I was watching with my mother the television when the 2nd plane hit. We were on the phone watching in shock.

I was a new mother with a 3 ½ month old asleep in the next room. I sat & watched, holding my young daughter & crying. Later that day, I wrote her a letter explaining how I felt, what I saw and what I was doing. I also saved all the information I could get for her. She is now 10 and I’ve told her than when the time comes for her to study this in class, I will share it all with her.
