    I was 20 years old, and a student at Mississippi State University.  I had a 9:00 class that Tuesday morning, Microbiology with Dr. Downs in Hand Biological Sciences building's large auditorium.  I hopped in my white Toyota Corrolla to leave for class and I couldn't turn the radio to a station that didn't have news.  It didn't take me but a second to realize that it was Peter Jennings' voice I was hearing, and obviously something very, very serious was going on.  As I got to campus I just sat in my car and listened until the last possible second before class, and when I got there everyone was abuzz.  Dr. Downs came in and said, "we're not going to be here but a few minutes today.  There's some fires going on upstairs that I've got to get back to".  (his office was up there and had a tv)  As soon as he let us go I skipped my next class and rushed home to park myself in front of the tv.  My roommate and I just sat there the rest of the day amazed and scared.  I remember bawling when they showed flags hanging all over New York and America, bawling when I heard the details, bawling when I heard about the last phone calls by the passengers of the plane in Pennsylvania.  Aaron called me and told me he loved me.  We were still basically kids with no idea how to processes that day.  

    Today they were playing nonstop footage from that day on a local radio station, and Super G asked me what was going on.  Strangely enough I couldn't even explain it to him without bawling again, 10 years later. 

    Isn't is amazing how much truth is in the statement "we'll never forget"?
