We were having problems with the public Website first thing that morning, and I called one of the senior IT staff at our Virginia operations center.

She told me that she didn't think anyone would be worrying about the Website: "A plane just crashed into the World Trade Center."

Our agency's New York office was located in the World Trade Center complex. Part of one of the towers fell onto it. Several days later, we found out that all our New York colleagues had all escaped unharmed.

I'm glad your colleagues were okay.

I was getting around late because I was very pregnant and had a midwife appointment. I went to get the mail and they had the radio on; the first plane had hit. The second had hit by the time I came back to my house and had turned the TV on.

And then Peter Jennings said, "Oh, God, they've hit the Pentagon." Honestly, I don't remember if I was watching when the towers fell. I do remember asking my kid what I'd gotten her into. I still wonder about that.

My sister was on bed rest with her twins, who were born October 3. She thought much the same thing: Into what kind of world am I bringing my children?
