I remember this day as if it were yesterday, we were all sat in class when our teacher wheeled in the television and switched to the news- watching the live feed of this atrocity and the silence in the room as everyone watched in horror will haunt me forever. Obviously my experience was in no way comparable to those who were actually there, and that's what I respect the most. The courage of the firefighters, the police and civilians turned something despicable into a real show of hope. What those people did on that day really is a testament to the people of New York and further afield who came up to help. RIP to all of those who perished, and sincere condolences to their friends and family.

My dads firm was in WTC

Honestly for me 12 years ago is starting to be a distant time for me, but I remember that day as it was yesterday.

I was getting ready for school and stepped out of our building and looked up into the sky and thinking what a beautiful day. The sky was blue as blue as can be. I walked to the corner on E11th and University place and crowds of people standing all looking down south at one of the towers in smoke. I heard people saying it was a small aircraft that hit the building. I started thinking i better go downtown and then i saw another plane hit the 2nd tower and then i knew it was no accident. My world changed forever at that moment.

I was frantic and thinking about my dad and the rest if the office. I had been at the office many times and there where times the alarm sounded off because of a drill and my dad always con't working like there was no alarm. This was my concern.

I tried calling the office with my cell and all i got was the machine. I tried again and no signal on my phone. I ran to the subway but trains not running. I called using a pay phone & the phone was ringing then it went dead. Finally i saw the tower collapse and i started bugging fearing the worst. I have not heard from anyone at the office including my dad until 6 later that afternoon. I was fortunate and thankful.

My heart and prayers goes out to those families that lost their loved ones that day and the lives lost afterwards paying the ultimate sacrifice for our country. #never forget

Except that most of the financial district as we know it is land reclamation.

I was headed to the Philadelphia Airport to fly to Cincinnati. Flight cancelled of course so I started driving. As the magnitude of what was happening started sinking in I turned around and drove back home. I experienced the entire event on the radio.

Never forget!

...So I think it would be much better if they put the "Tribute in Light" in the pits of the memorial pools... what do y'all think?
