I love watching films at the cinema, on Netflix, Amazon Video and my extensive Blu Ray and DVD collection, not forgetting Sky Cinema and then blogging about them! I also attend the theatre a lot and review all the shows I am lucky enough to see!

On September 11th 2001, so many people innocently went about their normal morning routine before heading to work on what was a very normal day having no idea the tragedy that was about to come. In New York City a plane hit one of the twin towers and the world watched thinking it was a truly terrible accident until a second plane hit the second tower and it was clear that America was under attack.
As a 14 year old I can still remember coming home from school and seeing the news as the plane hit the pentagon and the fourth was “brought down” we later found out about the heroics of those on board United 93. Going to school the following day in an English lesson we talked about it with newspaper reports, all struggling to understand it.
In all honesty even now twenty years later I still cannot understand this truly tragic and horrendous day, which then turned to weeks, months and years of grief for so many people. The brave emergency service workers doing their duty and not really having any idea what exactly was happening.
Over the past few weeks I have found myself watching so many documentaries about this day and the true amazing moments of human courage to help save others, it really has been an emotional journey to see and hear about more stories from this day.
Forever rest in peace to all those people from around the world who were impacted on that day and still now.
