quiet thoughts on a Friday morning

We're approaching the 5-year anniversary of September 11th, and I don't know what is the best way to remember it.

2001 was the year I first started teaching. I remember the boy who interrupted my class to tell us we had to turn on the TV because "This is as big as the Kennedy assassination." In retrospect, it's amazing what that meant to us even though Kennedy had been shot long before either of us were born. I imagine my post-9/11 children talking about that day in history and trying to comprehend the terror we all felt, the significance of the attack, and the way it changed our world.
