Time to reflect

I don't feel right writing about my lovely weekend today, particularly after watching all the 9/11 commemorations of those who will never enjoy a day with their loved ones again. Very poignant indeed.

Ten years. The pain is still there for those who suffered their losses. I remember where I was when the first tower went down. I was working in Central Bath, looking forward to a bright and happy future with my husband-to-be. So many people that day never got the chance to enjoy any kind of future.

I am thinking of you all and sending much love to you, wherever you are.

Too sad, can't believe it was 10 years ago. I don't think any of us will forget where we were when it happened x
