September 11 - 6 year on

(Note: Only during lunch time i realise i type wrongly, supposed to be 6 years on)

What was i doing on this day 6 years ago? I was getting ready to go to bed (around 9 something). My dad called home and told me to switch on the tv, CNN...US under attack. So i did and not long after my dad reached home and we watched the first tower burning.

About 20 minutes or half and hour in to it, second tower got hit. My dad and I watched the whole thing unfold live. As we all know, the rest was history.

Please spare a moment to think of those who passed on, the heros who risked their lives to save people and some of them even lost it.

To the families of the victim, i am sure every year around this time, its hard for them. Please pray for them that in time, their hearts will heal.

Lest we forget

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

I was in Germany, at my part time job, when that happened. In a few minutes after the news broke, the military base where we belonged to, tightened security (I believe all U.S. bases all over the world did that). It was a tense few weeks. I will never forget that feeling being in a community where personnel were getting ready for "action".

My prayers are with all those families (from all over the world) who lost their loved ones.
