On 9-11 I was driving home from work when I heard something about a crashed airplane on the radio. As soon as I got home I turned on the TV to find out what had happened. The following days both me and my husband stared with disbelief at the reports from CNN. Unbelievable that something like that had happened.
Almost a year later we came to America for the summer holiday and we planned a couple of days in New York. Ofcourse we visited the former WTC site with our children and that had an strong emotional impact on us. Seeing for yourself is believing more than seeing it on TV.
For all the people affected by this tragedy : we wish you strength and courage.
To all the people who helped in any way : thank you.
