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. 

 

Sooo...its not a movie?

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.
