I was at work. Oddly enough, originally I would have been flying into NYC that day, but my business trip was postponed, so I was in the office. Good
thing too, or I would have been stranded there for days...
One of the employees heard about the plane hitting, on the radio, just after it happened. A bunch of us realized something important was going on, and
jury-rigged a training TV (usually for training videos) to get a news channel in.
The second plane hit just minutes after we got the TV on. At first, we thought it was footage of the plane hitting, not realizing it was ANOTHER
plane, until the news clarified.
Then it went from speculation of terrorism, to a sure thing. All I could think of was that this was the start of WWIII, and this was probably just one
instance of a worldwide hit. Thank goodness those fears were unfounded.
As the day went on, more stories emerged, we saw the towers fall, and the confusion in the media seemed to go on for days. Seemed no network got the
story straight, whether it was casualties, about the planes going down, etc.
Seeing those folks jump from the burning building....knowing how many died trying to get out, or those who died while trying to help others out...just
tragic, and senseless...
