100 Words - 20

Headed to NJ, scheduled to be at the WTC that morning at 9 in the morning. Slept through alarm. Turned on TV and saw first tower in flames. Left apartment and heard second plane hit. Saw many fire trucks heading to Manhattan. Total denial. On the subway, saw both towers in flames. Still in denial. Thinking, for sure the fire trucks are arriving and will put out the fire. By-passed downtown and went to the next station. Got to New Jersey. Saw the first tower fall. No longer in denial. Scared, with no way back to my house that night.
