Nine Eleven

A lot of posts on this today, and not surprising as it was one of the most horrific acts of terrorism of our times.
I was working for an International American Bank here in the UK at the time, and remember the office coming to a standstill as each new horror unfolded.
Although I no longer work for the Bank, a lot of my colleagues were involved in keeping things afloat, and it was our Computer Tech guys who went over to The States to get communications up and running in alternative buildings.

Sixteen years on, for many it is like yesterday, their loss absolute both physically and emotionally.
There were a lot of Heroes that day, many not returning to their families.
Thoughts are with you all.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Beautifully said. I don’t think anyone will ever forget where they were, me included.

    Yes absolutely. I saw many posts about it on Facebook, as well. It’s important to remember events like this, even many years into the future.
