Comments: Another Anniversary

"There was no off-button for them." Indeed. And I imagine there is still a horrific replay of the events.

I turned the television off finally because the replays weren't replays to my oldest, then four. He just saw plane after plane slamming into buildings. And as you said, I was grateful to be able to do so.

As the boys have grown, we've exposed them to more and more. But it's so sad to see the innocence lost as it happens. But they learn compassion and can join in the prayer.

We haven't broached the topic with our small fry. I agree with everything you said, though. It's amazing to me that this happened so long ago. I'm thankful we have a president who hasn't forgotten, and many brave men and women who haven't forgotten. God bless them for the burden they have taken on and for doing the hard work of protecting the rest of us.
