Today is one of those days, one of those days that I just feel sad... my friend Sara said it best in her post today: "Today is one of those days when everyone over a certain age knows where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news. Like Pearl Harbor a generation before us, September 11 becomes a date marker against which we measure time. I awoke this morning thinking about where I was 11 years ago today; where I was going, who I was with, what my life was like then."
It's strange how 11 years have passed and yet it seems like it was yesterday, how something so tragic and traumatic stays with you, when you may no have even been close to New York on September 11th, 2001. That day is a wound that America has been trying to heal for years past and will for years to come. I know that I will reflect on this day, every year, for the rest of my life... and that is not a bad thing. My thoughts and prayers are forever and ever with those families affected by the events of 09/11.
