For me 9/11 was the most scariest thing I had ever witnessed I was on break from work and everybody was told to go home, because it was an attack on the world at least that's what they were telling us, I got home and turned on the news and it was all over the news I saw people screaming and running for their lives, I saw the trade center go down and then seconds later it seemed I saw an airplane hit another building I saw firefighters digging up bodies, I saw so many people running to help others I remember seeing families screaming for their loved ones that was a scary scene as if it was something in a movie I could not believe my eyes I started calling family members to see if they were ok and if any of my family was on them planes I was praying for everyone I was in shock at what I was seeing

9/11 is flashbulb memory for me it was an event that will be remembered it is a long lasting memory, it was vivid, precise and an event that has been told over and over.
