Where Were You?

I've had that question asked alot lately. 

I was sitting in a call center.  Just started my new job a few months earlier - very nervous, scared.  I was going through my divorce and was unsure if I was strong enough or could even support myself.

Behind me, two coworkers started shouting.  I didn't believe them at first.  Put my phone on Standby.  Heard the news.  Heard the crying.  My troubles seemed so small in comparison.

Ten years later, both myself and my country are tougher.  Stronger.  Prouder. Older. Wary. Resilient. Wiser. Saddened about this anniversary.

Where were you?
