9/11

I realized last night how much 9/11 depresses me.

The attacks were bad enough. I don't anyone I knew died in the attacks; certainly, not anyone I was in touch with, and in the years since, I haven't found out about former classmates having died in it or anything. However, living at the time about ten miles from the Pentagon, belonging to a Catholic parish in Georgetown, DC, I knew people who knew victims. I've been to the site in New York City and have biked past the Pentagon since that day. I never made a detour to the Pennsylvania crash site, but I've been within miles of it, too, on the Pennsylvania Turnpike many times.

What depresses me is how America changed after the attack.Read more... )
As I said, 9/11 is a depressing day of reflection for me. The world is not as I would have it. I'm much worse off than I was on 9/10/01.
