TPG reader Mark sent me some incredible 360 degree pictures he took from the top of the World Trade Center in June of 2000. He writes, “I think it would be nice to step back in time and remember the Twin Towers as they were” and I couldn’t agree more.
I vividly remember being a Freshman at the University of Pittsburgh on 9/11/2001 and being awoken by a frantic dorm-mate saying that the “country was under attack.” Earlier that morning our entire dorm was evacuated for a fire, so I was extra tired and stunned by the news. As the events transpired we ended up getting evacuated as we learned that a plane went down outside of Pittsburgh and that more might be on the way.
Feel free to share your 9/11 story as I’m sure many of you were traveling at the time and have interesting perspectives.
