Countdown + 9-11
On a more somber note, today is 9-11. Do you remember where you were and what you were doing today 13 years ago? I do. I worked as an assistant general manager at a pizza restaurant and was about to walk out the door to go to work. I was walking through the living room and my at-the-time boyfriend's brother's girlfriend was sitting on the floor about 2 feet from the TV. I stopped to see what was so interesting and was frozen by what I saw. I felt so detached and it felt so unreal. Could something like that really be happening in America?!?!?! I am a military veteran and am currently a first responder, so this is an emotional day for me. Don't forget to thank and police officer, a firefighter, an EMT, or any one currently or formerly in the military if you run across them today.
