September 11th

In 1999 me and Emily took our first holiday together. We went to New York. It was just before Christmas and we spent pretty much all the money I’d earned contracting. Here’s some of the pictures we took ..

A couple of years went by and, well.. we all know what happened.

In 2006, as part of our honeymoon, we went back to New York. Flying in from Cancun was a weird experience. No towers. No towers. Gone. Just an empty hole. New York is still as special to us as it always was, however it was horrible to see the damage “for real”.

The terrorist problem isn’t going to go away easily – retaliation and fighting may just make things a whole lot worse. Who knows.. it’s not for me to say. What happened on September 11th 2001 is something we should never forget. It shows just how dangerous hate can be.
