Blog challenge # 17

Suzanne's challenge this week:
Where were you when something incredibly important happened on a worldy level? (i.e. the assassination of Kennedy, the destruction of the World Trade Centers, The Challenger explosion, etc.) Write about it.

I remember being at work the day the towers were attacked and we were in total shock. The first thing I wanted to do was call my kids. Not that I thought they were harm, I just needed to hear their voices. Once I heard their voices, it brought tears to my eyes. I can't even begin to explain all the emotions and thoughts going through my head but I still remember all the brave people who came forward and for awhile we were a United States again.

I remember the day well. We watched TV all day, night, week. It took me awhile to wrap my head around what had really happened. Stunning... :-(

I love your last line! It's too bad that it takes something like that to bring us together. And it's even sadder that it didn't last. Great writing Colleen!
