Lay aside your views on The Hows, The Whys, The Blame, The Cause, The Effect and above all the social media clutter.
Remember 2,977 died. 25,000 were injured. Then there were the losses of pregnancies, the subsequent deaths and severe anguish of relatives and friends, the abuse heaped on the innocent. The resonances remain raw.
People were and still are suffering.
One stark reminder for us all, one bitter symbol of an avoidable world-wide blight.
