In a deli getting coffee. They had the TV on. I then went outside, looked downtown and saw the North Tower burning. #WhereWereYou— Stuart Ginsberg (@stuartginsberg1) September 11, 2015
I saw it live on the morning news. Ran through my house screaming, then had to face classrooms of teens & try to explain. #WhereWereYou— Charisma Molotov (@CharismaMolotov) September 11, 2015
I remember how blue the sky became when the planes stopped flying. The stillness as the wheels and gears stopped turning. #WhereWereYou— Anthony Rawlings (@arketex) September 11, 2015
