I was at work. Someone came to the room where i was and said the news had reported a plane crashed into the World Trade Center and that it might be terrorism. I was like 'yeah..right'. But a little bit later i went to the break room where there was a small TV and actually watched the second plane hit. We were all crying. I had to go back to work but kept going to the break room when i could so i watched the towers collapse too.
I was at work (Hospital Security) and one of my co-workers came to me and told me "I have to go, a plane crashed into one of the WTC building and my mother cannot get in touch with my father". I looked at him strangely and I told him go. Several minutes later my boss called me to his office and pointed towards the tv and told me look a plane just hit one of the towers. While in his office as we were looking I saw the second plane hit and I remember the look on the faces of the Director of HR, a VP and my boss. That night I got out of work at 2am and we were back in the hospital at 6:30sm because our administrator wanted extra security personnel on site. We worked 16hrs shifts for the next 5 weeks until the smoke things began to settle.

crying...my dad was in New York City, it was his birthday, he had to take a truck load of supplies up to New York City. When my mom saw what had happened, she called my father...no answer... So she tried again...still no answer...we were both balling til about 7 PM when we finally got a call...It was my father saying he was okay, he couldn't get any service because the reception was down from all te smoke and debris throuughout the city, he said he loved us and not to worry. When he got home he told us about how he heard a crash and he got out of his truck to see a fire and smoke coming from one of the towers, as he watched in horror. He wittnessed the second plane go straight into the other tower. The rest of the story is in the comments.
I was in elementary school, I remember our principal turning on the TV in our classroom. We just stood there shocked. Then one of my friends started crying uncontrollably because her dad was In New York. Turns out his flight was cancelled and he came to the school a happy moment in tragedy.
