I remember the call from my sister who had seen the first plane hit on TV at work.
I remember calling the people closest to me to tell them to turn on the TV sets.
I remember the disbelief. The horror.
My aunt and uncle were visiting from SA and my Mum and I sat there with them, watching. Watching. Watching. No-one talked much. Maybe we asked is this really happening? Is it real? We never moved.
How can it be 10 years ago already? And did you hear that young boy, reading out names today, who read his father's name, and then added, "I never knew you. I was in my mother's belly when you died, but thank you for giving me life"?????????
The world changed that day 10 years ago. For everyone.
My prayer today is for peace. For an end to hatred and bigotry.
