SEPTEMBER 11th: Where Were You? Responses

Heather, Philadelphia: I was babysitting my 2-year-old nephew.  We were watching Scooby-Doo when my Dad called and said "are you watching TV?"  I said "of course, cartoons."  He said turn on the news a plane just hit the WTC.  Thinking a horrible accident just happened I flipped the channel just as the second plane hit the towers.  I dropped the remote and just stared at the TV trying not to alarm my nephew. I think I went numb as the enormity of the tragedy unfolded. I remember looking at my nephew and thinking the world has changed forever.
