Around the world, countries joined in too - Spain, Italy, France, Brazil and in In Berlin, subway trains, trams and buses stopped for two minutes. In Turkey, Indonesia, and Ireland (as well as others) people also fell silent and in America, the three locations struck on September 11, 2001 -- New York, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania -- also joined together to observe the silence.
I watched the footage later in the day and it was amazing to see. It was touching and beautiful to see that the world is capable of joining together in peace. It is something that I don't believe I will ever forget.
