It felt weird not to acknowledge the 20th anniversary of 9/11, so while initially I fought the post, I finally leaned into it. Kind of.
I have zero new to say about it. I have no new insight.
What I can't find are the photos I took three weeks after the event, when I was in NYC. Maybe they're on a jump drive somewhere - or somewhere on my old laptop.
I can count on one finger the times I've just reposted something, so this won't be that. But it will be a retrospective.
Below are links to some of my 9/11 posts - be it the actual day/anniversary, visits to memorial sites, etc.......but mostly just the first two.
I don't think they'll be in any order - not even chronological. Just stuff for you to read, should you want to........or not. But it's 9/11. Not to read my stuff is kind of disrespecting the victims.....and the terrorists win. .........but that's on you.
Possibly my best 9/11 post. It's 10 years old. It's 10 years out from the original date.
No. Maybe this one is better, from five year anniversary
Ramblings after a visit to the 9/11 Memorial Site. A visit. There have been multiple.
A slight bit of levity ?
This place is still haunted for me, but I oddly love going there.
I've been once. Never a need again.
The memorial wasn't completely finished on our visit. I would like to go back at some point.
It was our final memorial visit. I got in trouble.
I've said a number of times in some of those above posts that 'this is my last 9/11 post'. Clearly, I lied. But THIS time, it'll stick. Maybe I'll be around for the 30th, perhaps not. But even if I am - that would be another decade of blogging. I'm not sure I'll have that in me.
....and yes. That's what she said.
