What They're Saying

"I was there dressed just lying on my bed for a couple minutes before going to another meeting and suddenly I felt the room moving left to right ... mirrors were falling and I felt as though my room on the 31st floor was almost going down to road level and back up. I heard screams throughout this which lasted for about five minutes. I was dazed... I was stunned literally. Then it just subsided. I didn't move... I just laid on the bed."
