I was on my way to work and stopped at the Mini-Mart to get gas, and they were listening to the radio. Drove to work at Mos and turned on the TV. I told a co-worker, This is something that will change our lives.

I was waking up, drinking coffee, turning on the news and trying to fathom how something like that could happen. I remember being angry.

I was on my way to school. It was on the car radio. I didnt understand what was going on till my mom put on the brakes, pulled over and looked like she was having a heart attack, and explained it to me. She was crying.

Sitting in a basement trying to do an intervention on a drug addict. It didnt work, either. The news came on and it distracted everything.
