Readers’ comments: We’re with you, Audre


In response to Audre Myers: September 11, never forgotten

Thank you, Audre, for sharing your memories, painful as they must still be. It is important, as we recall these tragic events, to pay heed to the recollections of our American cousins, the better to understand the lessons which 9/11 should’ve taught our respective governments.

I remember well the shock and horror of that day, watching events unfold from a remote and safe distance, but still feeling genuine fear. If such a thing could happen in America, were any of us truly safe?

Eighteen years on, and it seems that all that has been learnt is how public reaction to terror attacks can be desensitised. Many react with phrases such as ‘not another one’ or ‘we will not allow these events to divide us’; they hold their vigils, light their candles then go about their business.

How sad.
