But I am relieved for those who have found the Memorial to be a source of connection and healing.


Thank you!

I don't have much to add to anniversary discussions that are flowing through our media.

I was a young-ish man in 2001, with a baby. I am no longer young and that baby is now 20 years old, a fine young man, with no memories of the worst day ever. Time is passing, and like almost any wound, time is healing. When that 2001 baby is my age, with no memories of the day, I expect Sept 11 will have just become another historical checkmark for him, like December 7 or June 6.

That's not a bad thing; life is lived moving forward. I doubt, however, Sept 11 could ever become just another a historical checkmark for me.
