    Killed in Afghanistan is the word so far, although there's nothing detailed I can see yet. I hope it was at the hands of the US military.

    So I remember what I was doing on 9/11 when the planes hit (I was in DC, near world bank, picking up my car loan check w/ my hubby and daughter....and my mom just drove past the Pentagon when the planes hit...she saw it happen from her rear view mirror)...

    And when I hear about Bin Laden, I was sitting in my kitchen, watching Prince of Persia and chatting on Livingreefs ;)

    We just woke up in a hotel in Boston that morning getting ready to go out sightseeing. We decided on Boston instead of NYC again that year. Were supposed to fly back to Houston on the 12th. We said eff that and drove our rental car home instead.

    Yep...my mom had a 6th sense about this that day. She called me after each plane hit the WTC in ny, telling me to get out of DC cuz they might hit World Bank next. She even said they might even go for the Pentagon, which she was driving past slowly (it was rush hour). Of course, I didn't listen...we parked, and began walking towards World Bank for our check, when we noticed everyone rushing out of the buildings.

    Lesson learned....no matter how crazy you think your mom is, they have this 6th sense! She said when the plane hit the Pentagon, everyone was calm...mainly cuz everyone was going only 5-10 mph due to traffic. Took us 5 hours to get out of DC.

    I wonder what The Queen felt when she heard? She was right there with by our side when the 9/11 attacks happened and the US declared war.
