I had been at work for about 1 hour when I heard on the radio that the 1st Twin Tower was hit. I ran to the TV in our office. The sight was horrific. I called my mom and a few other members of my family. I went home and called my best friend living in Brooklyn. She works a couple of blocks from towers. She was fine.
I think I watched a solid 50 hours of CNN for the next 4 days.
