Ten Years Ago

I was teaching at a comprehensive High School that day and the news was filtering in.  
Things were still a little wonky in terms of our understanding.  
We all knew something horrible had happened, though.

After the principal made an announcement over the PA 
telling students they could go home if they wanted to (or something like that) 
a Freshman girl sitting in her desk in the front row 
looked up at me and asked, 
"Mr. Elkin, is this the Rapture?"

To this day, I wonder if the answer to her question was "Yes."
