911

11th Sept 2001: Just like other days, 11th September 2001, was quite cold. I woke up at 7:00 AM; opened the window. The sun was already up, crows were fighting, birds were chirping, grandparents were ready to leave for a morning walk.
I was getting late for my work. I decided to take a bath, eat my breakfast, and leave as soon as possible. At 8:00 AM I left for World Trade Center.
Everything worked quite well. I dressed up on time, and left for World Trade Center. The streets were already up with traffic, buzzed up with the sound of horns, workmen leaving home, bus stops crammed with people. That was the real America. Everyone was busy in their daily routine.

Sounds of ambulance, police and fire brigade are heard making me think if they can get high alert a bit earlier.
Everyone was terrified, and nervous; waiting for themselves to be killed by the group of terrorists.

Some from the lower part of the building evacuated from the place whereas other waiting for the help to arrive. Thank God, I was among them.
Coming out of the building; I can see nervousness and insecurity on everyone’s face.
The loss can be seen on the faces of small children. When a media worker asked one of them about the incident, he started crying and said, ‘This incident has separated many...
