I was a little late for work on Long Island, NY and got in just after the first plane hit. My boss at the time had known about it because we had clients in the building. He brought it up on line and we were watching a live stream. It didn’t look like a small plane to me and I remember saying to people that it was no accident. We turned on the radio and we were all listening. When we heard that the second plane hit, we all panicked. Living on Long Island, we all knew many people who were in NYC and many who were downtown at the Trade Center. I remember waiting 5 days to find out if a firefighter friend was dead or alive. Thankfully, he made it. The sadness was just so overwhelming. Everyone I knew or ran into knew someone who was there.
