We were living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at the time. It was almost the end of my work day, and Mrs Briss called me with the news. We had been planning on attending a back to school night at our children's school that night; the school event was cancelled. We had been receiving warnings from the embassy all summer long that a big terrorist attack was expected. We were surprised that the attacks were inside the US.
