"I thought it was interesting the person blasted Lt. Gov. Brown for coming up here and talking about the budget deficit and what needs to be done. That's more than can be said for the Ehrlichs. Mr. O'Malley and Mr. Brown have only been in office less than six months, so where do you think that deficit came from? The last administration. At least he came up here to show some interest in Western Maryland. " - Hagerstown suburb "During the Vietnam period, Americans were hated all over the world.

Editor's note: The Herald-Mail asked readers to tell us their memories of 9/11. Many of you replied, sharing your poignant accounts of how you learned about the terrorist attacks and how it affected you. On Sept. 11, I was on my way to work in Germantown, Md., when I turned on the radio. Rather than the usual music, I heard a news story and the announcer sounded a little shaken. I thought at first it may have been a commercial or a special very early-Halloween promotion of some kind.

HAGERSTOWN- A firefighter - a brother - died on a cataclysmic call at the World Trade Center. An investment banker - a brother and a son - called home just after a plane hit his tower. Employees at a Hagerstown office heard a phone message from a New York City colleague and wondered if she survived. At the Pentagon, a worker ducked under a desk when a plane hit the building. An Air Force officer evacuated after being told that a bomb had gone off, but realized the truth was more terrible.

On Sept. 11 I was on my way to work at Citicorp and I heard on the radio at 8:48 that a plane had hit the World Trade Center. I really didn't think much of it until they started talking about terrorism. Right after I heard this on the radio I happened to be at the stop sign right across from the Hagerstown (Regional) Airport and while I was sitting at the stop sign a plane flew right over my head. It was crazy. After that I went to work as usual in customer service at Citicorp.
