Claudia,
this was incredibly horrifying, moving, and beautiful to read. Thank you for describing your experience so minutely and personally.
Your images were so exact I was able to picture it in my mind's eye without the physical fear, of course.
I had no idea what exactly happened with you on that day.
Words cannot really convey how it must have been but you were able to convey an aspect of it for me.
Really this was an incredibly unique post- I don't really know what else to say.

We all will remember forever where we were when 9/11 occurred and will never forget the sacrifices made by so many that day. It's comforting to see such beauty and serenity in the waterfalls and reflecting pools at the Memorial site.

What an experience-thanks for sharing! I was at work that morning. We were sent home around 10:30 that morning to "stand by". Before we left, we went up to terminal one departures level and could see the big gray cloud in the distance .

10 years can never heal the pain and loss felt from all on that fateful, awful day - those who made the ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten.

There is a picture in today's WSJ - showing a father on one knee, at the memorial - kissing his fallen son's name etched in stone - completely heartbreaking. It is the image of grief I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Stay well, all.

Thank you for your moving account of the day--it is brave of you to relive the nightmare none of us should ever forget. We had a lot of TV coverage here in the UK, and it was good to see what's been accomplished in the rebuilding. Although I know the families of the victims will never get over it, I hope that this anniversary brings a sense of closure and the country moves forward with confidence.
