seven years ago this morning

I’m a bit embarrassed to admit where I was and what I was doing at the time. But when I did get to my computer and saw a note someone had left on list – all it said was “OMG Turn on your TVs! The WTC is collapsing!” – I thought it was joke. I turned to my husband and said, “This is a joke, right?” So we raced downstairs and switched on the tv. It was almost 9:30 by then. We were both dumbstruck and absolutely horrified. The most I could get out of my mouth at once all that day was, “This is so unreal.”
