"I was on the 79th floor of the South Tower...The streets packed with people and plenty to see and do. Early September is usually a great time to be in NYC.

On 9/11/2001 I was having a national sales meeting in our offices at the World Trade Center...At 8:30 am people started arriving and getting ready for the days presentations and discussions. My secretary, 9 months pregnant at the time, left me a message that she would not be in. I was on my own making sure that there was food and that all of the AV equipment worked. Thankfully she had taken care of everything on Friday.

At 8:45 am while standing in our boardroom looking at the statue of Liberty in the south harbor, all hell was about to break loose. We heard a pop then a swoosh. A stream of debris crossed the sky. It looked like a ticker tape parade but only a few thousand feet higher.

In an instant, I knew what was happening, in my minds eye an image of a terrorist walking onto my floor with a bomb vest flashed. I could see my lobby vaporized and in flames.

Get the F@#$ Out Now! Down the stairs, this way out I screamed..." - Keith Webster, Malibu, Calif.
