I was at work in Christchurch England. The receptionist ran in and told me her husband had called to tell her the first plane had hit the trade center. moments later she came in and said the other had been hit. I was sitting at my desk in complete shock. I then learned the Pentagon had been hit as well. It was about 2pm in England. I'll never forget it. I am an american student working abroad. I want to thank the british people for their support.

Driving on I-80, eastbound, through Vallejo, Calif., right as the first report of the plane striking the Trade Centre came across the radio. Then, the next strike... and for the next 14 hours as I drove to Washington, I listened to the radio, as everything unfolded.

I was half asleep when I first heard about it. I didn't know the extent of what was going on. If I had known, I wouldn't have fallen back asleep.

I finally put attention to it when my dad came in and woke me up with, "blah blah blah, twin towers, blah blah, terrorists, blah, pentagon, blah blah, we can't find your sister." I then sat up in my bed, looked at my dad with utter horror, and paid attention.

I had no idea.

As I was on my way to school at 7:20 in the morning I first heard the news. I didn't grasp right away what was happening and thought perhaps it was a joke. Then as I flipped through other stations I began to realize it wasn't. Not very long after I heard them reporting that the second tower had fallen. I could barely hold back the tears as I realized what was going on.

As soon as I got to school I called my mother and told her to turn on the TV and then went to class in utter shock and fear. Though I live on the West coast I was still afraid. Afraid of what might happen next, if more was to come.

I was at my friend Emma's house. We were watching a film, Save The Last Dance, not that it matters I just remember. Her phone rang and I could see Emma's eyes grow wide as she listened. Obviously a result of what the caller was telling her. I began to wonder what was wrong. Emma told me to switch the video off and put the news on. I did, asking her "why?". She said it was her Mum on the phone and that an aeroplane had crashed into the World Trade Centre in New York. And as we watched, the story unfolded. The full horror became clear. Every day since then I have woken up in a different world to the one I woke up in on and before Tuesday 11th September. It still seems like a nightmare. My heart and support is with everyone that has suffered a loss at the hands of the evil people behind this x x x
