9/11 victims remembered

On September 11, 2001, four commercial planes hijacked by terrorists crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people. I was in Paris, France, on 9/11. As many I saw live the second plane crashing against the WTC tower, then the videos that were replayed in loop so many times. France had suffered several deadly terrorist attacks in the 1980s and 1990s so the emotion was extremely high: a mix of deep sadness, shared interrogation and anger. We all were Americans.

A year later I moved to the U.S.

Today I want to remember those who perished on 9/11 and send prayers to their loved ones.
