Eight years in the blink of an eye

It has been eight years since two planes flew into to the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the world as we knew it changed forever.  That morning is burned in my memory, the feelings and sights and horror are still so fresh that it feels almost like just yesterday that I stood in my living room (a different living room, in fact), staring at the television, not wanting to believe my eyes.

Our lives have changed drastically since September 11, 2001.  The way we think has changed.  Travel has changed.  Politics have changed.  People have changed.  Not all of this change has been for the better.  And not all of this change regrettable.  Some of this change just simply had to happen.

I hate that that day had to happen.  I hate a lot of what has happened to this beautiful country as a result.

I wonder how all the family who lost loved ones that day are doing now.   Does it feel like just yesterday to them too?  I bet it does.

It’s hard to know what to say here.  What IS there to say here?  I remember.  I will never forget.
