We heard a little while ago that the south tower collapsed. We all went outside to look. On the way out we passed one of the developers. He was outside when it happened and was in tears. He couldn't speak.

Outside there was nothing but smoke on the skyline where the WTC used to be. You can't see the buildings, just roiling smoke. People were in the streets staring in shock, some of them were crying.

I just talked to my brother in law over aim, he was outside and saw it. He's in tears now too.

I can't reach the daycare or school, the lines are busy. The tunnels are closed, the trains are shut down, I can't get out of the city right now to get home. My boss offered to drive me home if we can get to his place.

I feel sick.
