Imagine the feeling of watching the World trade center fall right in front of your eyes. That's what happened to a million or more people on September 11, 2001.

To some, waking up at around eight in the morning was as normal as one could have it. They turn on the television, to find that something has disturbed their daily routine. At first, an unexplained plane accident. How could something like this happen? A plane crashes into the north side of the North Tower of the World Trade Center, between floors 94 and 98.
