All these years later, I fear much of what we learned as a result of 9/11 is being lost to time and apathy. Today, there are those who never heard of 9/11. Others simply know about the events of September 11, 2001 through history books and the stories their parents and grandparents tell.
It seems part of everyone’s recent conversations centers around the changing season. Everyone has their opinion. Some (like me) are lamenting the ending of the shorts and flip-flop season. I hear many bemoan the fact that soon darkness will fall on this part of the earth as early as 4:30 pm. Others, like my grandchildren, are eagerly anticipating fall. Emmelia tells me it is her favorite time of year.
