My daughter was born on 9/9, so on 9/11 we were taking her home from the hospital. We didn't have the TV on in the hospital room, because we were anxiously awaiting the doctor to come and officially release us.
When a nurse came in, she said, "You don't have your TV on, so you missed it. Some nut flew a plane into one of the twin towers." We were like, "Whaaaa?" We turned on the TV and caught the second plane hitting.
I remember driving home from the hospital with the news on the radio - hearing about the pentagon plane, and the other plane that crashed. It was definitely surreal. I also remember being so angry - not only because of what happened to all the people, but because this was supposed to be a wonderful, exciting day for our family, and it was pretty much ruined. I thought, what kind of a world are we bringing this child into? We didn't know how far this had extended, and when it was going to end.
My husband was very depressed about the whole thing. He had the cable news on pretty much 24/7, until about the 3rd day, when I insisted it get turned off. We had a new baby, and I was damned if I was going to let those a-holes ruin it anymore for me.
Yeah, it ruined my brothers wedding.
