I am in a state of shock, limbo, numbness. I can’t seem to wake up from this nightmare. I saw the entire thing happen. I left my apartment at 8:25… got to the corner of Leonard and B’way and heard the noise of a plane that is coming in for a landing. Myself and others looked up and saw a jet flying overhead. We all wondered why it was so low and feared the worst. We feared it had mechanical problems. Seconds later, we heard an explosion. We ran around only to realize the plane crashed into the WTC. I never thought I would live to see something like this. Minutes later, we saw the second plane crash into the second tower. That was when we realize that this is no accident. Myself and others immediately fled. I thought the entire city was under attack at this point. My prayers are for the survivors and for the families who’s love ones are lost or missing.
