I was in NYC on the 10th, wandered Central Park on the most beautiful of days. Walked down Lexington to go have a drink on the top floor of the towers. Got to the Chase tower where there's a building with gigantic pilons on the four corners, and no building for the first 10 floors. Have no idea why, but I got spooked and just had to get out of there. Flew home that night and when I looked out the window, the setting sun was reflected off the towers. The next morning, my wife waked me up and the first tower was burning.

The part of the world where those murders came from is the home of Satan, so far as I can tell. Aside from oil, no real reason for it to exist, or people to live there. I am astonished when I fly to see so many people from those hell holes working around the planes.

I remember flying about 2 weeks later and all of the passengers agreeing among themselves that if anyone does anything odd, we'd take action immediately! There was a fella in a turban, from India, who was quiet as a mouse, hoping no one would come get him because they didn't know his ethnicity. If anyone rushed the cabin, they'd have been killed.

It's beyond me how we got talked into allowing all those so-called refugees come here. Political correctness is all about manipulating us all by calling us names because we don't trust people from the Middle East. A quarter of our present population were born since 9/11, and they didn't have the experience of evil coming here as it did.

Many of my NY friends and clients shared about the people they lost. Thank God so many offices there weren't full of people when the planes hit.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

It looked bad enough when the planes hit but then both towers just collapsed.I watched it as it happened on sat.tv & it didn't look real. I will never forget. James jj777746

I watched it happen, that night I was watching an episode of The West Wing and it was interrupted by a new flash so from then on I watched the live news feeds, a very sad day. I knew it was not an accident and that a huge crime had been committed. N

I was off work that day, I was working at Love Field in Dallas, and the next day they had a no-fly order so there were no planes moving on the tarmac. At that time, the best I could describe it was " The silence was deafening", we were so use to the sound of jet engines constantly going and coming that it was hard to overlook the silence.

Even with table saws, bandsaws, planners, sanders and routers running in the shop you could hear the silence, it overpowered everything else.

To this day, that feeling still bothers me. In the next few months we had customers canceling orders for new planes because they were afraid that someone would hijack one of their planes and use it like these planes had been used.

It was in the evening here, and our son came out of his room to tell us a plane had crashed in NYC... We all started watching it on TV.......So hard to believe...
