In Remembrance

It’s hard to believe that five years have passed. It was difficult for me to turn on the television this morning. I had to steel myself against the barrage of images I knew were waiting. No matter what your political affiliation (and believe me, we’re pretty divided in my house), no matter what your opinion is on global affairs, one thing is constant: We’re all still devasted by what happened on that September day five years ago.
They say that memory dulls with time, but I have yet to experience that particular phenomenon as it applies to such a significant event. I will never forget the sight of the towers collapsing. I will never forget the icy feeling of shock and helplessness that I felt. The world has changed an awful lot in the last five years, but one thing has remained the same: No one ever wants to feel that way again. Public opinion and support (or lack thereof) of various political agendas is all over the map, but at the end of the day, I’m pretty sure we all want the same thing.
“General opinion is starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. Seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignifed or newsworthy, but it’s always there: Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge, but were all messages of love.”
