I was in high school...10th grade. It was 3rd period - chorus class. My boyfriend at the time was in his acting class next door. He also was part of the chorus, just in a different period. Part way through class, he rushes in the room & climbed up to the room TV and turned it on. The first plane had just hit while his acting class was watching a show and he immediately came to our room. He came and sat next to me while the whole class watched in varying states of distress as the 2nd plane hit. Then as the towers fell, all the students with cell phones starting calling parents. The teacher gave access to the room phone for those without cells. Our school was in a town with a very large military base, so many people were very concerned another attack nearby. Several students, including myself, had parents rush to the school to take students home. The rest of the day was a chaotic mess of phone calls and tears while watching the news.

I tried searching all the news sites on the web, but it was impossible to connect to any. I spread the news through the office and we soon connected a television in one of the conference rooms. The site of the towers in flames was horrifying.
