What’s it like to be born the day after a famous day in history? Really, it’s not so bad as long as you don’t fixate on dates, because the special event that just occurred yesterday is still taking center stage. Especially in today’s world.
So it means people born the day after a special event get to bask in its glory but must claim their own right. I know.
I was born the day after D-Day. This year we both turned seventy, but only one of us is remembered on the national scene. No matter.
Because my June birthday is unique, I’m sensitive to those who were born on September 11 in any given year. This too is a special event, even if it’s overshadowed by others.
