They day when I, being so young, knew not what to think of the situation before me.
The day when thousands lost their lives
The day others risked theirs for so many others
The day we came together as one
Very beautiful work.
Although I am from Finland, 9/11 had a bigger impact on my life than it had on most of the Finnish people. I used to livr in Baltimore back then, and there between the attacks people thought a war had started.
I didn't suffer any personal loss there or experience anything frightening - I was 4yo - but in retrospect it has upset me when I properly realized what had happened so close to us. The thoughts of a girl across the seas might not mean a lot to Americans whose lives were changed forever, but I felt like saying something since nobody around my home town really can relate to my confused feelings.
All my sympathies to everyone who lost their loved one(s). I hope their own lives have still managed to continue. <3
