Today is the 11th anniversary of the September 11th Attacks. It’s hard to believe it’s been over a decade since that horrible day, when everything started out right and ended so catastrophically. Today I plan to honor the memory of those who died by watching the media coverage and observing moments of silence. Later today I will take my daughter on a play date with a friend and her son. We are taking them to a place that’s perfect for imaginative play so we can escape from the solemnness of this day for just a little while. Balancing the day between joy and remembrance is the best way for me to ensure the terrorists don’t change my way of life.
While you can slice about anything you want today and every week, please feel free to share slices about where you were eleven years ago or how you’re marking this anniversary eleven years later. Ruth and I have blogged quite a bit about September 11th over the past five years, so just do a category search for “September 11th” or “September 11th Tribute” and you can read through our past posts.
