12/9 or 9/11

It was the 12th of September (12/9) in New Zealand, September 11(9/11) in the USA.

Whatever the date, it is one of a handful in living memory that most people will know and recall where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news of the terror attacks in the USA. .

I woke to hear my farmer saying “It’s falling.”

I thought he meant the share market until I opened my eyes and watched in horror as the planes flew into the towers, wondering if it was real.

It was and it changed the world.
