A Day of Memory

"A small sorrow distracts; a great one makes us collected." ~Richter

Today I'm asking that all who visit my blog take a moment to remember September 11, 2001. Years pass and memories fade, both for good and for bad, but I think it's important to think back on just how horrific that day was, and everything that resulted from it. No political comments, please -- there's a lot that has been said, and could still be said, and not everything that our country did before or after that day was noble.

But we lost so much that day, and to all those people who became victims on September 11, we owe at least a moment of dignified silence to honor their lives. We miss you and try our best to live on in ways that make this country and this world a better place.
