Friday’s here and so am I with your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. What a day for a SoCS post, eh? Twenty years ago the world was in shock. As always, my prompt will allow you to choose what to write. But I have a feeling the subject of many posts will be the same. Here’s your prompt for this week:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “where.” Use it any way you’d like!
I was working for an American Bank on this day in 2001. My redundancy was already confirmed to take place towards the end of the month, but this came as a shock to everyone worldwide. Stunned doesn’t begin to cover it.
The Company pulled together, different operation centres taking up the slack despite the time differences, and staff working 16 to 20 hour shifts. The best of our computer support team were sent to the USA and helped get things up and running.

Loved ones were lost, lives shattered, the world as we knew it was never the same.
Broken families remember that day, and every single day that has followed since.
