I can hardly believe it was 7 years ago that I was waiting to collect youngest son from school when I heard Steve Wright on the radio saying that a plane had flown into a large building in New York.
Along with many others I thought he meant a small, light aircraft.
And along with many others I sat horrified at the pictures beamed live to our homes, tears streaming down my face.
My thoughts are with everyone affected by this dreadful event. No doubt I will still be sitting crying as I watch the memorial programmes taking place this evening.
I am a peaceful being. Why can't we just all get on? I'm obviously very naive too.
