I too was in my car when I first heard the news. I was returning home from taking my boys to school. I remember turning the tv on and just sitting in the chair with tears steaming down my face at the site I was watching unfold.

I was at work, sitting at my desk when I heard that the first plane had hit the Tower. Everyone just seems confused and a bit paralyzed.

I was at home with the boys. I couldn't stop watching TV, stunned, praying and crying. I was beside myself worrying about my brother (a commercial pilot)my father who was working downtown, and my NYFD and NYPD relatives. Everyone was fine, thank God.

It still guts me.

I was in the breakroom at work and returned to the office to complete emptiness. It was at least 15-20 minutes before I found out everyone was in another office watching TV.

I remember thinking that the people who told me must be wrong, it had to be an accident.

However, I have never felt more peace and human kindness in the following weeks.

I had just gotten up with Emmy, and she was watching cartoons and I was getting on the computer. They had a picture up already - and I remember thinking how it was stupid that movies with such violence were being highlighted like that. I thought it was just a movie promo, I didn't bother to read the caption. Something broke in on the tv though, and then I paid close attention. I hugged Emmy close and prayed. And my mom called right after that. We spent the day together unsure of what was unfolding. I remember needing gas that day in my truck and waiting in line to get it. I was on empty already, or I would have just skipped it. It was the first time I ever felt unsafe in my country.
