We will remember them.
Mum cannot believe it is 9 years ago that the awful events of 9-11 happened. In some ways it feels like it only happened yesterday and in some ways it feels like it happened a life time ago.
Mum can remember the day it happened vividly. She was at home with Pre-Teen Bean who was then only 3 years old. Her mum phoned her from work and told her people were saying that a plane had hit the World Trade Centre. Mum told her mum not to be so silly, but turned the news on anyway, just in time to see the second plane hit. It was then everyone here realised that it was not an accident.
At that time Mum lived under the major flight route to Heathrow Airport and only a few minutes from Windsor and Windsor Castle. All planes were grounded and fighter jets scrambled to protect Windsor Castle. Mum will never forget the eerie silence that followed.
Today our thoughts and prayers are will all the innocent people who lost their lives and their friends and families who continue to live their own personal hell.
