I live about 3 hours from Oklahoma City, where the Murrah Building was bombed. I don’t remember what time it was but my mother came home and woke me up yelling at me “Get out of bed, they did it again.” So I asked her what she was talking about and she said “They bombed again.” I thought she meant Oklahoma City. I thought Oh God not again. So i got up and she had it on the news already when i walked into the living room and thats when I saw the Towers. I wasn’t fully awake yet but that woke me up. I remember watching it when the second plane hit. I saw it coming from the corner of the screen and thought “Oh my God theres another one.” I didn’t really think that was gonna hit too. But it did and i couldn’t believe that i was watching a huge airplane hit the Tower. I remember seeing a man jump out of one of the windows. I never want to see someting like that again. Sometimes I still see that man in my dreams. I can’t imagine having no other choice but to jump.
