>tfw my dad nearly died in 9/11 and didn't come home for a while cause he got arrested while running away for being brown, and only got released when the tower started collapsing and the police officers told everyone to run Because he got detained by the police my dad's coworkers actually thought he had died and I got called to the main office in the middle of school for the principal to tell my that my dad had died He was all covered in dust and cuts and everything when he got home.
>>270393646 What kind of retard tells a kid that his dad dies when they don't even know for sure if it happened yet? How's about, "Your dad may have been at that building when it fell, and we're hoping for the best."
>be me >be kid >be not american >9/11 happens while iam out for recess >everyone gets brought in to the assembly hall >all the kids are told to sit down and we watch the news with the teachers >literally carries no wait on us, were fucking kids, I don't even think I knew what the usa was then. >go home early everyone on bus is talking about what happened, but no one knows what it all means >go home, parents are sad and disgruntled >kids try to push the boundaries of 9/11 jokes for next week or so, bc if a teacher or adult heard you say one they blew the fucking roof off the place (we of course still have no fucking scope of what it really means) >ameican kid from nyc moves back to u.s presumably NYC a week later, tells us his father says its the family's hamburger.. I mean duty.. as an american.
>in high school watching it on a tv that was wheeled into our room >i turn to a kid and say, "is it just me, or is it kind of exciting that something is actually happening for a change?" >disgustedlook.jpg
I still remember. I was sitting in class when i looked out the window and saw smoke from afar, then the principal came in and told the teacher to turn on the tv. We were pulled out of school early and i remember everything being chaotic, people frantically running around all scared. Even as a kid i always wondered why were people so panicked when we werent even so close to it (i lived in west new york, which is in new jersey). My dad even had to go pick up my aunt at work, she got stuck there since she worked only a few blocks away from the towers.
>>270396558 I met a lot of people who had similar stories.
A friend that I met in college said that he and his friend got kicked out of school because they were laughing hysterically at it because it was so surreal. You know when a teacher is yelling at you or something and you suddenly can't help yourself from laughing? He said they saw a clip of some guy jumping out of the building and they started laughing and got suspended.
I was 15 at the time and up until then it was always "America #1" "You can be President when you grow up!" etc. etc. so it was kind of a refreshingly sobering experience.
>>270396558 Nah, I remember that we got out of class early and I went home to drink beer and smoke pot like usual. It didn't really hit me until the patriot act and the years of extreme patriotism afterwards. Or when I got arrested at the war protest the day we starting bombing iraq.
>2001 september 11 >celebrating my 8th birthday >got peanut fucking butter cookies >sharing them with class >when all of a sudden >principal comes running in >"come here quickly abigal" >she was my teacher >hear principal yelling to her >something about "fucking terrorists" and "alex jones told us about this!" >have to cancel birthday school party thing >all students to assembly room >have to hear about 9/11 >terrorist ruined my birthday >principal is still a nutjob and molested his dad right before end of the world 2012 bs.
canadafag here, the teachers got all crazy and told us to have a moment of silence and shit
Some other classes got to watch the news in the library but they wouldn't tell us what happened and it got me mad, "hey why do I gotta be quiet wtf", they said something about a new war starting which just got me more mad because it sounded important but they still wouldn't fucking tell us what actually happened.
>>270396098 not the same guy, but im also 19, and pre-911 america is the only america i remember since my parents decided to move to another country soon after it happened, They were pretty paranoid about, though probably because we lived nearby.
>>270397113 >>270397105 December 15th or December 16th 2012 he broke into his dads home(his dad was 87 or something) and started sucking his dads dick. From what I learned is he put a restraining order on him
I was in 5th grade. I remember another teacher barging into our class and turning on the news.
The part that really got me was walking home from school that day. I live near an airport, so typically I'd see 4-5 planes every day on the way home. But on 9/11, the sky was totally empty and silent. Pretty spooky.
Why did all of us have to watch the news that day in class?
I live in Canada and I was 9 at the time, it seems weird to show people jumping out of buildings and dead bodies to a class of kids. I didn't know what it all meant and I was too young to understand what was going on.
>>270391005 as any little hue back on 9/11, I was at home watching motherfucking Son Goku turn Super Sayan 3, when, suddenly, Goku disappears and we get buildings burning for the rest of the day. Fuck 9/11 man, I wanted to watched my DragonBallz
>>270391005 I was 5 or so, woke up to my parents watching it on TV at like 4 AM. Probably watched a bit with them. I vaguely remember Cheez TV being cancelled or something, which was complete bullshit.
>>270397078 >9/11 was 13 years ago >The fear around 9/11 led to the Patriot Act, one of the most liberty oppressing pieces of legislation in US history. We stand tall and say that we won, but we lost a long time ago.
my dad was supposed to go on a buisness trip to new york but they cancelled his plane trip so he came home and said they crashed planes into the buildings and they blew up so I made a lego tower and threw a plane at it and my dad laughed and made me clean up
>>270398336 Are you autistic? You fail to understand simple contextual clues. Bu to be clear I was talking about the second most recent war in iraq, if you count this isis buisiness as a war, if not the most recent war. The one named operation iraqi freedom, not desert storm.
>In NY >Different borough but close enough >In 3rd? grade >Catholic school >A kid gets called out of class >Whatever >Happens all the time. Doctor appointment. >One or two more >Huh that's more than usual >Another worker gets the teacher's attention and they discuss something in the hall out of earshot >Suddenly intercom comes on >Principle makes us pray the Hail Mary but doesn't tell us why >She sounds upset/sad >Can tell something's going on >Teacher may or may not have mentioned the towers were attacked, bad memory >Didn't even know what they were >Thought it was a small scale thing >Like a raid >By end of the day half of my class was gone >Wondering what's going on >Kinda worried >Get picked up from school and get home >News is on all day, family worried
Took me a few days to fully understand what happened. Man this really is making me nostalgic for pre 9/11 like >>270396876
>>270391005 >wake up >be getting ready for school because alaska >done getting ready >waiting for sister who drove >neighbor a year ahead of me shows up, we also gave him a ride to school >he asks if we've seen the news >say no >turn on tv >some building on fire >we all watch the second plane hit >oh shit.jpg >run downstairs and turn on computer >check clan forums to make sure NY buddies were ok >they were >go to school and have to hear about all these people crying >a lot of people thought alaska would get attacked
It was a terribly painful day having to listen to all the whining
>Sixteen years old >Art Class >Person coming in through the door >"The US has been attacked!" >wut >Go to screening room >Watch for an hour >neato >Following week, tasked with writing a poem about the event >write angsty poem about how people accepting Bush as their president had it coming
>mfw I was sick and didn't have to go to school because of it >mfw Mom never bothered me about 9/11 >mfw I just got to chill in bed playing vidya Eventually she broke the news when I got better and the shitstorm calmed down, it didn't seem to phase me in the slightest.
>>270399227 >In WI >In middle school >They tell us what is going on pretty much as soon as it begins >Continue classes per the norm >Art teacher invites us to talk about the situation >Raise my hand "How does New York having a few buildings blow up become such a big deal to us? For the most part they might as well be in Austrailia. Why is my day getting messed up for this?".
>>270397078 I was in primary school, general reaction of most of my year was. >Oh that's weird Then we went back to being kids and not caring. Think only a few people in my school where genuinely paranoid about it.
>>270391005 >Be in class, private christian school >Intercom calls all teachers to a meeting and they all come back worried. >Its picture day, everyone is dressed up but they didn't take any pictures >So many kids getting picked up we can't hold class >When only a few kids in the school were left they put us in the gym together. >I was the only kid not picked up early and sat alone for several hours waiting and no one would tell me what was happening and why I was the only kid whose parents weren't coming.
I hardly remember what my day was like on 9/11. I was in 4th grade and I think at some point our teacher had handouts for our parents regarding the situation. I just remember the shit load of news coverage constantly playing in our house and in any friends house after that day.
>>270401224 Was there mention of that? I just reread it last year but the most I remember is ramming ships into other ships. It really did end at the right time though. I can't see it working out in modern day USA. Though I wouldn't oppose them rebooting it. Better than nothing.
