Am lucky to be alive ….

Hi guys –

I am lucky to be alive today. I am currently interviewing for a job at
Morgan Stanley, and was scheduled for my interview, in the World Trade
Center, at 9am.

I arrived downtown off the 2/3 subway line at around 8:15, got some coffee,
and sat outside at the promenade. It was a beautiful, sunny morning, about
70 degress. A few minutes laterm, all of a sudden, you could hear the whine
of jet engines, really loud and really close.

*BOOOOOMMMMM****. The building was hit. I was less than 100 feet from the
building. I ran, along with about 200 other people. I continued running onto
Trinity/Church street, and turned to look back, to see debris and paper
raining down where I had just been sitting.

The police by this time were running around, blowing whistles, and I
proceeded to Broadway, as over the next few minutes they got the situation
under control. No one suspected it was terrorism, yet.

Then, a little after nine, a second plane comes into the picture. *WHAM*,
the explosion is even *LOUDER*. Fireball runs up the side of the building, a
few bodies fall out. People are screaming.

I begin walking up broadway. A little while later, when I am about 10 blocks
away, looking back, the whole damn thing collapses. The dust cloud catches
me up, and I am covered in gray soot. My cell phone is out, so I cant call
my wife.

I finally get a cab about 15 minutes later, and get home. My wife is there,
crying hysterically with my new baby.

Crazy day. Makes you appreciate what you got.

Prayers for those not as lucky as me….

and death to those responsible.

    Jacky, glad to hear your okay. I was wondering whether you were over
    on Wall street a little further ( not much ) from harm’s way.
    I just heard that 7 WTC has just collapsed as well.
