“It’s just a day for me now,” said my ex roommate, the one who lived with me on 9/11/2001.
I was taken back by her response to my text to her saying I couldn’t believe twelve years had passed already.
Granted, this year I didn’t turn on the TV in the morning to watch the names being read (do they still do that?), but September 11th could never be “just a day for me.” Particularly as we hear about the turmoil in the Middle East on a daily basis.
Last year I wrote about visiting the memorial, and on the tenth anniversary I wrote a post sharing my first hand account of the day. If you haven’t read those posts I do hope you take a minute to do so.
I apologize for my absence from I HAVE CAT as of late. I’ve been dealing with some personal struggles and hope to someday soon return to being a more dependable blogger.
I leave you with this poignant tribute. A commercial created by Budweiser that only ran once (they say because the company did not want to receive financial benefit from the tragedy).
May you all be safe and never forget 9/11. The innocents who perished, and the way it irrevocably changed our country.
