Just a block away
Date Submitted: 4/11/2018
In 2001 i was 25 and i had worked at canton Fitzgerald for only 1 year. I had an apartment just a block away from the towers and i could see them in my view. For some reason that day my alarm didnt go off and what ended up waking me up was the sound of the screams,emergency vehicles and explosions. I saw the towers from a couple minutes after they were hit to after they fell. One day i aas going to work with a buddy. The next the building wasn't even there and my buddy wasnt even found.
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...
