I remember 5 years ago when I was 23 years old when our family lived in Kardinya the twin tower attacks in New York.
I remember on that Tuesday night driving my mum's car to drop off a DVD our family had rented during the weekend and hearing on the ride back the DJ on the radio talking about what was happening in America.
Initially I thought it was just some sick prank and it wasn't until I arrived back home that I asked my father who was sitting in the lounge room looking at the TV screen,
"Is there something happening in America?"
My father just pointed at the screen with wide-opened eyes prodding me to look.
I don't think I got to sleep until around 3-4 o'clock in the morning that night.
I'll never forget.
