When I heard about what was going on, it was about eight hours after the tragedy began. What was particularly unnerving for me personally was that I was in Ealing, the site of an IRA bomb explosion about four weeks previously, at the time. I felt sure that if New York and Washington had been targeted that morning, a similar attack on London wasn't too far away. The day before, I had just moved to a region of London quite close to where the London WTC was being built.

I was at my friend Emma's house. We were watching a film, Save The Last Dance, not that it matters I just remember. Her phone rang and I could see Emma's eyes grow wide as she listened. Obviously a result of what the caller was telling her. I began to wonder what was wrong. Emma told me to switch the video off and put the news on. I did, asking her "why?". She said it was her Mum on the phone and that an aeroplane had crashed into the World Trade Centre in New York. And as we watched, the story unfolded. The full horror became clear. Every day since then I have woken up in a different world to the one I woke up in on and before Tuesday 11th September. It still seems like a nightmare. My heart and support is with everyone that has suffered a loss at the hands of the evil people behind this x x x

I was at work in Christchurch England. The receptionist ran in and told me her husband had called to tell her the first plane had hit the trade center. moments later she came in and said the other had been hit. I was sitting at my desk in complete shock. I then learned the Pentagon had been hit as well. It was about 2pm in England. I'll never forget it. I am an american student working abroad. I want to thank the british people for their support.
