9/11 Stories

Jo Winter

Even though, here in Australia we’re thousands of km’s away, we’re just across the water & myself & alot of other people felt that & still do on September 11.

Nothing could prepare me for the emotion I felt & the sickening twist in my gut. All television stations stopped programing & cabled directly from America. Your nightmare was our nightmare.

I work as a bartender & for two weeks after the event restaurant trade was right down. We we’re all grieving in our own way. A lot of unanswered questions, a fear for the future. You came so close to losing your President & we came so close to losing our Prime Minister. Too close.

United we stand. United we will win this fight.

As tomorrow awakens
Today shall sleep
Preserved by time
Treasured by memories


God Bless You
