I was hard at work, typing away, when someone came by my desk and said an airplane just hit the world trade center. At first, I was like really? Then the longer I sat at my desk, the more unbelievable it became. I kept thinking, why would an airplane hit the world trade center. It was all over the news, so we turned on some televisions and watched in horror. Around 10:30 we were dismissed to go home. All the way home I listened on the radio, once I got home, I watched on television. I was in complete shock. I still am.

I was sitting in my Calculus class at my high school. It was 10:05am and I had just started to hear a few 'rumors' about what was going on. I heard that a plane flew into the Tower. I really didn't think much of it, the thought of terroism never entered my mind. Then at about 10:15, a teacher down the hall ran into the classroom and said that both towers were hit and that one was coming down/down. I was in disbelief. My calculus teacher knew that we were distracted and he allowed us to go into another classroom and to watch tv. As I walked into the classroom, I saw on the TV as the other plane was hitting (it was a replay of what happened earlier) and just gasped. Never in my life had I ever seen any destruction like this. I'm only 17 years old and wasn't old enough to know about the Persian Gulf War. I was obviously not alive for the attack on Pearl Harbor so I have never saw this kind of national devistation. Ever since then, I have been intregued with 9-11 and will never forget what happened.

I was at home, sleeping, because I was laid off at the time. My husband came rushing into the house (he turned around on his way to work) and yelled, "A plane just crashed into the World Trade Center!" and I said, "Was it an accident?" Then I fumbled for the remote. As soon as I turned on the tv we saw the second plane sink into the second tower. We were stunned into silence. We had two radios, two tv's, and both of our computers surfing different sites while we tried to figure out what was going on. I hope to never feel as horrified in my life. I just visited Ground Zero this past weekend (March 16th) and it was still so unreal to me. I felt sick.

Where was I. I was telemarketing for a timeshare company in Rhode Island.
As a gift to the people we would call, we would offer to them four free round trip airline tickets.

On that day, I called a women in Connecticut and began my offers to her about the four free airline tickets.
The women yelled at me through the phone, four free airline tickets!! You must be out of your mind!! What kind of office do you work for!! I am watching the World Trade Center in New York that has been blown up by a hijacked airplane and while I am watching that, another plane has hit the other tower!! Do you really think this is the time to offer that and even take a plane anywhere!! Then she hung up.

I turned to my manager, told him about this, and both of us just looked at one another. More people in the office were getting similar feedback and finally we put the TV on, and we could not believe it!!
It will be a day that I will not forget and surely the other telemarketers in the office won't.

God Bless America

On September 11, 2001 I was in class at college at jwu in rhode island. My professor came in and told us that a plane had just crashed into the north tower of the WTC. At first I thought it was a terrible accident until a student came into class and said that the south tower had been hit and the pentagon and a plane crashed in Pennsylvania. Then I was just in shock and couldn't believe it.After that everything else was cancelled and i went back to my dorm room and watched what was unfolding on TV and I could'nt believe it when they both collapsed. I was filled with unbelievable saddiness and shock. I was glued to the TV until the next morning when classes resumed. And now today even though it has been six months I still can't believe it and I will remember this day for the rest of my life. My heart and prayers go out to all of the victims of this terrible tradgedy and those effected by it. Thank You And GOD BLESS AMERICA AND NEW YORK CITY. I LOVE NEW YORK CITY AND AMERICA. GOD BLESS, SCOTT L.
