    Default Where were you.....?

    I was in Public Speaking II at UW-Whitewater university.
    I remember my teaching receiving a phone call and dropping the phone.
    The school closed down instantly.

    I'm thankful for my family and my respects and prayers go out to all of those who lost so much on this day.

    Driving south on the GW Parkway on my way to Reagan National Airport to catch a flight. Needless to say, I never boarded that flight. I could see the Pentagon while sitting in traffic.

    I was in a staff meeting where we were told that our jobs were going to be eliminated. I heard about the attacks when the meeting ended.

    Eighteen months later, I still had the same job and they added another staff. That's the State of Michigan Department of Human Services for ya.

    I was across the river with my friend and his wife who wanted to get early morning photos of the NY skyline. We watched FLT 175 fly into the South Tower. Nothing else to say.

    At work. The TV in the lobby was on and we all gathered around in horror and not a word was spoken for what seemed like an eternity. Nobody wanted to believe what was happening...

    At work. Saw the TV and couldn't believe what I was seeing. Everyone was incredibly sad, scared and shaking their heads in disbelief. Nothing got done that day.

    I would have made Bush's "Shock and Awe" look like 2 kids with firecrackers.
