9/11 - Fifteen Years

The buzz around schools these days is that the new kids coming up through high schools are the first class learning about 9/11 from a historical point of view, as opposed to a personal point of view.  I don't know, it's still personal to me, and I don't see how that would mean nothing to my kids.  I guess we're not talking about it much anymore.  Time for some remembering.

While they might learn from a historical perspective, they will at least have a wealth of adults around them that can all recall exactly where they were and what happened that day. It's etched on everyone minds, I can only imagine how much more so as an American. I'm not even American and I can recall the day with total clarity, and the stories of heroism and loss that emerged during and afterwards.

I am thankful so much was said this year since it was the 15th anniversary. How could we ever forget what we were doing when the word came what was happening in NYC. My generation can also tell you exactly where we were when Kennedy was assassinated.
So thankful for the USA. . . .

I often think that 9/11 will be almost as far removed from my grandchildren as WWII was for me - which just seems impossible - WWII always seemed like such ancient history to me, but putting everything in perspective makes it not all that long ago!
