Eleven Years Since 9/11

Crazy.  Jeremy was a student at BYU telling his roommate to hit snooze on his radio alarm because the movie being advertised on the radio about a plane flying into the WTC sounded lame.  Suzy was an LDS missionary in Italy wondering what in the world was happening.  Our kids weren't born yet and we still haven't told them about it.  Eleven years later it's still hard to process.

Last year, for the 10th anniversary, we visited the 9/11 memorial display at the Newseum in D.C.  It's a nice tribute, displaying part of the radio tower from the top of one of the buildings with scores of 9/12 front-page articles on the walls.

This is a shot of Ground Zero that I took from my hotel room last October, just after the 10th anniversary.  Somehow, the enormity of the reconstruction aids in comprehending the enormity of the tragedy.
