I live in Canada and Vancouver BC on that fateful morning. I awoke at 5:40AM PT that Tuesday morning. I had happen to leave the bedroom TV on overnight and woke up to witnessed the most amazing 4 hours of television I had ever seen. I called my girlfriend near 8AM to give her the news. She is a radio personality and had to report all day the tragic events. She was on air by 10AM. She cried for two days.

It makes me sad to believe that the real reason for the attacks have never been fully exposed. I cried so hard when I watched the horror unfold on live TV. Real people. Dead. Suffering. It took me a number of days to get my head around it all. To this day I still do not believe that anyone knows exactly who is responsible for the horrific acts.

My heart goes out to all of you who were directly effected with the loss of a loved one. They did not deserve that fate.

God bless everyone.

Those who die innocent deaths never really die. They are everywhere; we just don't see them in quite the same way. And the culmination of what they were and what their death meant is as prevalent and tangible as the warmth in your soul and the sorrow in your heart.
