A day of remembrance ...

There seems to be little to say on a day like this, at least nothing that has not already been said by those far more eloquent than I.  I have been sitting in front of the television since early this morning, listening to survivors' recollections of the day that changed the lives of all Americans, including those yet unborn, forever.  I have listened to the quivering voices of the families of the Ground Zero victims reading out their names.  

Ten years have passed since that day, and in some ways the wounds seem as fresh as they were in the first days and weeks after the attacks, and in others, it seems, we have moved on far too well from the day that both shattered our collective innocence and united us in a way that nothing else has in my lifetime.

For those who lost someone you loved that day, please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, and that the memories of those you loved will always be kept sacred by those other than yourselves.
