My daughter was a baby on 9/11/2001. For all of her life, on this day, her age will always be the number of years since that dreadful day. I’ll never forget the sight of her sitting on the floor, happily playing with a chew toy when just beyond her, on the TV, we watched the most horrific sights we had ever seen.

I love the light towers they put up every year at the Twin Towers site:

But one day, I hope to see them replaced with real towers, once again.
