I was sitting in my living room, with the TV on VH1. I had just gotten out of the shower & had sat down for some last-minute studing for my real estate license test that I was supposed to take @ 11am. I remember the Sugar Ray video for “When It’s Over” was playing, & was interrupted by CBS. I looked up at the screen to see the first tower billowing with smoke. I could hear the anchor saying that a plane had flown into the Worlds Trade Center.

My first thought was “Oh my God! They’re going to blow us all up.” I called my mother & she told me that she had seen a plane fly into the second tower & that one had crashed into the Pentagon. I was really sure then that everyone was going to die that day. I live very close to Oak Ridge, TN & I was so scared that a plane would be flown into the nuclear plant there. I prayed to God to help us, & I believe he did. He gave us the heroes on Flight 93 & the brave NYPD & FDNY who saved as many as they could that day. God bless you all & GOD BLESS AMERICA !!!
