Our generation’s infamous date

Today, of course, is the anniversary of one of the worst days in American history. Hard to believe it’s been 18 years since September 11, 2001.

I work with 11 and 12-year-olds every day, and to them “September 11” might as well have been something that happened during the Civil War.

But we’ll take time today to remember, all of us, whether dates that begin with 19 sound like ancient history or whether dates that start with 2 still sound like some distant future.

We’ll remember those lost; we’ll remember the heroism; we’ll remember the sacrifice.

We’ll remember.
