9/11 14 years on

Today is the day after that awful day in 2001 
Do you remember where you were on that fateful day in 2001?
I was waiting for my new wife to return home from school outside our cottage, having seen the carnage on TV.
Lynne, just before she left school was told by a colleague of what had happened.

I then called dear friends in New York to see if they were OK, to be told that their mother’s funeral had taken place that day, and that their elder son, instead of going to work (he worked near the twin towers) had been at the funeral.
The world’s greatest recent disaster had at least a happy outcome for him.

So what have we learned since?
I’ve always had believed that the end justifies the means, but this disaster showed me that it doesn’t. It’s too big a price to pay.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
