70. I was in class.
I was a senior in college. A girl, who came in late to class, told us that her b/f, who was in NYC, said that a plane hit the WTC. We all thought it was a small plane that had mechanical failure.

Then a short while later, her phone rang again. Boyfriend. Second plane hits. We all knew this wasn't just an accident.

About a half hour later, they closed school for the day. It literally took me two hours to get home and I lived 15 minutes from the school. There was so much traffic. Just everyone trying to get home.

I can only imagine what the chaos was like in NYC.
