From Liz K:
I was world’s apart from the USA, but I can tell you that the horror rocked my heart as hard as a storm if I where the middle of it.
At the time I was at the office in Holland (a great time difference from NYC) when a colleague stormed into the room… she just came out of the directors office who had television and screamed that something really bad was going on and the world was under attack.
My heart skipped a beat and I couldn’t wait to rush home but I had to wait for a couple of hours. During this time I felt a bit nauseous. Knowing something of importance was going on, while not being included on the live coverage.
Finally home, I turned on the tv and sat there all evening in astonishment.
All I’m trying to say is that this was not just an American tragedy, but felt all over the world.
I feel deep sorrow for those who have lost someone and a great respect for getting through, rebuilding life, trust, and peace.
It was a turning point in feeling care free or safe. It hasn’t been the same since, not here and not in society. That is what we share worldwide.
