Unforgettable - Writers Island

The most unforgettable thing I can think of during my life time was the destruction of the World Trade Towers in New York, on September 11th, 2001. The picture of the plane going into the second tower and watching the collapse of both towers on the television. The horrendous action of but a few people on a group of innocent civilians is so mind-boggling that I cannot to this day, more than six years later, fathom the reasons or the final consequences for it.

The images, that were presented by television, will be burned into the minds of generations to come, even more so than the atrocities of the World Wars or anything that came before. Justification for the actions leading up to the destruction and in the aftermath, doesn’t seem to explain why it was so necessary to bring down a pinnacle of man’s existence.

The worst thing about the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York is that it seems to have accomplished nothing for the perpetrators. If it was executed as planned, what could they possible hope to accomplish? Who could possibly benefit from the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon and the White House, if it was also a target? They were ludicrous actions, put in place by a very stupid person and implemented by deranged actors.

Well said Wynn. I remember being glued to the TV as well clearly. Indeed a stupid horrible act.

A terrible event that is indelibly etched in the memories of this generation and others to come.

In the UK we are no strangers to terrorism having suffered at the hands of the IRA for 30 years.

Indeed I was at the centre of a massive explosion whilst working on an exhibition stand in London's Earls Court in 1980. Collegues I was sharing a joke with one minute, were taken from me the next. I have lived to tell the tale. Thousands of other innocent people across our country have not. And what was acheived? Nothing.
