I had an appointment that day on Chambers Street. I was walking down the street when I heard the plane crash through Tower One. The explosion was so loud that it shook everyone on the street. We all thought it was an accident. I went into the government builiding where my appointment was and someone started screaming, "Evacuate, evacuate!" I ran outside and heard another plane had crashed into Tower Two. I knew it had to be terrorists and I just started running. Many people were running with me, crying, in a state of shock, and we saw others- mostly young college age kids- running towards the buildings with cameras. All I could think was that I wanted to get home to my children. I hope those kids had enough sense and luck to get away before it was too late.
