Everyone can remember where they were and what they were doing on that infamous Tuesday morning in September 2001.
Some of us were on our way - or already at - work when we heard the news. Others were in school, tucked away in a classroom oblivious to what was happening in New York City.
Few events in history mark a day like that one... the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the deaths of JFK and Martin Luther King, the explosion of the Challenger Shuttle... it seems that every generation has a "I remember where I was when I heard..." moment.
As this one marks its 10th anniversary on Sunday, take the opportunity to share with us and your friends what you were doing that day and how that event has changed us and our nation.
I was already at work at a day care center in Asheville, NC where my 10 month old son was attending. I was a floater that gave breaks or substituted if a teacher wasn't there. My husband was at home waiting to hear about the condition of his employment when he called to tell me that there was a bomb at the pentagon. Suddenly, all the radios were on in the rooms so we could hear what was going on. The whole day was somber while we tried to cope with the idea that we were attacked on home turf.
We will never forget.
