On this day
On this day three years ago, I got up in the morning at 7am as I always used to, ready for my class at 9am. It wasn’t a special day and it wasn’t an important day. Just another normal day in my first year at university, which I was gradually getting used to. I had a shower and came out of the bathroom to find I had missed three calls from my mother and had received a message which I still have saved on my phone.
The message simply read, “watch the news right now”.
There was no kiss, no full stop. I was worried. So I opened up my laptop and went to the BBC homepage.
This is the first image that I saw and it will be etched into my mind forever.
