I was in my first semester at Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Alabama. I had made it a goal to get to the school by 7 every morning to study for a while before classes started, so I was sitting in the study cubicles when I saw a few people running down the hall.
My curiosity was peaked, so I followed the folks to the common area where there was a small TV which generally showed only school announcements and stuff. It was tuned to the news, and it looked like the Twin Towers were on fire.
I, along with several others, stood there and watched as the first tower fell. Ironically, I had to leave the scene to go to theology class.
I’ll never forget it. Where were you?
