9.30 am -- This was the view from our living room window in Brooklyn,
looking west to Manhattan, about 20 minutes after the second
strike. It seems hard to believe now, but I didn't realize anything
had happened until I was leaving for work. I walked into the bedroom
to turn off the radio and heard the announcer say something about
an airplane hitting a building. I turned on the TV and saw an image
of the World Trade Center, turned my head and saw the same image
out the window.
