On her Facebook wall, Cis posts: “Where were you at 6am West Coast/9am East Coast on 9/11/01??? I was driving home after getting off work, heard on the radio, that a plane hit the World Trade Center..at that time it was thought to be a small plane. But by the time I got home, it was said it was a big plane. At that time I had east coast stations on Dish. so turn on the news.. to see the news that it was a big plane.. and then to see the second one crash into the second tower. It is then I realize it was airliners. And realized the horror of it all.
Question: What were you doing when you heard about the 9/11 terrorist attack?
