On the 8th anniversary of the horrific attacks of 9/11, the nation mourns the loss of life and the loss of innocence. On this day in 2001, I was living in California and working in the investment industry at a private firm. I woke up just before 6AM Pacific (just before 9AM eastern) and turned on my TV just in time to watch the second plane plow into the World Trade Towers. Where were you when you learned of the attacks? Tell your story in the comments.
