Sept. 11 is becoming ancient history

Trying to explain September 11 to kids born in the past decade or so is kind of like trying to explain the coronavirus to, well, kids born in the past decade or so. The world isn’t really like this, so we claim, and soon enough we’ll be back to normal.

Because that’s all any of us really wants. Just to go back to normal.

And someday we’ll talk about it like it’s ancient history.

Isn’t it pretty to think so?
