Remembering 9/11

It was 10 years ago, but it still echoes and the pain is still evident among many survivors as well as families who lost loved ones during that fateful Sept 11.

Fortunately, I don't have a loved one or nor do I ever know anyone who suffered from that day, but I remember it well. I was pregnant with my first child, yes, she turns ten this November, so I know that the 9/11 tragedy was 10 years ago.  I was lying in bed. I was on my 7th month, my tummy was already big and I was watching TV. When my series was cut off by "breaking news", then I saw this very tall building puffing out a lot of smoke, then the announcer said that an airplane crashed through it.  Then a little while later, I saw another plane hit the other building and I was thinking, my goodness! what is happening.  I was dumb struck,  my eyes transfixed on the TV thinking what is the world coming to.  I live far off from the states so I really have no idea how bad it was to be there on that spot so to speak, but I felt it, felt the loss, the helplessness. the question also plagued my mind, "why", if they can do it to the US of A, then they can easily do it to us....My mind wanders at the possibilities... 

Eniweiz, after 10 years, what remains of the twin towers are just memories, memories of the men and women who died there for no reason except to feed the thoughts of a crazed lunatic who's sole purpose is to destroy and hurt.  I just hope that the lessons imparted by Sept 11, remain to be deeply rooted in us, in what we do and realize that it shouldn't happen again.  Not for money, not for fortune, not for a misguided calling, not for anything...
