I Thought It Was A Joke

I was taking the kids to school early that Tuesday- I remember thinking as I dropped off my youngest at the elementary school what a beautiful day it was. I turned on the radio searching for some nice tunes of which there were not any on. The news was on each station that I turned to and I kept thinking to myself I wonder if this is another War of the Worlds radio broadcast. I could not get my mind around the fact that they were really reporting what what happening. I got to work and when I saw my co workers then I knew it was real. The rest of the day was spend trying to do my job and come to grips with what happened. The biggest thing that shook me was the fact that life had fundamentally changed and things would never be the same. There was and still is today a sense of loss.
