It's 2 in the afternoon and I just realized it's 9/11. That in itself is not unusual, I sometimes go long stretches where I lose track of the day - just part of the joy of living with chronic pain, but it took me a while to remember why 9/11 is significant.
That made me sad. It's been only 7 years. Worse yet, we are still at war in Afganistan and Iraq, how could I forget that?
Have we become so numb to war that it no longer affects us? I hope not.
