  1. It was a Tuesday morning and I had just dropped off the twins and my son at school and heading to the Bronx where I worked, i was a the gas station listening to (103.5 KTU) when i heard " NEW YORK CITY HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN" I thought to myself wtf how am i going to get to work? Went home double parked my car turn on the tv and saw the smoke from the first building at this point we thought it had bee...n an accident but when i saw the second plane hit we knew this was an HORRIFIC act of terrorism. I didn't move from that living room from almost 24 hrs. As the they showed people jumping out of the towers to their deaths not knowing that the building would collapse, then when the first tower came down i was in TOTAL DISBELIEVE and then the second tower OMG all i could think of was all the people in them,all the families who would never see their loved ones.

  2. At first, it was total shock and disbelief that something so horrible could happen in the US, but then when the reality of this horrific event sunk in, all I could do is cry for three straight days. I do mean gut-wrenching crying. I have to give former President Bush a tremendous amount of credit for leading us through that terrible time, and have great respect for his deep faith in God. I, too, have deep faith that God will continue to bless America and we will be restored to the strong nation we have always been.

For the husband who told his wife he loved her bfor his plane went down in a field, for the wife who stopped on the stairs to call her husband and tell him she will love him forever , for the mums and dads that kissed ther kids that morning for the last time, for the police, firemen and all the ppl that rushed to help and then lost ther own lives, for the loved ones loved and also left behind 9/11 we will always remember.

  4. We lost our niece, Vanessa, on that tragic day. She was 21 years old and 3 weeks into her first job after graduating with honors from Georgetown University. She was an exceptional human being and always older and wiser than her years. We think of her every day and regret the loss of a young life and great potential snuffed out. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who lost their lives and the families they leave behind.

  8. I remember that morning, I was getting ready to go to work. I use to work 3 blocks away from the World Trade Center, right off her Albany Street. I will normally get off the 1 Train by Courtland Avenue at Exactly 8:42 to 8:45 A.M. I would have been crossing the plaza between Tower 1 and 2 around the time the first plane hit. Luckily, I decided to call out sick from work that morning. R.I.P the victims :(
