I remember like it was yesterday. It had snowed the night before, schools were closed.

Kids were really mean the next day. So many jokes regarding the incident.

I was at work and heard it on the radio. It was unbelievable.

Live as though it were your last day on earth. Some day you will be right.

Was in class, back when I had some. They rolled a TV in and we watched quietly in sadness.

I was at my mom's refurbishing her kitchen after a small fire. Took a break to watch the launch, didn't get a whole lot done after that...

I was at AU in the library checking out some chick, oops I mean books.
They had the accident on TVs all over campus and everyone was in a surreal mode.
