I was actually at a check cashing place, in line. they had a TV on the wall and breaking news came on.
That night we went to a mcdonalds with Tvs everywhere, turned to the news. I could not eat and wept at our table.

At home. Drawing a blank on details. Its not a huge life-changing event and will be forgotten in a year.

I was working our Holiday shop at my sons elementary school, helping Kindergarteners and First graders and one Second grade class shop for gifts for their family members.  Passing out candy canes to all those kids who were so excited for Christmas.  Feeling really warm and fuzzy about all those kids who couldn't wait for Christmas day.

And I came home and it was live on the news.  I don't even have words to describe how that felt, having just come from an Elementary school where everyone was so excited about Christmas.

I went straight back to the Elementary school and worked the Holiday shop all afternoon, even though I had only volunteered for the morning.  I just needed to be there and where my son was.

I was at work and was on the Internet during my AM break. I was so shocked and kept going back on the Internet throughout the day because I couldn't believe what had happened. At the end of the day I got in my car, called my DH and just burst into tears.

It just happened to fall on one of the most important days of my DH's career, and it was a day to celebrate a big accomplishment for him. We were in TX, but I'm from CT originally so I was having a lot of mixed emotions.
