Story:I was at work, with my computer on when I recieved a news alert from CNN. I was horrified with the first attack, but like everyone else I thought it was a horrific accident.
Then the next tower was hit. I didn't think it was an accident any longer, but terrorism never entered my mind. I didn't know what to think.
I had an Dr's appt. a couple hours later and had to leave work. When I got to the hospital, everyone was standing around the tv's as the first tower fell. We all wept. Patients, Dr's, Nurses.
I drove home an hour later, with such a sense of erieness, no planes in the sky. It was so quiet, and so scarey.
Our lives will never again be the same. With every tragedy we will think terrorism. Isn't that what they want though.

Response:I dontated blood. My husband volunteered for the Red Cross.
He was one of the first to be on the security team at Ground Zero.

Affects:I still donate blood. I look at things in a very different way.

Red Cross Volunteer:no

Red Cross Employee:no
