September 11th Memory

On September 11th 2001, my husband and I were in a remote are of Northern Vietnam. It took a whole day for us to hear the news about the World Trade Center, and without other Americans around, an internet connection, or even a quality news source, it was very difficult to comprehend. Ten years later, it still is.

Wherever you were that day, and whatever your own memories might be, I hope you're taking some time today to reflect on how precious life is.

    We were in France, at a friend's wedding, glued to the TV. What's harder, now, for me to comprehend is quite how many hundreds of thousands of people have died in the last decade because of 9/11.
