I was in French class when it all started, a day like any other day. I was a junior in high school went and continued to physics as normal. Everyone was asking to watch TV, but I thought why "It's class time, we have to learn." By the time I got to band class it was after 9 am EST. I looked at the TV a second and thought a movie was playing. Went to my normal seat and started to watch. I remebr asking the person next to me what movie we were watching. He said it was the news. I didn't believe it. The second tower was just hit and it was all a dream it seemed. I had family that worked there, but after a week I learned no one in my family was hurt. It was the most stressful week I can remember. We were released from school a few minutes later. I will never forget that day.

I stood there feeling bad about whoever was in the plane or helicopter, but not feeling anything ominous... THEN... I see it... It was almost like slow motion but it was moving so fast... So low... You didnít have time to gasp... It hit the second tower and disappeared, and suddenly the biggest fireball I have ever seen in my life just shoots wide and high into an ocean blue sky... Whoever wasnít stunned on the train suddenly screamed as everyone ran to the windows...
