I woke up this morning at around six fifteen as I did not want to be at all late to work. One of the first things I did was to press play on the boombox. The cd in the player was one of the "Hampton Comes Alive" box set that I got last year. As it turns out, the first song on the cd was a cover of the beastie boys' "sabotage". How eerie that was later on.
I eventually got to work and around nine-fifteen in the morning saw some people looking at cnn.com's asia site where they had an image of a plane striking one of the towers of the world trade center. I thought surely it must have been an accident.
It was not.
My heart goes out to those who are suffering now, as well as my prayers.
