September 11, 2001 A day I shall never forget and so many of us will not.
But just think - 9/11/19 - kids are turning 18 years old. Obviously they get to celebrate their birthday - dinner out, presents, cake. Is there a shadow that looms? What do they know of their birth date? Do they care?
What is taught in the schools? Do we have any lessons learned?
I just know that for me, the date brings a pause...a slight stutter step if I type the date at work.
If I watch a documentary of some sort or the news and the brief tributes on 9/11, I will cry.
I have not been to the National Memorial in NYC, but I understand it is quite well done and rather haunting.
