I don’t post on 9/11

Tradition. I’ve said all I want to say about it, but I don’t want to post junk like it’s not a thing.

Feel free to discuss whatever you like in the comment thread, though.

Oh, I remember hard. But I’ve said my piece in prior years and it feels awkward to bandwagon it every year.

Every year as we move away from the events of 9/11, I find the images of the towers falling don’t impact the way they use to. I now try to focus on individual stories from that day to help remind me of the emotions I felt. This year I want to focus on the dogs of 9/11:

Surrounded by the forgetful performing their day-to-day tasks, this day is always tough for me. I can’t fathom how those that have lost loved ones, whether directly or indirectly, can cope with that loss. More excruciating has to be witnessing the masses’ lack of recognition of this heinous act, and even some who show disdain towards the remembrance or commemoration of this date etched in history.(I live in a city with a huge university, and have terse exchanges with clueless Uniturds regularly).

I weep for the lost, I hope for the families and friends, and I live for the promise of a better future, and I will never forget.

Semper Fidelis.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
