The day the world stood still

September 11, 2011

Even now, watching the footage of 9/11, it’s still hard to comprehend what happened, the loss of life, the devastation and carnage.

For the relatives of those who lost their loved ones on that terrible day, the pain must be unbearable.

I know what it’s like to lose a close relative very suddenly, without warning, and the agony and anger are difficult to cope with even when the death occurred in the most everyday of circumstances.

Ultimately, though, it’s the missing and longing to see the person just one last time to say all the things you didn’t get a chance to say while they were alive that’s the most difficult to bear.

Today my thoughts are with those who lost relatives and friends on 9/11.

    It’s so hard to watch the footage, even now. At the time I remember watching it and feeling sadness and thinking how scary it was but each year, each time I watch documentries, read stories or see clips online, it seems harder, sadder. I guess because I’ve matured a lot since then, I have my own family and can’t imagine the horrific pain the families who lost someone have been through. Rest in peace & God bless x
