I had fallen asleep with the televsion on the BBC. It was the middle of the night when I woke and saw the 2nd plane hit. The phone rang. A friend in USA, distressed; as we talked I watched in shock, disbelieving. Soon though, I believed. September 11th – the world changed.

Looking over to North Korea from the border. I have been there and down that.

It was another experience that evoked profound sadness in me.

I made changes as a result.
