This day sneaks up on me every year. Yesterday I sat in my office updating my calendar and there it was.
It's no holiday. There's nothing to prepare for, nothing special to do except remember the events of that day. I try not to dwell on it, and my thoughts drift to the people I know whose birthdays are today.
But I still can't bring myself to write about any other topic here than the one that is on my mind and on the mind of millions of others.
So for today I will remember, like I have every year for the past thirteen.
Last year I wrote about what I was doing on September 11, 2001.
Join me in remembering.
