We Remember.


Seventeen years ago we were at home, I working whilst Youngest was playing and watching a Thomas The Tank Engine cartoon on the TV after lunch, as he was allowed an hour of TV time.  He came to tell me that there was some writing on the TV and I came to check and saw the news flash and turned over to the BBC.  The news was devastating, I distracted Youngest with toys and books away from the TV but I was unable to switch it off and sadly saw the second plane hit. 

DH returned an hour later from visiting customers and we just sat and watched in horror.  I went to collect Eldest from school and it was all that was talked about whilst waiting for our children.   We got home and continued with family routines whilst numb to what we were seeing on the TV.  We were the lucky ones on that day as we were together with our boys safe in our home and our hearts went out to all those who were not and to some who would never be again.

We will never forget and we remember all those who were lost and all who remain and to everyone affected by this day.

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

    We had just come home from our walk with angel Maggie. We heard the news on the radio first and then turned on the TV and couldn’t believe what we were seeing. We will never ever forget.

    I was getting ready for work whilst watching the morning news on TV. It was horrific to see what was happening on the other side of my country. Went to school to find that one of the teachers at my school had a sister at work in one of the towers that day. Lucky for me my 1st-3rd grade students didn’t really grasp what was going on, but the school was devastated for her loss. That day altered the course of my country and so many individual lives…I pray we never forget.
