Remembering 9/11

With the focus on the Katrina, I want to take some time to remember four years ago today. In part because time is mitigating our immediate horrors of this tragedy and in part because today’s anniversary falls on a Sunday (when I am home and not retracing my exact steps to work on 9/11), I am rereading stories posted to Dichotomy: It Was a Matter of Time and Place.

As new events supplant the importance of older ones and as new generations grow up to experience their own history, the nature of September 11, like December 7, will evolve. I recognize the significance of the attack on Pearl Harbor in an historical fashion, not as a witness like my parents’ generation. My children will remember 9/11 in a similar way.

Where we were and when we were affected how we experienced these terrorist attacks. And now time in another way is becoming part of our perceptions of that day.
