Never forget 9/11
The New York Skyline circa 1996 (taken by my father).
Never forget the innocent people that died for no reason, and how the world became a more scary place, and sadly even more divided. I have been to ground zero twice in my life, and both times were sad and moving moments. Looking at the signboard containing the list of names of innocent people died, and listening to the heroic stories was a moving experience.
Sep 11 happened 11 years ago now, and I truly hope that nothing like it ever happens again.
Remembering the day the world changed
Remembering innocent people who died 10 years ago today and the day the world became a less safe place.
I was on an aeroplane at the time (the last flight into Cape Town before South African airports were closed), and I landed having had no idea what had just happened. When I turned my phone on, I had about 10 voicemails from family checking that I was ok. Thankfully nothing happened on our shores, but not so in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
It still shocks me that there are people that will willingly cause so many innocent people to die, for no other reason than to spread fear and terror.
Please spare a thought for our friends in USA commerating the day the world changed.
