“I was in video tech class on the second floor of the library that morning, my sophomore year. We were "studying", mostly goofing off, talking about the announcements we had to make that morning. Then the librarian came running over to us, told our teacher we needed to get to the tv. We saw the first building on fire and had no idea what was going on. The reporter in the foreground was trying to make sense of what was going on and behind her we saw the second plane go in. We watched the collapse. We watched people jump from those buildings. I was stunned. I had seen it and yet had no idea what I saw. I stood there with my classmates open mouthed and in shock, not sure even if it was real or a dream. Then to hear about the other planes, the ones that didn't make it. I made the announcement that morning with another from my class. Telling the school what had happened, what I had seen, not even sure if I could believe it myself. That is a day I will never forget,” Gretchen Nichols, 25, of Victoria, Bartender at Mustang.
