THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME SHE SAYS SHE HAD TO START OVER.
10 YEARS AGO---SHE WAS LIVING IN NEW YORK CITY--WORKING ON WALL STREET.
BUT EVERYTHING CHANGED ON SEPTEMBER 11TH.
Charlise Noble-Jones, WTC Survivor: (5:32) Another guy over my left shoulder said that plane is about to hit the building and that was all the warning we had.
NOBLE-JONES SAYS DEBRIS FLEW EVERYWHERE---AND PEOPLE RAN IN ALL DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS---
Charlise Noble-Jones, WTC Survivor: (5:03) you could hear the bodies as they landed on top of buildings and it was just minutes, it felt like forever but it was just minutes.
BUT HER THOUGHTS WERE NOT ABOUT LIVING.
Charlise Noble-Jones, WTC Survivor: (5:19) I was not running to survive. I thought I was running to find a place for my mom to find my body.
INSTEAD SHE SURVIVED---
Charlise Noble-Jones, WTC Survivor: (5:03) Once you think you are about to die, you say your good-byes and you walk away from your life and when you don't die, now it's like, okay now what. And you have to learn to live again..
NOBLE-JONES SAYS THE PERSON SHE WAS BEFORE 9-11 IS LONG GONE---
SHE CAME BACK TO GEORGIA-- AND BECAME A WIFE.
HER HUSBAND DIED FROM A TERMINAL ILLNESS FOUR YEARS AGO---
NOW HER FOCUS IS ON MOTHERHOOD AND TEACHING.
Charlise Noble-Jones, WTC Survivor: (1:25) Back then it was glitzy to say I manage 60 billion dollars a day, who wouldn't want to say that, now I can say I teach 100 students a day.
AND PART OF HER NEW LIFE HAS BEEN FITNESS---IN OCTOBER SHE WON A CONTEST WITH SNAP FITNESS TO OPEN HER OWN GYM.
Charlise Noble-Jones, WTC Survivor: (3:57) I decided that I was fit to live and that's the whole journey with the snap fitness for me
AND THAT'S SOMETHING SHE WANTS TO SHARE WITH OTHERS
Charlise Noble-Jones, WTC Survivor: (4:22) Living a best life being more happy and being more healthy and everybody needs to make that decision that they are more fit to do that.
