While to those on the West Coast who are accustomed to the earth quaking, yesterday's East Coast earthquake was negligible, to those of us who have never felt the sensation before, it was a pretty monumental day. I was in a staff meeting at work and we began to feel a rumble under our feet, then the rumble seemed to travel up the walls and to the roof, we then ran outside to find other people on the street standing outside also. This will be one of those "Where were you when...?" events I'll remember.
Some others I'll remember:
Where was I when Aaliyah died? Tomorrow, August 25th is the 10th anniversary of her death. I was on a train on the way from Colorado to Connecticut, and my uncle told me the news as her heard it over the radio. It was definitely sad to hear.
Where was I on 9/11? I was in World Civ class in highschool, and at the beginning of the period our teacher came in and said he saw on the TV in the teacher's lounge that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. At this point it was thought to be an accident. After the period was over, there was an announcement that school was closing and buses were awaiting pick-up outside. I then went home to watch hours upon hours of the footage from all the attacks. It was such a scary and sad day. It felt like the world stopped.
Where were you during key moments in history?
