It wasn't until I'd uploaded my response to this week's Challenge that I realized what memories it was triggering in me, memories that go back 45 years. Believe it or not, one summer back when I was in college in the early '60s I worked for the CIA. Yep, that CIA! And no, I wasn't "undercover" but I WAS instructed not to act like I recognized anyone outside of the Agency headquarters because THEY might be undercover agents. Strange, huh? When I first became a committed peace activist in the early '90s, I had some serious soul-searching to do about that chapter of my life. Not that I'd been part of--or even aware of--any of the CIA's horrendous activities at that time, but still. I HAD been part of the "system," naive though I was.
Who'd have thought a simple TITC would trigger such memories!
