Remembering Where You Were Sept 11, 2001

Each of us have memories of where we were ten years ago today. Andy and I were doing the Tuesday morning radio show on WTRV FM. I remember glancing at the television in the corner and the first shots of one of the World Trade Center towers on fire. Like everyone, we wondered how in the world could a commercial jet strike a building so visible on such a clear September day. There rest, well…you know.

The events of September 11th, 2001 are still firmly etched in the minds of most Americans, even ten years later. Ninety-five-percent of those taking part in a new Harris Poll say they “clearly” remember and 84-percent “very clearly” remember where they were and what they were doing when they first learned about the terrorist attacks against the nation. In addition, 68-percent admit the events of that day sparked a permanent change in them. The terrorist attacks have caused some to be more safety conscious, as 29-percent “pay more attention to emergency exit signage and routes,” and 14-percent “take fire drills more seriously.” Just under 20-percent admit September 11th has affected their habits and attitudes toward air travel, and 14-percent are now “more nervous” about taking public transportation. However, 38-percent say they now “appreciate life more,” and 22-percent now “spend more time with family and friends.”
