I was working in front of a computer-data entry type of work , no cell phones were allowed out during work and we didn't have a TV in the break room. My phone kept buzzing so I had to 'act' like I was going to the restroom. It was my husband telling me to get to a TV quick! His voice sounded like he was shivering and scared me immediately. The upper management had a tv in their break room I peeked in to see the second plane hit the building - I was gripped with fear. A flood of thoughts came in,, more people came in and an announce go was made that no one was to leave. I was in Louisville Ky about 5mins from the airport and it was said that all planes had to land immediately. The next announcement was "Pray". I did just that, dropped to my knees cried and prayed. The days after the attacks the images on TV were unforgettable.
Then it was revealed that Tower 1 was collapsing. I put my hand over my mouth and just stood there. I couldn't move. After the 2nd tower collapsed, I remember foolishly thinking/convincing myself that those in Tower 2 had time to get out...
