We're part of history....

"We're part of history. 

Yeh we are."

Yesterday was a day. Just like any day. Completely normal for me. I worked a double shift, as I do most Sunday's, and I thought about today. I planned what I was going to wear today for my day first day of University in England. I thought about my lunch, and the people I would eat it with. I thought about the night before when I had gone out. 

I came home and went through my blogger feed; I read mostly the normal entries from other people on art, design and fashion. Trivial things really. Trivial in comparison to the other posts I read. About yesterday. 

Yesterday was a day, just like any day. But it marked a huge moment in history; something that we are all part of. Just as Juliet from Juliet McKee Photography said;"It was our generations JFK moment"; The moment where everything changes, and nothing will be the same again. The moment when we remember exactly where we were and what we were doing. 

10 years ago yesterday 9/11 happened, and the lives of millions changed. It is now part of our history, or as the kids from the kindergarten in the first tower said, we are now part of history.

This small article from the New York Times, with the kids from P.S 150 kindergarten really touched me. We all remember where we were and what we were doing on that day, but then our lives continued. Quite normally. But for the people involved in that day, everything changed, and they became a part of history.
