Paraphrasing Teresa Veliz

"I was convinced that there were bombs planted all over the place.
Everywhere there were going off explosions
as if someone was sitting at a control panel base
and pushing detonator buttons.
There was another explosion,
and then another one.
I didn't know which way to run."
 - Teresa Veliz, working on the 47th floor of the North Tower on 09/11.

    the horror is incomprehensible.

    It must have been quite scary at the towers that day. Chaos and mayhem and noise and death. Hope it never happens again.
