As everyone knows September 11 was the 11th anniversary of the attacks of the World Trade Center in New York City. Many people think back to that horrible day and think back to what they were doing on that day. I was at work and heard the news bulletin on the radio. Shortly after a big screen TV was set up in the hospital cafeteria so that everyone could silently watch the tragedy unfold.
Yesterday there were many memorials held all over the US. I am subscribed to the US Embassy Page on Facebook and I receive updates frequently from the embassy. Yesterday I received posts on how the anniversary was remembered in the US and other parts of the world. Today I received an update, which was a rather poignant observation of 9/11 and it's aftermath. It contained a post from a 15 year old American girl's blog on her memories of 9/11 and what she has learned since being an exchange student in Malaysia. I think it is an extraordinary article and should be read by everyone, regardless of, if you are American or any other nationality.
Please take the time to read Musings from Malaysia.
