TWELVE YEARS ON . . .

I always say that time flies . . . whether you're having fun or not.

And that's very true when I realised today was September 11th. And that the atrocities suffered during 9/11 in the U.S. happened 12 years ago today. 12 years ago. How is that even possible???

12 years ago, on the morning of September 11th 2001, thousands of people woke up not knowing the horrific fate that was going to befall them, or their families. Or the memories or the guilt they may be left with knowing that they survived where others weren't. 12 years on, people are STILL affected by it.

In fact BILLIONS of us were affected by the events of this day, whether we were in the direct vicinity or not. And I think it stays with us all.

12 years ago.

Yet it feels like only yesterday.

Never forget. . . .

  2. It's hard to believe it has been 12 and a whole generation of people weren't even alive when it happened! xo

  3. I still remember that day really well. It was eery and sad - even here in Australia. I was in my final year of school and we had history class that day. All we wanted to talk about was 9/11 because even at that age, we realised we had witnessed the kind of horrible history that our children will be taught at school one day.
