A 911 Tribute from Scotland
NEWS AND INFO
As we continue to build our online platform, we thought it appropriate not to share any other posts today as well as this weekend, so that we can pay tribute and remember, thinking of the 911 family members this day.
I remember so clearly that 20 years ago, I was on holiday and screwing a skirting board onto our hallway wall when Sharon called, asking me to switch on the TV. The first thought was, is this real? Is it real footage? Is this footage of a plane accident? As we watched on, the second plane hit. It was at that moment, we all knew that this was no accident.
The next part was trying to take in what was happening to the people in the air and on the ground and in that time, we watched as the towers fell. In the beginning, it was clear that dozens if not hundreds were lost, now, it was clear that this was moving into thousands. On top of this, the thoughts turned toward the thousands of family members whose lives would change forever.
We are thinking of our brothers and sisters in the States this week whose lives had changed that day. I hope you feel some comfort at this time, that even in our little corner of Scotland 20 years ago, there were whole communities of people sharing in that feeling grief, sadness and anger, thinking of our family from across the water. God bless you guys at this time, we won’t forget.
