I had just moved into a new apartment two days earlier. I didn’t have a TV hooked up yet so I was listening to my morning news on the radio. The local station I listed to said something about a plane hitting a building. Nobody was sure what was happening. They didn’t know if it was an accident or intentional. I rushed to work early so I could watch the news on TV and see the images that they were talking about. The entire time I was on the phone with friends and family to make sure everything was all right. Then I heard that there was another plane and it had been hijacked. I have never been so frightened in my entire life. And yet we still had no idea what was happening. Once at work I got a live internet feed of a local news station. Just a few moments after I started watching, the first tower feel. I still can’t put the feeling I had into words. My entire office sat glued to a 13’’ TV that someone had brought in. I just sat on the phone with my family and cried, it was all I could do.

May God watch over us and protect us from harm.
