Where were you 11 years ago today?
I was in high school in study hall (at least, my school's equivalent) working on homework when we heard the announcement over the PA system. We spent most of the rest of the day watching the news reports on TV.
I remember walking home thinking it was all surreal. I grew up in Michigan, so it never struck as close to home as I'm sure it did for many others out there. In a couple years talking with my college roommate about it, he told me about how he looked out from his school and saw the smoke rising over NYC.
Where were you and what were you doing? What were you thinking?
