Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No
Knew someone who perished?: No

I was sitting in my office when one of my managers came in and said a plane hit one of the World Trade Center buildings. I asked him how he knew, and he said his wife had called him and let him know. Even though I was a little stunned at the news, in my mind I invisioned a small prop engine plane hitting the building, so the damage had to be minimal. Honestly, I didn’t think much about it at the time because I was busy…..Until he told me another plane hit the other Trade Center building……and then the Pentagon. We traveled to the break room to watch the news. I was in utter disbelief. I watched the towers fall on TV, and it just didn’t seem real. I’d always heard my folks and grandparents talk about the day when Kennedy was shot. I never put any relevance to it until 9/11. I now understand the feeling.
