This is Irene & John Johnstone of Woolsington, England.

We had left England for Boston, Mass, connecting with flight KLM/NorthWest Airlines 6037 departing at 14:15 from Amsterdam.
We had settled into a very comfortable flight and the aroma of lunch being served further up the aircraft. When all of a sudden the stewardesses and cabin staff made a disappearing act and the BBC News which was on the overhead at the time was switched off. There was a complete quietness throughout the plane and one gentlemean sitting next to me became very tense and started to wring his hands in anguish, he was very frightened.
Although we all knew something was amiss it was some time before an announcement was made confirming a mechanical fault and the need to return to Amsterdam.
The crew were excellent in their reassurance that it was not a serious problem and advised that we would see fuel being dumped from the wing tips.
We could see on the display our track back over Ireland. England and then to Holland.
On landing we were advised about the horror which had occurred.
This will always remain in our memories until the day my husband and I die. It was awful but I shall always remembber the bravery of the NorthWest Airlines crew on that flight and there calm reassurance.

God Bless to all those who have suffered in this terrible tradgedy and one day we shall visit America again.

I was with a very dear friend who had proposed to his girlfriend at the Windows on the World restaurant at the top of the World Trade Centre.
It was a moment that changed the world and as we watched it unfold on television it was beyond belief.

My thoughts go out to all those that suffered on that day particularly those who so bravely went to help others. Let us all hope nothing like this ever happens again.

On that awful day I was on leave and saw the terible events unfold whilst watching television. My thoughts were with those poor innocent people in the planes and towers as all unfolded before me.WHY could this happen WHY should this happen. Who were the evil scum behind it. As we approach the first year of this awful happening I like many can still see those terrible pictures that will live with me forever.
If I close my eyes and recall the events I still see the impact and the following events unfold. Those poor poor people that perished. The hope I have is that the good people on this planet revenge that terrible day and remove the evil so called 'humans' before they can repeat such an act. To hell with the 'do gooders' who stand on the side lines saying don't retaliate. If we dont react to those evil bastards out there god help us. I hope and prey that AMERICA does continue its fight against terrorism and support him in his views and actions over the worlds evil.

I was sitting at work in Scotland (I work for the local Council (city hall). My dad was in hospital following a major throat cancer operation and I had just got word that he was going back to theatre so the surgeons could have a look at something. I remember feeling very worried about that when a guy I work beside got a phone call from his wife. He told us that a plane had just crashed into one of the Twin Towers and I remember thinking to myself, I always thought the twin towers were those big buildings in New York but I must be wrong as it would no way be them. Then his wife phoned again to say that another plane had hit the other building. Another phone call confirmed that both buildings had collapsed. We just couldn't believe it. To think we are sitting at work on an afternoon while that atrocity was happening (I think it was 2.30 pm or thereabouts). I remember getting home from work and that was all my husband and I could watch on the news. My little girl was only 2 and I thank God for that as she was too young to be worried about it. My prayers are with everyone affected by that and also for the world as a whole, goodness knows where we are heading.

It was the third day of my work experience at a Stockbrokers in the City of London. Being Stockbrokers they had Bloomberg on 24/7. We all watched in horror as the events unfolded. At first everyone thought it was just a accident, but as the second plane plowed into the second tower the reality struck us.
Britains' deepest sympathy goes out to all who were affected by the cowardly and atrocious event. We cannot express how we all felt by your great loss. This October i will be visiting Ground zero to pay my respects with my family. Be strong, and God bless.

Let us just pray that no one has to pay such a great price again!
