    Heartbreaking... My cousin Domenic was working in his office when the first plane hit. He heard the explosion and hurried out of the office. When he was running he turned back and saw plane 2 hit. He says he saw the faces of people on the plane. He lost everything a(it was his own business) and to this day he cannot go back to New York City. So many stories like that....
