I’m doing my best to avoid television reruns of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center buildings. I don’t want to watch the films another time as they’re already seared in my consciousness. I understand that this is a national catharsis, but I’m already catharsed.
Instead, I’m focusing on my son Kevin’s birthday. He and I claimed September 11 long before planes toppled buildings. And he’s not the only one. My dearest friend Carol also shares the birthday date. I’ve made sure to let each of them know I remember.
In fact, I roamed through my blog archives and saw that eleven years ago I wrote on the same subject. Rather than re-invent the wheel – or the blog – I ask you to visit this link. And wish everyone with a connection to this date – -whether through birth or death – your support.
