An ordinary life....

By Damnonii


I can still remember so clearly the phone call to my office from a colleague telling me to make my way to the nearest television.

Ten minutes later, a small group of us stood in silent disbelief and increasing horror as the images beamed live from New York played out in front of us. At one point I remember having to supress a giggle/sob that threatened to bubble up from deep within me. A giggle/sob fueled by disbelief, nerves and actual nausea. The horror of it all was just too much to take in.

Ten years on and it still affects me the same way. I don't know anyone who lost their life that day and yet this is how it affects me. I can't even begin to imagine how it must affect those who did lose loved ones.

So a few moments remembering those who died on this day 10 years ago, and the loved ones they left behind. I wish you peace.

If this is Goodbye
