Today marks 7 years since Islamic terrorists hijacked four commercial passenger jets. Two were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York, one was flown into the Pentagon and the forth crashed in Pennsylvania after the passengers heroicly staged a counter attack. At the time commentators said that the world would never be the same again and whilst on one level such a statement is merely a truism (the world never is the same again) the events of 911 do remain the most defining geopolitical event of this decade. And whilst the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004 would kill 75 times as many people and displace many more lives, the graphic protracted real time images and audio of the many personal events that were projected onto our television sets on the 11th of September 2001 make that day one of the most defining modern moments in terms of human tragedy and suffering. Please reflect on that day and perhaps share your thoughts.
