I had just woken up and I had my radio on in my bedroom. I heard about the first plane going through the first tower of WTC. I thougt it was just a bizarre kind of plane crash. Then came the news about the second plane that it was a terrorist attack and my heart jumped into my throat. I turned on the television in the living room to CNN and heard that a plane crashed into the pentagon.Later on in the day at work on the radio, I heard about the plane going down in a field in Pennsylvania. When I got home I watched more footage on TV and that’s when I heard about the towers collapsing. I just wanted to cry, but I couldn’t. My father, who is in the Air Force, had to work all night.
