So what is something you have experienced in your life that has truly had an emotional effect on you?
I remember my son waking up early in the morning for a bottle. Garth Brooks' song The River was playing on the radio. As I settled into a comfy spot to feed my son, the song ended, and the DJ aanounced that song was in memory of Princess Diana. She had died in a car crash in Paris.
I was shopping in a local shopping center. The stores shared a pre recorded " radio station". It usually played seasonal music/stories and advertisements. I heard what I thought was a cheesy spin off of the "War of the World's" being done on their intercome. I had been in the dollar tree and Kmart and heard it playing in both stores. It was early fall, and I didn't pay that close of attention to what it was actually saying. Just the man on the radios voice made me notice, and assume that was what was playing.
When I got home, I saw the tower come down. It was September 11, 2001.
That is where I was on those 2 occassions.
So I ask, where were you, on a day that time almost seemed to stand still. It can be for anything really. Just an event that touched you deeply, so much so that you can remember it like it happened yesterday.
