That is what I said when I first flipped on CNN and it clicked in my head what my eyes were seeing. I was 14 and a Freshman in HS at the time. My story is no different from most everyone else’s. I woke up to shower for school. I was eating breakfast checking my email, and decided to flip on the tube and see what b.s. was on the news (lol). I was scrolling down and passed CNN and got a glimpse of what looked like a burning building. “That looked weird”, I thought, so I scrolled back. There it was. It was so surreal I didn’t know what I was looking at for a few seconds. I said “oh s#$%” and watched. Then, a second plane came into the camera shot 5 minutes later, slamming the other tower. I watched for about 10 more minutes then had to rush to school to finish a science test. I got there and no one seemed too worried about what was happening. I went upstairs to the classroom, and was finishing the test when a teacher ran in and said they just hit the Pentagon. A few of the teachers had the radios on and were frantic. So, throughout the day all but 2 of my classes had the tv’s on so we could watch the horror unfold, or sleep (lol) as some did. The world really seemed to stop that day. I had just been in NJ that summer seeing family, I live in Dallas, and had my pic taken with the WTC behind me on Liberty Island.
