I hate when people refer to it as ‘nine-eleven’

one / two / three

A schoolteacher friend quietly (and almost embarrassedly) confessed to me yesterday afternoon that ever since the attacks, she cannot bring herself to write today’s date. Really, I said, and she said I’ve tried, I just can’t. She goes the entire day without dating a thing.

We all do what we can to manage I told her. We all do what we can to manage, especially in light of all the changes to this country since that day seven years ago.

    You know what I hate about it most the last year or two? The “where I was and what I was doing when I heard” stories that people fall all over themselves to share on the anniversaries. They sound like they’re trying to outdo each other with just how close they (or a friend, or relative, etc.) were to it. And I know it’s one way people have of coping, but I hate it worse every year.
