Gazing out over the Atlantic breakers towards the Western horizon, our thoughts turn to the city of New York. Can it really be 10 years ago that those blue morning skies were blotted out by flames and dust?
So many innocent lives dashed in an instant - at that moment - and in the decade since.
So we send our love and healing wishes out with the tide, to the people of America; of Iraq; of Afghanistan and London, and all others caught up in the fires that were ignited on that day.
An event which has touched us all. Even here, in this remote and beautiful spot. For we stand on the beach at Mangersta, on the West coast of the island. This is the home of Linda Norgrove, kidnapped while working with Afghan women and children, and who died while being rescued.
Peace and love be with you all. x
