Monthly Archives: September 2011



It hardly seems real that it has been 10 years since 9/11. The images of the twin towers falling are as shocking and heart breaking today as they were then. I hadn’t long got back from a wonderful honeymoon before it happened. I remember work coming to a standstill as we all stood watching in the staff room of the laboratory glued to the television. No-one could believe what we were seeing. No-one could have anticipated how it would end.

It seemed at the time like it was replayed all the time and the images were printed constantly in the weeks after. I got given a print from NYC as a gift some years ago now, it has the twin towers on the skyline and in the water below their reflection is missing. That print sums it up perfectly.

They aren’t here anymore but every single one of us remembers that they should be there.
