I nearly had a bout of PTS (post traumatic stress) this evening. i was along the lake with my class (my professor wanted to make a point) and we were walking to a covered venue because it was starting to rain and my phone rang.
It was a friend telling me about the explosion in NYC. I used to work near there, I would take the train to my parent's house at Grand Central. I was in the city during 9/11 and so when I first heard what happened I froze.
My annoying bother his finance are OK. I located some friends and left messages for others.
So far CNN is reporting one death and a few serious injuries. It is astonishing how one event can alter life...
