What were you doing?

Ten years ago, I was strolling along with my hubby downtown in Chania, Greece.  I was pregnant with our first child, we had a special night ahead with a sunset cruise (that was canceled because of high winds) and dinner for two.  We stopped in some shops and then sat down at a cafe for a milkshake.  That was when we noticed the TV, the sound was off and the subtitles were in Greek, but we could see the pictures and the headlines....

and we knew....

something was wrong back home.

We went on with our evening and when we got home I turned on the TV....and I was glued to it for the next week.

Our lives along with our country were changed forever.

We will never forget.
