Remembering 9/11

Where were you 11 years ago?

Does it come back to you, what you were doing when you heard what was happening?

Do you have a story to share?



It irks me that some media are pronouncing that remembering 9/11 is waning. As if there should be a grand celebration every year? With all due respect, no. It is part of human nature, part of the grieving cycle, that there is less emphasis over time. If there wasn't, we could not go on. It is natural that there is less. We have come around each of us, in many ways, to adjust to the events of the day, the changes it brought. If we haven't, there is still work to do, and that is okay. That is part of the human experience.

Just because there is no grand celebration doesn't mean we don't remember.
