Re: Where were you.........................
9/11-I was working and our district manager came to the cubicle next to mine and had a small radio and we started listening to it. The security guard had the radio and took it to our manager. I felt really bad about the first plane hitting and then when I heard the second plane hit, I grew very frightened since our country was being attacked and that somebody had declared war on us. As events unfolded, a few of us went to a store in the mall where we worked that sold tvs and watched for a few minutes. I knew I had to get back to work though, since I worked for the gov and our agency served the public, so phones were still ringing and people were in the office wanting service.
Challenger-I was home sick that day. I was asleep on the couch with the tv on and woke up to see it on tv. I did not like being alone when such an awful thing happened.
JFK-I do not remember it at all. I was 10 years old at the time and always wondered why I could not remember it. I always figured it was due to too much partying in the 70s. I just got to thinking this summer, that was about the time when I was in an orphanage and we probably were not told. It made me feel better that it was not my mind!
Princess Di-I was at home and my son called and told me. I felt so sorry for her and her boys.
Elvis-I was on annual leave to accompany my husband to an AFB in IL. He was taking a fire course. I was down at the hotel bar getting a pepsi and saw it on a tv. I kept getting sick and vomiting even though I quit eating. I did not know it at the time, but I was pregnant with our first child.
