I was at work just like any other day and I had to go home for some reason that I dont recall. I was planning on going right back, but turned the TV on for some strange reason. I never watch TV during the work week. I never made it back to work.
My partner and I were in Paris, France. We returned to the apartment we rented in the afternoon and put on the tv. At first we were confused about what was on, wondering if it was just a terrible movie, but after a few minutes we sat glued to the tv, hoping against hope that this wasn't true. I tried calling my parents who live near New York City and my aunt who lives not too far from the World Trade Center. All circuits were busy I think for a full day. A few hours after first learning of the news, we finally left the apartment. On our building, someone had posted a sign in French that said, "We are all Americans." A neighbor stopped us and expressed their sympathy. The French, who had experience with Algerian terrorists, had removed the stone trashcans and replaced them with clear plastic bags (I presume to prevent the trashcans from becoming bombs). At the Louvre, only one entrance was opened and you had to pass by armed police. There was a creepy feeling. Like people at home, we spent the next few days waiting for the other shoe to drop. Thank God it did not.
I was home (North Tampa) watching my 6 month old twin girls. Wife called and said to turn on the TV.
Later my cousin would tell the story of sitting in a room at ground level in the Trade Center when the plane hit. The part that gives me shivers, he's running down a NY street and low-flying jets screech overhead and everyone hits the ground. Someone yells out "their ours".
