It just keeps happening – the more years that go by, the more time thats between the present and September 11th, 2001. Its awkward now – how do we honor the dead while keeping up with the progress that we need? The only answer I have is to keep on doing what were doing, I guess, and to remember the victims a little extra today.
Also, for the record, I have to fight the urge to wish people a “happy” September 11th. Its weird. Theres no real phrase for “hey, its a day that we wish hadnt happened, but it did so we should acknowledge it somehow.” Someone should think of one.
