Where were you on 9.11.01?

Where were you on the 11th of September 2001? I was at my Auto Workshop in Lagos going through customers unpaid invoices early in the morning and already very agitated. On my desk was a very inconspicuous 9 inch black and white T.V which served as an occasional distraction.

Suddenly, the news flash came on one of the local stations. It sounded like a scene from a movie even though no one had ever visualized such a script. The reality of the situation eventually dawned on me. That was the most unimaginable moment of my entire life till date.

In days that followed, heart rendering photos of victims in uncompromising situations were published. Imaging viewing helpless people jumping from the burning buildings to their death; or those waving objects through smoked filled windows moments before the buildings collapsed…still cannot comprehend. I posed the question on my facebook page where several respondents have already expressed that moment in history in their own perspective.

Feel free to state your experience on that day in the comment box.
