Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No
Knew someone who perished?: No

I will allways remember 9-11… on that day I was working in a sports Store in my hometown, when danish radio suddenly changed to the disaster. A lot of people came into the store and asked if it was true that America was under fire; I answered that I wasn’t sure (I thaught it was a radio play, like war of the worlds). But then the news come and our worst fear came to be true.

The rest of the day, we all stood and listened to the radio, hearing all of it live… and didn´t know what to say. When I came home, I turned on CNN and sat up the rest of the day and night…….. Never in a 1000 years would I have believed that a tragedy like this could happen….. I once asked my dad what hed did when John F Kennedy was shot, and he could tell just what he did that day… And if my son one day asks me if I can remember 9-11.2001, I will answer him…”yes,that was the day the world stopped turning.”
