On the day that 9/11 occurred, I cannot for the life of me remember what woke me up. It should have been the alarm, but I remember walking out into the living room; nobody was awake yet but the tv was on and the volume was turned up high.

And there it was, nothing but white and blue and grey on the screen. I was so young I could scarcely understand the magnitude of what was occurring. Maybe it had just been a television program, maybe high tech graphics... but then why did the focus seem so unclear? Why was the camera shaking...

The End
