I don't usually post things like this and I'm not sure why I feel compelled to this year.

Normally, I shun anything 9/11 related. It's too hard.

But I don't want to not acknowledge what happened that day either.

You know I think this is the first time in all the years since that we did not do something in remembrance at school. Not even like the Anthem or something. In a way it is good, these kids were so young then but then in a way it seems wrong to just not acknowledge it. I still remember finishing my lessons with the kids at one school and ready to leave for the second... We did a lesson called shape explosion... never did that lesson again, might have to resurrect it.

Wow, so long ago. *hugs you* You made the right choice!

I was talking to friend at work...remembering how we sat glued the radio, then we went next door to the hotel bar.

Such a crazy day. Feels like yesterday.

I literally cannot watch anything on TV about the attacks. It fucks me up, but I don't want to pretend that its not the anniversary. I think you're right about the young kids though. Too young to remember...

It amazes me how the 'experts' feel we should 'push it to the back of your mind'...
We won't ever forget, and thank you for remembering.

I wonder if they mean that we shouldn't dwell on it. Don't let it consume all of your thoughts. I know for myself, the 3-4 months after the attacks, all I did was think about it, watched every bit of coverage...basically obsessed. It wasn't healthy.

I would hope that they don't mean to forget that day. I don't know how anyone could.
