I was unemployed at the time of the terrorist day. I was asleep when all of the sudden I jump up out of bed and looked at the t.v. At first I thought it was a movie but then I realized it was for real. I sat there for a moment and listened to the news and they said that to trade center has been hit. As I was watching I saw the second plane coming. I couldn’t believe it, I thought that this couldn’t be reality. As I continued to watch I heard them saying something about the Sears Tower. They thought that it was going to be next. I don’t think I have ever been so scared in my life.
My Mom works in the Sears Tower on the 60th floor. I couldn’t be by myself, I went to my friends house. I tried to call my mom at work but there was no answer. So I left serveral messages on the machine at home to call me at my friends so I know she was ok. When I saw mom they said they had evacuated the entire building, so she came home. I was so happy to see her and glad she was alright. I didn’t loose her but I can just imagine the feeling of loosing her. My heart goes out to everyone with lost loved ones. It could have been my mom. My prays go out to all of you who were there and the armed forces,police, firemen and other who helped with everything. I used to serve in the Army and I wish I would’ve stayed to help out all of those people. I will be thinking of all of you.
