RICHMOND, Va. -- I was working at NBC 12 and as we watched the first twin tower in flames and someone said in the newsroom, 'that wasn’t an accident, I think it’s terrorism.'

Then in horror, we watched as the second plane hit the twin tower and everything seemed to go in slow motion.

We were all in shock and stood still watching every minute of coverage on national TV.

Join us this week as we Remember 9/11: 20 Years Later with unique reports and recollections from our award-winning storytellers on social media,, and television.
