I was working on a support guide with my supervisor at my corporate job, in my little cubicle. Stargate Internet. There was a small commotion, someone talking about something happening on the TV. I paid it no mind until they brought a small, over-the-air only TV from the break room and put it on ABC in the conference room.

I thought it was a prank.  I thought it was a movie. It looked like movie effects with all the papers in the air.

Then we all simultaneously fell silent. This was real.

Tears began to roll down my face as I watched the suffering and terror unfold for those in NYC, Washington DC, and Shanksville PA.
