  1. I live in the Dallas Fort Worth area and something woke me up that morning, but I was not sure what it was. I turned on the news (not something I normally do on a Saturday), then took my dog outside. When I came back in, I heard the reports on the TV. I remember that just as clearly as I remember where I was when I heard about the Challenger explosion.
