20th Anniversary of 9/11
Little did I know that when I took this picture from the North Tower of the World Trade Center, I would be remembering it for all the wrong reasons. It was one of those ‘I remember where I was’ moments when those horrific scenes unfolded on that fateful day twenty years ago. Today is a time to remember, not just those who lost their lives, but also those who have suffered in other ways too; the injured, their loved ones, the rescuers and even those who had to take up the fight against the people who were responsible.
Armed conflict between two opposing armies is one thing, killing innocent people indiscriminately is quite another.
Remembering and not forgetting is not necessarily the same thing as far as I’m concerned. Today I’m remembering those that were affected, but tomorrow I will not be forgetting that now the Taliban are back in control of Afghanistan that we need to brace ourselves for possible further attacks like those that took place on 11th September 2001. Let’s all do our bit to make sure that the last twenty years wasn’t all in vain.
