ENQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW - WEEK 36



No, I am not a new Tabloid Reporter, but this is a feature so 
that we can all get to know each other better.  

This feature will be open from Thursday at 12:01 A.M. and close on Monday at 11:59 P.M. to allow those that want to participate over the weekend the opportunity to do so when they have more time.  So you may want to check back on Tuesday or check the previous week's link on Thursday to view everyone's answers.

Links to all previous can be found by clicking the Enquiring Minds Want To Know page in the right sidebar for those who missed a week or two and want to catch up on everyone's answers.  To do that please link up using the actual post link  instead of the link to your entire blog so people can find your "Enquiring" posts easier. 

If you are just joining this feature 
WELCOME!!!!! 
We all become friends/followers but most of us will never meet in person, this feature is to help us all get to know each other better.

Each Thursday I will post 3 questions for you to answer 
that you can copy and post on 
your blog with your answers. 
You don’t have to be a blogger to participate either. I will be using a Linky List for the blogs to use to participate and follow each other around to get to know each other, but if you are not a blogger just answer the questions in the comment section following the post on your favorite blog. Please feel free to click on the links and visit other blogs too.  

This way we not only get to know other bloggers, 
we get to know our followers too.
I am really excited about this meme 
and hope many more people will join the fun!!!!!

Are you interested?

WEEK 36 QUESTIONS

1. Where were you or what were you doing when you learned of the death of Osama bin Laden?

2. Where were you or what were you doing when you learned of the tragedies of 9/11?

Now be sure to copy and paste the information and your answers into your blog, then come back to link up, so we can come to your blog and read your answers.

I hope you will come back to this meme every week and tell your friends so we can all get to know each other better and get the answers to all the questions 
Enquiring Minds Want To Know.

MY ANSWERS:
1. Where were you or what were you doing when you learned of the death of Osama bin Laden?
I was watching The Celebrity Apprentice and thought it was pretty ironic that the president broke in on Donald Trump's show.



2. Where were you or what were you doing when you learned of the tragedies of 9/11?
I had come home from the hospital from my accident in June 2001 and was still receiving home therapy, my physical therapist rushed through the front door, saying "turn on the tv, turn on the tv!" We spent the morning crying and watching and  didn't get much therapy done at all.


3. Do you feel safer today than you did before Sunday evening?
Not really, in some ways I am more afraid now that there will be some sort of retaliation and while he was the head honcho he had many followers and offshoots that still want to harm America and Americans.  I think we still need to be very concerned about our safety.

Now it's your turn! 
Let's get to know YOU!!

1. Where were you or what were you doing when you learned of the death of Osama bin Laden?
I was at home watching tv. Thought it was weird the president was going to be on so late and then the news leaked early.


2. Where were you or what were you doing when you learned of the tragedies of 9/11?
I was at the grocery store & ran home to watch tv.

3. Do you feel safer today than you did before Sunday evening?
I really do not feel safer. I feel that anytime they can strike.

Sorry, I didn't get to link up today! =(

I, too, was watching Celebrity Apprentice when the news flashed and like you, I thought what a coincidence Obama was interrupting Trump's show.

9/11, I was home as usual and had slept in a bit. I was totally unaware of what was happening until I spoke to my husband by phone. I told him I couldn't get on the net. That's when he said, turn on the TV. I was numb from my brain down after that totally glued in front of the TV.

There are always concern about one's safety, but I'm not going to be afraid. I'm going about everyday as usual. Terrorist want to cause fear and I'm not going to allow it. I know God will be with me amidst whatever trouble arise.

Thanks for hosting this week. I'll try to play next week!

Hi Lori-
I didn't think much about retaliation. Attention to security is still important. Thanks for hosting.
