Has It Really Been 13 Years?

Never forget what happened on 9/11/2001.  Read my remembrance when I wrote about it on my blog ten years after that tragic day. Now it's 13 years and counting. My children weren't even born yet. My students were just little kids when it happened.

As the years pass, I hope we remember what we lost that day and also what we may have gained -- a new sense of purpose, maybe, to savor every moment of this gift called life. Let's not take any of our liberties for granted and let's all strive to make this a better world if we can.
