Today, Women Watch Afrika remembers and honors the Fallen of 9/11. This tragic incident occurred just three days after WWA’s return from the World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance which took place in Durban, South Africa from August 31 through September 8, 2001. Though the United States pulled out of the Conference, and the parallel NGO Forum ended with some discord, we returned from WCAR refreshed and full of new hope and optimism of like-minded goals for the future. Then September 11 happened. And EVERYTHING was turned upside down. We all remember where we were on that day and how we felt. So today, like on that day, we mourn the lives of the innocents, the 2,977 victims of terrorism, the fallen heroes (first responders) and remember and honor them. We never forget.
