I was washing windows at a Greenwood mall, in Greenwood Indiana. When all of a sudden, the mall was deathly quite. I mean no one was talking. I looked around and it was empty. I sat my equipment down and started walking to find out what was going on. I found a deli had a t.v. set up and tons of people around it, just looking in awe. I asked whats going on? One man turns to me and said we are being attacked. As I looked at the TV I saw the WTC building burning. I just stood there just like everyone else. I just could not wrap my brain around it. At the time I was living just a few short miles from the mall. I decided to go home and watch it from there, when I got home and put it on the TV the second plane hit. I was so dumb struck. I just sat there thinking how horrible that was.
I had friends that has family there, I tried to call my friends but the line was busy. The recording said please try your call again. Which I thought was weird, since the attack was not in my state. But I guess everyone was trying to call someone they knew.
It took me almost a week to get a hold of my friend and she told me that she lost a dear friend on that horrific day. We cried together.
