Non-US citizens -- what do you remember about where you were when you first learned about the events in the USA on 9/11?

Just read a powerful and heartwarming reddit thread on this topic and wanted to bring it to our Glow sisterhood.  The three things that stood out most:  1) how much love, empathy and support the world extended that day and in the weeks that followed 2) how deeply it altered ones sense of security in all parts of the world (not just in the USA) 3) how many people were watching the Simpsons (seriously, lol).  (In the US, it was too early for the Simpsons).  
Please share your memories below.  What country were you in?  Where were you when you heard the news?  How did it make you feel?  What the general sense in your country?
