Jacqueline Maccagnano: I was at my office on the 5th floor, directly across the river from WTC. I didn't see the planes hit but watched the fires burn until the buildings collapsed. I could not believe my eyes. I will NEVER forget all the souls I saw taken that awful day. I saw the smoldering heap every day on my way to work for months following the attack. A constant reminder of the hatred in the name of religion. To the victims & the rescue workers ~ RIP.
Fabian Florez: I had just returned from a deployment (AWACS) in Saudi Arabia. I was on the treadmill at the base gym (Tinker Air Force Base--Oklahoma City). I vividly remember watching the images on the TV but I don't think any of us had ANY idea of what really was happening. I guess after being gone for 180+ days in took awhile for my brain to decipher it all.

Angie Muhs: At my obstetrician's office, 10 days from having a baby. Didn't even know about the attack until almost 10 am because I was in an exam room with no tv or radio; the staff almost forgot I was in there.
Aurelio Cuervo: At a job interview in Miami Lakes, seconds after the second plane hit the second building, the human resource woman (an Arab) told me "you heard what happened in NY? there's going to be war now, what would you do if you drafted and sent?" my response without thinking twice... "I'll go kick some ASS." The company never hired me... Oh well.

Susanne Restemayer: I was sitting in a restaraunt in Largo, FL waiting for my breakfast. The whole place went silent, we were confused because no one was sure what was actually happening. Was it plane crash? But when the second plane hit everyone knew it wasn't. I will never forget and will always be haunted by countless people jumping from the windows of the burning towers.
Marika Lynch: Hiking through Spain. Two goat herders told me. I didn't believe them.
