  • To me, remembering is how I honor those who died. Their lives were lost suddenly, horribly. On Sep. 12 last year, I saw a picture of someone falling to their death from the towers, and I thought, "That was the last seconds of that person's life. No one will ever hear from them again. I will never personally get the chance to meet them. They lived, had friends and/or family, had a life that meant something, and now are dead." I resolved that those people would not be forgotten.

    I understand we all have very different reactions to this. Some of us would like to completely forget everything. Most of us would like to move on. In all that, I take today as a time to remember, to preserve the memory of those lost, and the horrible events that shook this nation.

    • We've been preserving the memories for a year now. There is no danger that they will be forgotten.
      • I know. I'm not worried you will forget. I'm not worried anyone else will forget, or that I'll forget. I'm just explicitly remembering.

    • I don't know. I hugged someone I loved for a few minutes and called it good.

      I've always thought it's more important to focus on what's ahead than what's past, especially in a situation like this. I like to think that the best way to honor the dead is to continue living.

      Good thing I don't watch the news, I guess...
