Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No
Knew someone who perished?: No

I had just started high school in London, UK. When I got home from school my mum was sitting in the living room watching the events of 9/11 unfold on the television. She told me anxiously what was going on and we watched for hours and hours. I remember watching in disbelief when the second tower was hit. I remember my mum weeping at the sight of people jumping from the buildings. We cried a lot that afternoon. I didn’t know anyone from New York or anyone directly affected. I wished time could be turned back somehow. I was only 11 when it happened but I can remember it all vividly and I will never forget.
