This would have been a post about 9/11…
…but I just don't have the heart for it today. I tried writing something earlier, didn't work.
Just came back from a meeting where they acknowledged the day, and several people had comments to share. Even though this was a business meeting, the speakers got very profound.
The day continues to affect us in so many ways. I suppose you could say the world changed that day. Have you ever watched a pre-9/11 movie and thought to yourself, "That could never happen now"? Last Christmas, we watched Home Alone again, and the idea of almost missing your international, non-stop flight to Paris from Chicago and running through customs, with the flight attendant merely counting you as you pile into your seats in both first class and coach, was surreal. No way could they have left the ground like that today.
And every now and then in a movie set in New York, there will be the glamour shot of Manhattan with the Twin Towers in glorious display. I never realized how iconic they were until they were gone.
So today I guess the way to describe my emotion is pensive and contemplative, along with some mourning for how the world was altered. Any thoughts to share? Would love to have them.
And I guess this post was about 9/11 after all.
