Our Heroes.

I think yesterday for 9/11 was a trying day for many people. I know I am one of millions of people who cannot believe it was 10 years ago. It's extraordinary how time flies and it's so sad to think that that's years of memories that were never made for the thousands of people who died that day.

I know the terrorist attacks largely affected America but from those thousands of people who died, Great Britain lost 67 Britons. That's 67 people too many and yesterday I had the privilege from my sofa to watch a memorial service dedicated to them.

I cried, it was so beautiful.

In Grosvenor Square in London the families of those affected opened up a garden. A garden of remembrance to the 67 people the UK have lost forever. Who were so cruelly and pointlessly taken away from us. 

 It's incredibly beautiful that people have their own special corner to remember them. Simply because most of the names on that plaque below don't have a grave. This is the only place where their family and friends will seek solace and peace from now on. 

If there is one thing I have learnt over these last 10 years since the atrocities happened. Is that revenge will never have it's desired outcome. It will never create the peace of mind the terrorists wanted. They wanted to divide us, they wanted to kill people to prove something when all they did was out of the ashes bring people closer together. We cannot change the past but we can heal the future. 

The victims were the heroes we miss terribly, and the thousands of people who tried to save them were the un-sung heroes whom we will thank forever. We will never forget them.

What a great post! I never realized that so many Brits were lost that horrible day. It was not only an attack on America, it really was an attack on the world. Thanks for sharing!

I could not have put it better myself. I think it's easy to forget the terrorists attacked the whole world that horrid day, not just my country. Lovely post girl!

I remember 9/11 as my 14th birthday. Even though I'm in New Zealand, and I little bit more removed than I would be if I'd been in the US, it's still shocking. 10 years later, at 24, I still don't think I really understand it.
