- I was a Longboat Key Firefighter, I came in early on 9-11, drove our laddertruck to the GMD across from the colony and parked. I thought about driving into the colony but thought our Fire chief would reprimand me (I was already on his list). I saw the motorcade come out of the colony, waved at the president. I went back to out station 2, started mopping the floors when I was told about the first plane. When the second plane crashed, I started to wonder if a plane was coming our way, and about to crash into the colony, Air force one or the school.
- The morning of 9/11, I heard the TV on in our conference room. A room full of co-workers were in there and seeing the alarm on their faces, I asked what was going on. One replied that a plane had struck the World Trade Center and a moment later, we all watched in horror as a second plane flew into the other tower. A few moments later, I quietly turned to the room and said, "I am going to go lower our flag to half mast and say a prayer."
I would like to think that the American flag at the Wake County Public School System's Central Services Complex was one of the first flags to be lowered that day.
