I was on the trading floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and it was a slow morning for the first 30 minutes or so and then all of a sudden my market went crazy. I looked at the News Ticker Board and we all saw the news on the first plane hitting. Then we got the news of the second plane and the market continued to get crazier. By then security started telling us to leave as they had learned of the Pentagon attack and felt we could be a target or the Sears Tower which was a cross the street from us. I remember racing to get out and running to get to the train station and barely getting on a train. The train was packed and peoples' phones were going off like crazy relaying the news about the towers collapsing. I felt helpless and was nervous at the same time. There were so many unknowns and it was unsettling. I hope you are all well and can spend a second today and remember all of those people we have lost on that 11th day of September.
