September 11, 2001, is a day that is etched into everyone’s memory. A day no one will forget. I worked in an office building on the 13th floor, the CN Tower was next door. When the news of the disaster at the World Trade Center traveled through the building, we were all in shock, frightened for what was happening and scared that it could happen to us with a tall building so close. No one stood near a window, we gathered in the middle away from all windows and waited for the news as to why this was happening. We followed along with the news until we were told we could go home. No matter who you are or where you were, that moment and the aftermath is indelibly etched in everyone’s mind.
Everyone has a 9/11 story
The 911 movie is based on a true story and chronicles the lives of five average, everyday people who find themselves trapped in an elevator during the events of 9/11 in the World Trade Center.
An awe-inspiring film starring Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg titled 9/11 and is based on the original play, The Elevator. It centers on the events of September 11, 2001.
In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. Inside an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.
Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later … their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.
With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.

Was at home watching it live with my parents
I was on my way to work and upon arriving I was informed of what was happening On Sept 11th.
Yes I was at work, we have a radio going but because I work in the processing room of a butcher shop it is very loud and couldn’t hear to much, and when I was done work driving home it was so eerie and scary, there was no one on the roads and no one outside, I couldn’t wait to get home, I’ll never forget that day!!
I was visiting my parents and , for some reason, my dad turned the tv on (which he never did) just as the announcement was happening. I will, like others, never forget
Yes, I was in my advanced American novels class, in high school.
