MICHAEL G'S STORY
Visited NYC 30 days before the tragedy. Family had dinner at Wild Blue, a part of the restaurant Windows of the World. Was seated next to a window and got great videos of inside the restaurant, the other tower and the Statue of Liberty. Watching the towers coming down was especially emotional for us as we had the chance to talk to many of the employees who worked there. We felt much more attached to the disaster.
KIM & JOHN'S STORY
Kim’s sister lives in Poughkeepsie New York and we had made flight reservations for spending the Christmas Holidays there that year. When 9-11 happened we decided to leave the decision up to our two children Jennifer 15 and James 13 if they still wanted to go. (Read More)
Twenty years ago on 9-11, when the first plane hit the first tower, I called my mom to explain what had happened, especially because she had lived in New York City over the years. As we talked and watched tv while on the phone, the 2nd plane hit the 2nd tower. I have always thought that at least we were ‘together’ on the phone when we witnessed this tragic event.
I was working like any other day. Suddenly (because I’m always on the lookout for news) CNN announces the collision of a plane with one of the twin towers at NY. It caused us sadness for people who had undoubtedly lost their lives. Suddenly when the reporter gave the news (Read More)
September 11, 2001 is a day, as a New Yorker, I will never forget. The question has often been asked “where were you when the towers were hit?” Well, I was driving along a Long Island, NY beach road on a beautiful, sunny day, headed to work at a federal courthouse. The day quickly turned into a day no one will ever forget. (Read More)

MICHAEL B'S STORY
I remember finding out when I arrived at work in San Francisco at The San Francisco Chronicle that day and then spent some time in a conference room alone watching the horror play out over and over on a large video screen. I was shocked and wanted to leave and return to the safety of home but decided I would be needed if there were any system issues so remained until the end of my day. I was concerned that BART could be a target but then made my way home. My heart goes out to those that lost friends or family.
I was in my office at Wyeth Pharmaceuticals in Andover, MA. There was suddenly a commotion in the cubicle area so I went out to see what was going on. People were talking about a plane hitting the world trade center. I went back to my office to call my wife who was at home with my 3 yr old and 6 month old sons to see if she knew what was going on.

I was near Frankfurt in a town called Wetzler. I was to fly back to India the next day 12/11 via Amsterdam to New Delhi. In my hotel room I was seeing TV news of the twin towers collapsing and also about the attack on Pentagon on 9/11 evening German time (Read More)
