I hadn’t really planned on writing anything special about today. In fact, the original plan was to go home after work and be with my wife, thereby enjoying all the good things life has to offer. I figured that was probably the most fitting way to remember. But that plan will have to wait as Angela won’t be home tonight. 🙂
Seeing as how my wife will be flying out of town this evening, I don’t think I’ll really be marking the occasion at all. It’s not that I don’t remember, I just don’t need an anniversary to remind me. I spent 16 years of my life seeing the WTC from my backyard, any picture of the New York skyline reminds me, no matter what day it is.
It’s also not that I’m worried about Angela flying today. I think she’s as safe as she would be any other day, maybe more so.
It’s just that life has gone on. I’ll be consumed with the business of living, and I think that’s exactly what those who are no longer with us would want us to do.
