I was at work in my office in Paris when I got a special flash through on my computer. I immediatly got onto internet and saw the first pictures of the first plane. Then I tried to get onto CNN internet site but it was impossible. I the saw the other pictures of the second plane. I couldn't beleive it. I RANG MY MOTHER UP AND SHE WAS WATCHING IT LIVE ON TV. Telling me that two other planes where missing. Then she told me about the building crashing down. It was just like a never ending nightmare evry 30 minutes another horrible thing happened. The only thing that I can remember is that I just felt is wasn't really happeneing. It was just too much in a few hours. Then when I saw the pictures on tv at night I was horrified and I felt so sorry for the people on the plane, es^pecially when, I saw the list of the passengers, there was a 4 year old child. My son is 4, and I can only imagine the horror that he must have lived, seeing the stewardess been killed and the panic aboard. I am totally devasted, and there isn't one night where I go to bed and that I don't have those terrrible pictures in my head. Every night I think of those poor innocent people and I wonder why I have brought my boys into such horrific life!!

Around the early hours of the morning my home phone and mobile phone rang a few times. I ignored them, not giving it a second thought. I woke up to NPR news this morning, as I do every morning, listening to a newscaster talking about the World Trade Center being destroyed. I thought they were recounting the original bombing of the World Trade Center. As I became more conscious I realized that's not what they were talking about. Soon the picture started developing as I started getting ready for work. I went to my phones and had messages from family and friends informing me about what was going on. I didn't have time to look at the television before I left my apartment for a doctor's appointment. I stood around debating whether or not I was going to go to work after my appointment. Living in a major metropolitan area and working just south of Los Angeles International Airport, I decided to stay home. God forbid something happen at LAX, I wouldn't be able to get home. I decided to stay home, and was glued to the TV and the Internet and phone all day and evening.
