In Memory Of The 9/11 Victims

In memory of what used to be..

When I saw this photo my heart sank a little.

I am Nigerian, but you don’t have to be an American to feel the great loss they felt on that tragic day.

Terrible.

I was ten years old when it happened, and it felt like I was watching a movie when they were showing the event live on the CNN. Although I couldn’t hear most of what the newscaster was saying, the footage said it all. As I watched the footage bemusedly, all that came to my little adolescent mind at the time, was that terrible pilots were flying the planes. Little did I know…

I hate to open up fresh wounds on this blog, and thus I refuse to go into details. I just want to dedicate this post to the 9/11 victims. I pray they are all in a better place. Events like this remind me that time is fleeting, and the next moment is uncertain…

*sigh* May their souls rest in perfect peace.
