Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No

So this story isn’t about me because I wasn’t born yet when this happened but I wanted to contribute to this. This is my mothers 9/11 story.

My mother was in her office doing some work. She was listening to music and drinking some tea. Her co-worker sped into the office and told everyone the news. At this point the second plane hadn’t hit yet so everyone thought it was a horrible accident so they turned on the news to get more information. That’s when the second plane hit. Now they were sure that this was not an accident. My mom is not a religious woman but she said that as soon as they got news about the second plane she got down on her knees and prayed. She prayed for the people in the towers she prayed for the fire fighters on site and though she was in Florida she prayed for everyone in that office.
