where were you?
for those of a "certain" age, today's date will forever be defined as an american tragedy. i was in 9th grade; we lived in norwich, connecticut; nothing on television for 4 days except dirge music, haunting black and white news reports and still photos. the day it happened, my friend linda and i were walking home from school thru downtown, looking at store windows and thinking of christmas. a TV was on in an appliance store, and we just stood outside watching, transfixed, realizing the unbelievable, an ordinary day forever changed, much like 9/11, wondering how such a thing could happen. how innocent we were in light of daily events now. life has changed in so many ways, and in so many not for the better. or was it just the naivete of youth? some of both no doubt.....where were YOU that day?
