I was 28 years old and in nursing school
; I was also working night shifts as a CNA at a local hospital. I had worked the night before
and was actually in bed asleep, when my husband busted into the bedroom and announced "Two planes just flew into the World Trade Center. The World Trade Center is NO MORE." He had been at school and had just come home, which is why he was just then waking me up. I think he went to school and they decided not to have classes.
I stayed awake pretty much the rest of the day, I may have slept just a little. I remember being really, really scared. I did not have children yet. I'm glad, in a way. I was supposed to go to class that night and wondered if we would have class or not. We actually did, but
I think we spent the whole class talking about what had happened.
