We have a piece of the Pentagon wall displayed in our observation gallery, as part of a traveling exhibit. I didn't even think to walk up there yesterday. I really didn't give 9-11 much more than a passing thought early in the morning. How quickly we go on with our lives.
I remember the day very well. It was on TV in our detective office in London. I saw the aftermath of hit 1 on BBC News alert. As I watched, the 2nd hit. The whole office crowded around the TV. Not a word was said, we were all in shock. Then we all saw the towers fall. I remember the journey home on the train. Silence, just silence.....trying to fathom out the enormity of it all. I had been there in May with my daughter. We were on the roof of one of the Towers and I remember thinking "It could so easily have been us there"
