NYC Stories


I am from Antwerp, Belgium. It was a few minutes before 3 pm. I was sitting home, in front of my tv, when my husband shouted from the back room “put on cnn”. I hear on the radio,something terrible is going on in N.Y. So I switch over to cnn. I saw a burning tower and just right behind a plane coming from the right on the screen, than turned to his left ( to the second tower) and I thought “Oh my god, what is he doing” “He is going to hit the tower, and I just kept shouting and repeating ” what is he doing”,  and I witnessed what happened a few seconds later, which was the hit to the second tower. At this moment I did’nt know that the first tower had been hit by a plane. I sat there in complete prostration and just cried bitterly. This is a dramatic moment I will never forget it will stay in my memory for ever. A few hours later I started ICQing with many of my american chatmates, just to know how they were and trying to express my sorrow.
