    Hard to believe it's been so long and still feels very fresh and is very shocking every time you see the footage.

    I think this is the first year I didn't remember it until I saw some posts on facebook.....RIP for those involved.
    It really saddens me that the conflicts with radical Islam is even worse today than back then.

    I remember the day well. I was in a pub in Perth that had a comedian performing. He cracked a joke about planes flying into towers which non of us understood. Back at the hostel everyone was in the TV room just sat silent. Took a while to find out what had happened but then I remember saying out loud "That's gonna change the world".

    RIP

    The really sad thing is that getting the west involved in protracted conflicts is exactly what these terrorists want. For whatever it’s worth, OBL actually succeeded in creating an over-reaction which resulted in two wars that still go on. And similarly, ISIL wants to draw on our emotions and tempt us into a fight.

    Only problem is that terrorism can most probably not be defeated with conventional weapons…

    Not only the day of mourning for NY, but also for Salvador Alliende.

    Wow, that choked me up Paul. Thank you.
    A woman won The Nobel Peace Prize? Must have been a pretty good sandwich.

    Can't be much worse than losing a child. But how sadly proud must they be...

    I did think about it especially since we flew from Phuket to Korea yesterday, on the way to the states.


    I remember sitting in my home in LV watching it live and it just seemed surreal. At the time it was feared that as many as 50000 would be killed. The only good news is that luckily, the number was much less, due in part to the courageous first responders that sacrificed their own lives to help save many
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.
