Where were you?

September 11, 2001

I was a freshman at Ole Miss.  I showed up to my 8:00 English class.  I honestly can't remember if we had class or she cancelled class.  I think we started class and then heard something horrible had happened and she dismissed us.  At this point, I still knew nothing.  I walked to the student union for a chicken bisquit (yum).  I can remember this vividly...the student union was packed and everyone was standing around each tv watching in silence. This is the image etched into my brain...

The rest of the day was spent in front of the tv....just watching in horror.

Today I'm remembering the lives lost and their families.  Also, the heros of 9/11.
