Annotation: The author of this 9/11 account, Jonathon Segal, was standing next to the WTC when the planes hit. He describes seeing burning wreckage hitting the ground and picking up a charred Manhattan-Chase bank statement. The site has a map charting the author's location at the time of the attacks, and links to a page produced a year after the attacks that offers a reflective essay.
Excerpt: It has been a little more than 48 hours since the attacks began on the World Trade Center and I%uFFD5m finally able to sit down and attempt to write out what I experienced that morning in the city. My hands continue to shake and have been on and off for the past two days. I%uFFD5m experiencing a wide range of rolling emotions which seem to change from hour to hour. I walk around my house and without warning will suddenly break down in tears and shakes.
