    Hattie Powell-Rey, 52 — Harrisburg, Virginia

    I was working in the Pentagon — up on the fifth floor.

    Before the plane hit the building, a group of us were actually watching the twin towers coverage on TV. Then we felt the impact. The plane hit just three wings over from where we were.

    We weren't sure what had happened. My initial reaction was fear.

    Today, I want people to take away peace, to not live life in fear, but just always be mindful of what 9/11 stood for, and where we were as a country at that time. Live each day like it's going to be your last, because you just never know.

    I still work at the Pentagon and knowing that I was here in the building that day, even the way I see the building, I just view it differently.

    It will never be the same after 9/11.
