I'm not American. I don't live in America. But I remember watching everything unfold.

For me it must have been mid-afternoon. I was working in the video department of the youth project I did volunteer work at. One of our monitors for video editing was a standard TV and someone came upstairs with the news that the first tower had been hit. We tuned the TV in to BBC 1 which had switched to showing only the news. I remember clearly watching with disbelief that a single plane had even hit the tower and was watching the news as the second plane hit.

As I said. I'm not American. I don't live in America. But I remember that day with sadness.

I was at home with 3 young boys. I got a call from my husband's grandfather asking if he was OK and if I had heard from him. At the time my husband worked in a government building in D.C. and frequently had meetings  at the Pentagon. He had a meeting scheduled there that day. I was more focused on that than the twin towers, eps after report of another plane headed to DC. It took awhile to get a hold of my husband. I was on the phone a lot that morning. Usually on hold. (My husband was fine, but got home very late, he had to walk out of town -through barricades to a friend's apartment)

We watched it unfold on the Internet. I had a friend who worked in the towers and we were not able to contact her. It was three days later when we learned that she was ok. She had missed the subway and was walking to work late when the first plane hit. She was 1 block away.
