9.11 - Seven Years Later and Explaining it to Your 2nd Grader - Personal Reflections on today
I wish I had more time to write this, but I have to get back to the real work that is before me. But…today is the seventh anniversary of 9.11. It snuck up on me this year. Two years ago, the 5th anniversary, I had intended to be immersed in 9.11 reflections, but instead had major surgery that day and simply missed out on my and others reflections. Last year I was traveling and awoke in a hotel, grabbed my USA Today from outside my door and realized that it was 9.11. This year, now with two children in elementary school and one in nursery school I knew it was coming, but awoke today with a full schedule, a clogged head, and then was struck. Today is 9.11, the 7th anniversary of one of the most traumatic days of my life.
