Where Were You?

Today I have the distinct honor of guest posting for Alissa at Have Stroller, Will Travel for her series, “Where Were You on 9/11”?

I remember being so young and naive at the time that I wasn’t even sure what the Twin Towers were when someone told me the news.

I was a first year teacher.  A long-term substitute, actually.

I was fresh out of college.

The world was supposed to be open and great with endless possibilities.

But that Tuesday changed things for America.

Come read my small story of being a 22 year old in Michigan–so far from the tragedy, yet touched so deeply.
