Thread Name: BS: Where were you when.......
Subject: RE: BS: Where were you when.......
9/11 I was in a car with my dad - coming home from school going 'up' onto a speed bump. We were just chatting then he suddenly went 'ooh - some planes flew into the twin towers!' and we turned on the radio and the news when we got home.
Then I stopped watching for a while cos I couldn't watch it continuously - i went into the other room and could hear it. Then I remember standing there and hearing the voice 'the second tower has started to collapse' and I ran back into the other room and just couldn't take my eyes off it.
And also couldn't stop thinking of how (freakishly) on the 11th of August that year I'd been standing at the top of the towers and oh god it could have been me if it was just a month earlier!
And then telephoned my New York relatives who, thankfully, had been about to leave the house for work when they heard the explosion and decided to stay at home in Grenwich Village.
