It was a normal day of getting ready for work for me in Indiana. It was about 10 minutes before time to leave when my wife called me from work and told me what was going on. I think I had one sock on and the other was off. I sat and watched the live broadcast in total shock.

On the way to work I heard over the radio a gentleman alleging that he thought he heard an explosion at the Pentagon. I wondered what else was going to happen this day.

Nobody at work had heard anything when I arrived. They thought I was a blathering idiot when I announced it.
Our store stayed open that day, I wish we had closed. I was helping customers for about an hour. During that time both towers fell. In hindsight it is obvious, but at the time I had no idea they were going to fall.

We had visited Manhattan for the first time just 4 weeks prior and we were going to see the city from atop of the WTC, but we walked so much that day we couldn't continue. Now I'll never know.

I was feeding my baby in the lounge, glancing at the tv occasionaly as he had his bottle of milk. A news flash came on, showing footage of the 1st plane hitting the WTC...it seemed like a Hollywood movie....surreal.

I grabbed my son up from his rockingchair and held him so tight..watching....unbelieving at the screen....blank faced...I couldnt cry..was desperately hoping at first that at anymoment, people would come rushing out of those buildings...the horror went on and on...people waving from the windows..i couldnt turn away from the events, yet each moment was like torture...I felt i HAD to watch..to believe?

I was numb for days...everything and everyone became more precious....

I remember I was at work and one of my co-workers announced that someone had crashed into one of the towers. At first everyone thought it was an accident, but when it was announced that another plane struck everyone was pretty much in shock. I remember thinking that if there was any time that we all needed to pray to GOD it was on that day.
I pray that the Lord will give strength to those who are weak, courage to those who have fear and peace to those who have lost someone.

My family were all out of the country - my parents were in Italy, and my sister was studying in West Virginia (USA). I don`t usually turn on the TV in the mornings, but for some reason I did on the 11th September. The news was just breaking that a plane had gone into one of the Trade Centre buildings, and I just watched in total horror and disbelief. The worst thing was that I knew about it before my sister, and I had to ring and let her know.

I still can`t get my head around it - it still hasn`t fully `sunk in`. Mostly I try not to think about it, but I know that it`s never far away.

I was in my car coming home from work,
as a nurse i heard that a plane had crashed into the twin towers, and it was an accident..... then as i continued to drive the horror unfolded.
I cried most of the way home, i couldnt understand how anyone could commit such evil on another human being.
A year on watching the pain and suffering of those families affected by the tradgedy my heart still sinks and i feel an incredible disbelief still.
Watching the strength and resiliance of the people of new york has made me slowly believe in the overall goodness of people.
Those who give there all and there lives for others.
A year on i know i will always remember how i felt on and after that day and hope that no city will ever have to suffer again the agony of 11th Sept
God Bless
