I had just got back from primary school (Britain is several hours ahead of NY so the news reached us in the early afternoon) and my mother took a phone call from my grandmother. She was very shocked and concerned, and when the call had ended she told me that there had been a terrorist attack and some aeroplanes had crashed into the Twin Towers in New York. I was six and didn't know where New York was or what the Twin Towers were, but over the next few days I began to realise the significance of what had happened. Having grown up in a world where that has happened and which is still dealing with the aftermath the memory of that day is a sobering reminder of why freedom shouldn't be taken for granted.

As I began to take a sip from my glass of water, I counted my blessings. Never take anything in this life for granted, not even something as simple and as pure as the water you drink. You never know when you won't have that luxury ever again.
