15 Years On

It's the fifteenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks today.

There's going to be a lot of people talking about where they were when the dreadful events unfolded, and I'm sure I have written about it before. I was here at home as I had a day off from work. I had Talk Sport radio on, heard about the first plane crashing then went downstairs to watch the televised news coverage.

In the years that have followed, I have to say that there have been a lot of interesting documentaries that have covered nearly everything that happened on that day. I've probably watched more programmes about this topic than any other.

Of all of these programmes, one of the stories that I like, if that word can be applied here, is that of the people who went out of their way to assist others to get out at the expense of their own lives. I'm obviously on about all the emergency services who were affected that day. However, if you watch a lot of these programmes, you'll notice there were regular people who were inside saving as many people as they could.
