I Live in Levittown NY (on Long Island about 30 miles from NYC)I had just woke up and was on my way to feed my cousins dog (lives next door)as I cut across the grass to get in the house still in my pjs thier neighbor came runing out of his house barreled over the bushes SCREAMING “HURRY UP GET IN THE HOUSE GET IN THE HOUSE” he was saying something about those bastards i think. He is a NYC cop I thought someone was after him. the he says “they just flew 2 planes in to the world trade center I said “WHAT” and he “hurry up and get in the house my cable whent out” We got in and I saw the video of the second plane hitting the tower and just covered my mouth with my hand. I then called my dad and said to him “Dad put on the TV something happened to the WTC they flew a plane into it or something. I was so in shock I didnt even believe thats what happened. I went to work and everyone was talking about it.
We were all watching TV no work for us my Boyfriend called my friends were calling me. even my best friend from Las Vegas called me. No one could believe what was happening. Then we saw the pentagon then we saw the PA crash it was just such a horrible day. In the meentime my one cousin was in Disney world (i was feeding their dog remember) and my other cousin was moving home from California he was on the plane on the runway about to take off….. He has a plane ticket that says Sept. 11 2001. But anyway.. I know people who died on sept 11 firefighters and WTC personel. I also know people who were in the city and had to run home over the brooklyn Bridge. I Will never EVER will forget that day as long as I live. It has made us stronger and I will never forget it and keep my loved ones cloes to me ALWAYS!
God Bless America. just remember We have gained over 3000 Guardian Angels that day.
