Medford, Oregon: Me and the mother of my 3 month old daughter slept in until 10 am. We showered, got ready and left to the mall to go shopping and browsing. The streets were empty! The mall was closed & confused we went next door to Target. Inside was quiet and I remember saying, 'something weird is going on.' So, we left and I figured it was just me. My girlfriends' sister called up and thats when we heard. Was very shocked and was glued to tv until late night. Then the plastic american(made in China) flags started dominating everywhere!! Businesses, cars, houses, etc.
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...
