I was at home with my 1 yr old. I was 22 and thought the news was airing something from years ago at first. I then paid attention and the 2nd plane hit. I was so shocked. I was so sad instantly and that lasted quite a while. I was in the midwest and didn't know of anyone involved personally.
I watched the news and then wrote my dd a letter of everything I love and hope for her. I cried the whole process of writing it.
I wasn't sure what was going to happen.
