World Trade Center

9-11-2001 Remembered

Twin Towers

When the planes struck the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 I was working in my Manhattan apartment filled with bright sunshine streaming through my windows. The silence was broken by my mother’s phone call. She told me to turn on the news because in her words, “Downtown looks like a Bruce Willis movie.” As I watched my television with horror, I saw the buildings literally crumble as the city went silent.
