As a New Yorker I remember this day so vividly. At the time I was a service tech for a company that routinely serviced equipment at the World Trade Center site. On 9/11 I did not go to my usual NYC territory, I was sent into Queens to have my vehicle inspected. As I watched this nightmare unfold from the foot of the 59th Street Bridge I could not believe what was happening. I thought it was the beginning of WW3.
I was lucky to make it home that night, many people where not.
