Tuesday, September 11, 2012


I had planned to reflect on September 11 today, but words escape me. My memories are very similar to so many: I was sitting in a classroom, I watched in disbelief as the towers crumbled, I tried to understand. 

But today isn't about me or my memories. It isn't just about American flags and patriotism, or any political agenda. Today is about the lives lost on that sunny Tuesday over a decade ago, and the lives of those who have since fought to avenge them. 

Today, I remember. But more importantly, today I hope for peace.
