I will never forget what happened on this day. Phil phoned me and told me to switch on the television. I could not believe what I was seeing. We were due to visit New York City two weeks later. I will never forget the horror of seeing my favourite city attacked. It feels like only yesterday.
We postponed our trip until the following spring and it was wonderful to see the spirit of New York unbroken. Americans always make us Brits feel so welcome. I do feel there is a special bond between us and I hope we can bring the girls to NYC next year.
