Today I, like people all over the world, am remembering those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. I’m going to spend some time learning new names, and being so thankful that I live in a country where first responders ran toward danger instead of away. I’ve spent the last week thinking about what I will tell Annabel when she asks me about 9/11…I’m not sure about a lot, but I know I will tell her about how brave people were that day, how so many helped people they didn’t know, and how our country came together to comfort and mourn. When I hear the expression, “never forget,” those are the things I want to remember and pass on to my children. Fifteen years later, it’s still so hard to grasp what happened that day and what was lost. Love and light to everyone today.
