes. When he sang it for the first time on stage, people were so moved that they stood up and clapped for about five full minutes.
I was having breakfast and getting ready for school. I was about to change the channel when I noticed that the towers were smoking. I called my mother in and that's when the second plane crashed. I even remember the meal, eggs and toast. It was that significant in my life. God bless America. We will never forget that horrible day.
I was in first grade art class when it happened. They turned on the t.v and I remember watching it and not really understand until my teacher explained it to us.
No one will ever forget 9. 11. 01! Sad, scary, all those that suffered and passed away. Never forget
Thank god for the people who died for our lives
I was three and half but I swear I remember that day. God bless America and the ones lost that day.
