16. I worked in HR for a medium sized manufacturing company

In the Chicago area. One of the guys in another office came over and told us about a plane hitting a building and him being kind of a jackass we didn't know whether to believe it or not. Reality soon sunk in. One woman had a teenage daughter that was on a field trip in downtown Chicago that day, she was beside herself, not knowing what was going on and if there would be more cities targeted. Another woman had a cousin that worked in WTC at Cantor Fitzgerald, she was so upset someone drove her home. I remember the internet was absolutely jammed and it was hard to get any news. I did my best to work through the day. Once I got home, I poured a drink, lit 4 candles on our balcony and and sat out there until they burned all the way down.
