9/11: A Private Event For This Blogger

A reader wrote in earlier today requesting that we do a post for September 11. To be honest, I have no idea what to write. September 11 is a pivotal marker of history for America, and more so for the residents of New York City. I remember the day vividly. I remember the fears. I remember the faces of others. And I’m sure, if you lived here on that doomed morning, that you do, too. You don’t need a blogger to tell you we must remember. You don’t need a blogger to remember the dead. For me, September 11 is a day I keep to myself. I don’t like to talk about it. I don’t like to rehash the events. For me, few days are kept so privately.

I recognize that others differ. If you find solace in telling your stories of friends and family who perished that day, or in recounting the history for others, we offer you the forum of our comments section. I hope it brings comfort to those who need it, and I hope it fills your need for remembrance.
