Yep, me too. I was a CNC Engineer/Programmer working at VALENITE and my cubicle bunkie had a radio that we listened to Don Imus every morning on. We hear the news, "...a plane just hit a building in New York". A few minutes later the news says it was a tower at the World Trade center and I got a chill and thought, 'that's odd', something isn't right. Then a few minutes later when the 2nd plane hit the other tower I said, 'Oh no'. After that as the news spread the company president said we could stop working as all radios were now tuned to the news. As the other hit the Pentagon and the field in Pennsylvania, tears came over many as we knew it was terrorist attack. The boss said anybody who wanted to go home could. Most of us did. When I got home I just grabbed my kids and wife an we all hugged. My youngest daughter was only a year old.
