Introduction

The day the World Trade Centre fell It was as if the world had stopped, I happened to be going into work, in the South Tower of the WTC, and I was running late, I realise now that, if I had arrived at work before the towers were hit, I would not be able to tell my story.

All the shops had closed, and all the banks, in short, everything had closed as a sign of respect for those who had died.
