Ten years ago...
On Facebook and on blogs, and in coffee shops, and just about everywhere people are, folks are telling where they were on 9/11/01.
Me - I was cleaning up the breakfast dishes. I turned on the little TV in the kitchen and Charlie Gibson on GOOD MORNING AMERICA was telling us about the horrible accident at the World Trade Center. Almost as soon as I heard him say that, he said that another plane flew into one of the towers. So it was no accident... and our world changed.
We were having a studio built over our garage at that time, so we had the workers come in our breakfast nook to watch the news reports that morning.
It's amazing how close we felt to each other.
Later that day I was in an elevator with strangers. Typically nobody talks to each other on an elevator. Well, pretty soon someone said, "Can you all believe what happened?"... and we all began talking to each other.
Where were you?
