I had just sat down to have my lunch and watch the news on Sky tv as it showed the first plane going into the tower, I immediately phoned my mother in law and told her to put the news on. I just couldn't believe what I was seeing as because of the time difference I was watching the second plane going in live. I watched it and watched my mother in law and I connected to one another by the phone.

I kept saying to her those below the fire should be able to get out but when the first tower started to fall I was shocked, how could it fall so soon after the crash and then when the second tower went down it was like a nightmare....those poor people.

I wish I had seen it on a replay and been aware of what happened instead of seeing it like but my distress was nothing compared to the families who had lost someone.

As America confronts these tragic circumstances, it is imperative that the situation is not compounded by expressions of religious or ethnic intolerance. The greatness of our nation rests on the exceptional diversity of religions, nationalities, and ethnic backgrounds which characterize its people.
