9/11

Today makes me extremely sad. It's like everything from that morning comes roaring back. I refuse to turn on the TV. I'm sorry, but I can't go through the hours of video again. Not this year. For once I'm glad to be working a loooonnng day.

Anyway -- let's all take a moment to remember all those we lost.

I wish it were older when it happened. I was only in 4th grade when it all went down. I watched some of the footage and I can't help feeling detached from it...

Clay,

I remember watching everything happen, and phoning my sister to tell her about it. It didn't seem real at the time, but as soon as I tried to explain what was happening, I burst into tears -- almost hysterical with grief. It was just...overwhelming.

It's a weird thing. I don't necessarily like to think about that day...but I would be upset not to have gone through the experience. So yeah, I think I understand what you're saying.
