At the Station
Date Submitted: 9/11/2016
We were checking the trucks when I walked inside as my Lieutenant was watching the coverage of the first tower. We were talking about what happened and how could they have not seen the building. We looked up and saw the second tower being struck. At that moment we knew we were under some sort of attack. We went outside and helped the other guys pull the trucks in. We walked inside and watched in shocked silence as both towers collapsed.
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...
