What 9/11 Gave Us
I hesitated. Shouldn't I keep them inside, get them to listen to some history, discuss the significance of the day with them? Just for a few minutes before they went on with their normal activities? The girls were standing there, waiting, the only two members of our family born since that fateful day 10 years ago - they wouldn't have been here if my husband had happened to be in the wrong place that morning. Their standing there, alive, is significant, in that life for us has gone on uninterrupted; we were some of the lucky ones. Shouldn't we celebrate that normalcy?
Heady stuff, and all before 10 AM..whew...it's that sort of a day, isn't it?
