For Amanda Enayati, the experience of 9/11 couldn't have been more shocking. A columnist and blogger now living in the Bay Area, she lived in Lower Manhattan on 9/11, blocks from the World Trade Center. She heard the first plane hit the north tower. She saw the second plane hit the south tower. And for her and her family, it was time to flee or fight.
