Ten years ago I woke up. My then boyfriend (now husband) had come over to my apartment when he should have been at work. I am not much of a news person. It is usually depressing and very often not relevant to my life. Knowing that horrible things happen daily is not something I need to spend an hour watching on TV. But this was different.
At first I thought I was watching a movie or a hoax of some kind. Slowly the realization came that it was real. I saw the towers come down and knew the world had changed. I knew we were at war.
