My Last Memorial

September 11th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized

I’m not saying I won’t think about it or observe it in some way, but this is my last year heading downtown on 9/11. I almost don’t want to go today, but I’m part of a service and besides, I like seeing the friends I made.

I’m also hoping to catch a glimpse of the Obamas!

I took this yesterday, it’s behind St. Paul’s and in front of the World Trade Center site.

    I thought this entry was poignant and on the mark about how this was the last “major” 9/11 anniversary where the event is a matter of living memory, rather than the historical event it is destined to become by the 25th anniversary:

    Oh wow, he said it beautifully.

    I clicked on the link in Tagryn’s response and when I read these words:
    “Count yourself lucky that you have memories of the world as it was before”, I realized that I couldn’t even remember what I used to be afraid of.

    Death, heights, spiders.
