Is it really 9 Years??

It has come round again…..

Another reminder of the horrors that occured in New York on this day 9 years ago.

The bloggers are starting to remember, the words are starting to flow and the memories come to the front again.

I will always remember where I was and what I was doing on that day.

I know I shouldnt get a little upset when my kids dont really understand the significance of this day, but I feel it is our responsibility to share what happened that day and why the world is how it is today. Thats why this time last year, I sat down with my son and watched the footage and talked about what happened and why we are now at war.

As I have been reading others blogs, I almost could kick myself for not making my ‘blog watch’ feature which I have just submitted for this months Journal of Paramedic Practice more of a memorial feature for those rescuers who lost their lives. Then I realise that it isnt just about this day. Yes,  it is a focus day for memorial events and for those who wish to remember; however, 9/11 lives on in all of our hearts no matter what day of the year it is.

To this day, I still find the loss of life of so many firefightesr, police officers, EMTs/Paramedics and port authority staff uncomprehendable. And the feeling of loss I hold gets more noticeable every anniversary.

I know why this is….

Its because I now feel so connected to so many of my friends across the Atlantic, that I feel that I am part of that family now ; and always will be.

To all those who gave the final sacrifice to help others, they will never be forgotten and they will always be in my heart.
