Actually, my sister "saw" 9/11 about a week beforehand, but had no idea what it was. She wrote this in an e-mail to me:
About a week before the WTC attack happened, I was relaxing, and kind of daydreaming and I knew a plane crash had taken place and there was a fire. I saw bodies raining out of a tall office building (kind of a yellow brick building), which then dissolved.
Now, I was greatly disturbed by this "errant thought" and was kind of down on myself for allowing it to happen. I remember telling myself that if I was going to let my mind wander and imagine any sort of scene that I should be imagining something more pleasant. I thought the whole thought kind of ridiculous because I knew that planes didn't crash into buildings--a pilot would do anything he could to avoid hitting a building. And then I thought that if I was going to imagine a thought or a scene, that I could control it and I should change it to something more positive. So when I visualized it again, I imagined that the people were sliding down ropes instead of free falling. As much as I tried to reassure myself, the thought that I had felt terrible and it stuck with me for a couple of days.
Even while it was happening on 9/11, it took me awhile, maybe that evening, to realize that I had "seen" it before or what I had seen matched up with what happened.
I don't remember having had a psychic vision before. There have been many times that I've known something before it happened, but never anything like this. I wish I could have done something about 9/11, but I keep thinking that it must have been meant to happen and it couldn't be stopped.
She's disturbed by this. I don't think anyone has control over such visions, but if someone has the "gift," don't knock it.

I don't discount the real, but very rare, gift of prophecy or foreknowledge.
I was knocking the frauds.
Your sister shouldn't be down on herself for not concluding that her "vision" was a fortelling of an imminent attack on the WTC. No other reasonable person would be. If this wasn't a coincidence, perhaps this was a sign to her for some future purpose.
