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.
