Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta
We will never forget!
I've been melacholy all day...
I can't believe it's been 8 years!! I remember exactly where I was. What I was doing. I don't think that will ever leave me.
I was on a train from Beijing, China to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Our cabin-mates had a cell phone with satelite service. They were Europeans out on holiday to Mongolia. She came running to me because she knew that I was American. "You know the World Trade Center?" she asked. "Yes." I said. "Well, it's GONE!" she said. She told me the details as her friend told them to her on the phone. I thought she must be getting it wrong. It couldn't be true! When I got to Mongolia I found an internet cafe, checked the news and emailed home. Then I spent all the time I could spare watching CNN at the electronic store.My mother and sister had just flown out of Boston, just before the hijackers did.Dear Lord, that was a rough day.
