Ten years have elapsed since al Quaeda terrorists launched their attack on the USA. Sure, it's still only Saturday in the US, but this is the day on which we will mark the occasion.
During the week we went looking for something to mark this sad anniversary. We found this documentary; it's in four parts, and the link to the next part is easily found with whichever episode one is watching. It's the story of the plot and its execution, but its also a story of heroism, with interviews with survivors, and tributes to those whose heroism saw them going into the World Trade Centre as people were fleeing the building.
9/11 was an event which changed the world, quite literally. We hope and pray that it is never repeated, but the reality is that there will be further terrorist acts.
Today, our thoughts, prayers and aroha are with all who mourn.
