Alright, so I went to the memorial service. And I'm glad that I did. I feared it would be too painful to remember; it was a tragedy I didn't want to revisit. But I suppose it's good that we do. So many people are still affected by this - so many people are still suffering. I still hope that in the years to come the services will change. Our office handled this one well. There were no pictures of the carnage; and I think that was good. We know what happened - no one can forget those images. But that's not how we need to remember. That's the point I was trying to make earlier (and couldn't quite seem to get out). We need to honor these people as mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters...the firefighters and policemen...real people. We need to remember 9/11 for the lives lost, the lives ruined. I'm glad I attended, and I'm glad that it was held.
