It was just a regular work day for me. At the time I was living in Kent, WA and working in Tukwila, WA. I was listening to the news as I was getting ready for work and heard that passenger plane just ran into a building in New York. I was thinking oh my God but went on my regular schedule, I got to work in Tukwila about 650am and everyone was gathered around the tv in our lunchroom looking with pure disbelief on their faces and not saying a word by that time a second building had been hit. I can remember there being a 7-11 convenient store across the street from where I worked and several others in Tukwila that closed up on a minutes notice. Lord the aftermath........Everyone on my job was praying. That was all we could do.

I tried searching all the news sites on the web, but it was impossible to connect to any. I spread the news through the office and we soon connected a television in one of the conference rooms. The site of the towers in flames was horrifying.
