Reading this gave me goosebumps. Thank you for sharing. I woke up in a backpackers hostel in Boston. There was a large man watching TV, crying. I thought he was watching a film and thought nothing of it.

We ventured outside. The streets were eerie. There were blood donation signs up all over the place. Everyone seemed to be crying. Then I got hold of a newspaper. Confusion. Chaos. Destruction. Death. Tragedy. Devastation.

I can't even begin to imagine how alone you must have felt and how panicked to be away from your husband! Thanks for writing such a personal piece :-)
