This day 10 years ago, 19 hijackers boarded 4 planes on the East coast of America. Two of them flew into the World Trade Center towers. One flew into the Pentagon and another crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Almost 3000 people lost their lives.
Ten years on many more have died in the subsequent wars against terror in Afghanistan and Iraq, American, British and foreign alike, soldiers and innocent civilians.
Instead of defeating the American citizens, it has brought them together and made them stronger and on that day brought out the best in people when so much bad had been brought out in others. So for everyone who has been affected by the events that took place, my thoughts are with you on this 10th anniversary. I hope never to witness a horror like this again in my lifetime.
