Where were you on September 11th 2001?

Where were you when a plane crashed into one of the World Trade Center towers…….
Just hitting the sack to get some sleep, after pulling an all night shift

Where were you when a second plane crashed into the second World Trade Center tower…..
Sleeping soundly in my bed

Where were you when the Pentagon was attacked……
Still sleeping

Where were you when the first tower collapsed………
Still sleeping

Where were you when the second tower collapsed………..
Still sleeping

Where were you when the news of more possible attacks were crossing the airwaves…..
Still sleeping

Where were you when word started coming through of friends and family found, friends and family okay, friends and family lost……..
Just waking up and didn’t even know what had happened

Where were you when the world became silent and dark and the skyline remained smoke filled…. while charred and crushed bodies of family and loved ones remain buried in their cement graves…….
At home thinking why had the towers been stuck again, they’d already gone once before (was reliving the dream of them going down, that I dreamt of some 8 years ealer – and have the diary entry to prove it, talk about deja vu).

Where were you when the world was sleeping in their comfy beds, safe and warm……….
Right there with them sleeping, safe and warm

Where were you when the world changed…………
At home alone with my dying dog, and trying to figure how in the world where my folks going to be getting back into the country the next day with what just happened (took them a week to get back and only because mom was declared a medical emergency and had to get back for treatment).
