Just a quick note to let everyone know i am okay. We saw the fire on tv and ran downtown to see it. I was on my cell with my mom telling her what i was looking up at when the first tower collapsed. My friend and I were about 8 blocks away looking up at the towers. As it all came down around us we ran. We were running with all the crowds up the streets of Manhattan to get away. We were crying because I had seen people jump and wave from the towers just before. I thought we were going to die when I saw that building come down. It was the most horrible thing I have ever seen in my life. This is something you could never imagine. People were panicking. It was just like when the aliens blew up the empire state building in Independece Day. I thought it was coming for me. I am sorry I dont know what else to say. I have been interviewed on the phone by CTV and CBC in Newfoundland which was broadcast nationally. I have been interviewed by the Calgary Herald. My mom was interviewed live by a Calgary radio station. I have been asked to go to ABC studios in New York to be interviewed live on VTV news in Vancouver. I have to be there in an hour. I will be on the 5 and 6 pm news tonight. It will be broadcast live nationally in Canada on CTV. I will get back to everyone later. I love you all. I will keep you updated.
