It is a miracle that your brother was not at work that day. That was a blessing. Wow. As for where I was when I heard about what happened on 9/11, I was in my Spanish Class in school. I had gotten to class early and the teacher had the television on. I could not believe it. I was stunned all that day and fearful.

I was at home getting my oldest daughter ready to go to school, my next daughter was just getting around because she was in Kindergarten and didn't have to go until afternoon, and my next daughter was only two, so she was probably toddling around. I was nine days away from the due date of my fourth daughter, and when I saw what was happening, I just kept thinking that this was a terrible time to be bringing a new life into the world. It was a very scary time. My youngest daughter was born two weeks later, and everything was still strange and sad and confusing. . . I can't believe it has been nine years, and things will never be the same.

On 9/11 I was at work on the 91st floor of 2 World Trade Center. I'm a survivor of 9/11. I had to run down from the 91st floor to the lobby to save myself. In fact I was on the 86th floor when the second plane flew into my building. How I'm alive to speak about is all due to my guardian angel. Thankfully my guardian angel was with me that day and whispered in my year that I had to get out of the building. She spoke to me and said "Janet you have to get out of the building" repeating it 3 times in my year. After that I truly believe in God, miracles, and angels.

I was in Europe so I only saw on TV what was happening. I really don't know anyone that worked there but it was still a shocking sight.

Well, I'm in Europe and I remember I was in train, getting back at home after an exam at the university, when I heard the first news from other passengers. Only after getting home I could find out everything.
