Example:

'where were you when you first heard the news of September 11th?'

I was at my mate's house. 3 (surprise), 4 (emotion), 5 (clarity)



----------------------------------------------


'5' is the highest score you can give, 1 is the lowest. If you give give, say, '5' for 'clarity' it means that you rember this with a lot of clarity and the same for 'emotion' and 'surprise' etc etc...

Nope, it doesn't. But Firenze is a regular poster and a forum manager, and if we can help him, I'm sure it's not too much trouble to look at one extra topic on the frontpage of the Fiorentina XT forum.

Worked. I work at a financial news organization and heard about it when I walked in. The event threw all prior plans for the day out the window and so we scrambled to see what resources we had and how we could cover it (a major video hub with all the lines that come into out of the city is located near that site and got knocked out). Knew it was going to be a long day because the city blocked all transit coming into Manhattan and those of us already there were the only people who were going to be coming in that day (nobody would be relieving us after our shifts were supposed to end).

1-Walking into work a couple of hours early. I had a dentist appointment that morning that they seemed to have lost, and so since I was only a block away from work went in rather than went back home. (1-2-5)

2-My Co-workers. (1-2-5)

3-I was getting off the elevator and walking into the newsroom when the secondplane ran into the towers and it was at that moment when I first realized something was going on. TV monitors all over the room were showing it and there was a lot more activity on the floor than usual. (1-2-5)

4-Lots of shock, but for the most part people dove into their jobs of reporting (or supporting the reporting). A number of co-workers knew people who worked there and so were concerned that people they cared about were in danger and so aside from doing their work many were making calls to friends and family to see if they were all right and to let others know of their own safety. Also there was concern over the possibility of our building being next (since we're a media company that covers financial markets and the terrorists hit the Twin Towers which were full of financial companies some thought we'd be a target). (1-4-5)

5-Like most people around me I dove into my job and when I could made personal calls to various friends and family. Though I didn't think the building I was in was likely to be a target, I did have a strong sense of wondering "what's next?". Braced myself for the long day ahead (coming early in the morning and left well after midnight). (1-2-4)

Wow... must have been one heck of an experience being there and so close to the incident! Any trauma?

It was, to say the least, an interesting experience, though NYC is pretty big so even though it was in my city, I was kinda far removed. Didn't have any direct involvement when it was happening (did all my work in our studios that day - didn't go down to the scene). Still, it was very freaky with it happening in my city at places I was very familiar with (a summer job I had when I was still in school was being a messenger in the Lower Manhattan area) and, like I said before, there was the strong sense of wondering "what's next?". The smell of smoke was everywhere in the city for over a week not letting you forget what happened for a moment. I myself don't have any trauma from the whole experience (that I know of at least), but my younger sister works close to the Financial District and had a close up view of it all, and every so often she'll just break out crying.

Still, I feel kinda awkward about how much talk the events of 9-11 get. I mean it was bad, but so were the broken levees in New Orleans, the tsunamis that hit Asia and Africa last Christmas, the earthquake in Iran the Christmas before that, the terrorist attack on the school in Beslan Russia, not to mention the US's military activities and their consequences in Iraq - and these are just things comming off the top of my head. Unfortunately there have been a lot of traumatic events that have happened in the world over the past few years.
