I live in Fairfax county, Virginia, 30 miles away from Pentagon. I went home at 11 am. I called my friend in New Jersey. She lives in New Jersey and worked in World Trading Center North Tower. Fortunately, she changed her job one month ago and she is now working in a building far from the twin towers. She told me it took her 5 hours to get back to her apartment in New Jersey.
In any case, the life is invaluable. This is the only t hing in my mind.
