On 9/11 I was in the barn listening to the news on the radio. At first, I thought it must have been a small plane that had gone off course. Before 9/11, I can remember flying over the city on the commuter flights, so low that you could practically look into the high rise buildings.
By the time I went to get coffee, it was obvious that this was a terrorists attack. Watching it unfold was terrifying. And yes, I knew someone who died and two people who should have been in their offices at the World Trade Center that day, who weren’t.
This illustration by Charlie Mackesy captures the emotions of the day for me. Never forget.
