10 years ago today was a Tuesday. My roommate’s alarm went off like usual on Tuesday mornings way before I had to wake up and she always set it to go off LOUD! and then she would sleep through it. I got annoyed and started grumbling at her to shut off her dumb alarm and then put on my shoes and stumbled my way to the bathroom (community bathrooms in the dorm). As I was walking back to my bedroom to go back to bed I remember hearing Tom Brokaw’s voice very loud booming down the hallway and knew that wasn’t a good sign. I took off walking down the hallway to figure out where it was coming from and what was wrong. I walked into a girl named Jessie’s room and turned around and sat on her bed as I was asking her what was happening and just then I witnessed via the tv the second tower being hit. I seriously thought it was a bad joke so I asked her what was happening as I sat there in a daze watching the TV. 10 years later and I still remember where I was and how I felt about the news. Where were you? Do you still remember?
