There’s a lot to process when it comes to 9/11. Yesterday even though I knew I “should” post, that it was “the thing” to say something, I decided to keep this blog quiet. I didn’t know what to say that hasn’t already been said, and I don’t remember much even though I do.
Honestly, it was an uneventful Sunday. I went to church, then I went to historic Concord. Later I had dinner with friends and walked around MIT. I stood at the spot where the American Revolution began. I saw massive, awesome displays of the American flag on the MIT campus. I felt relieved that on that day, life was peaceful.
When it comes to how I feel about my country, I think I’m uncharacteristically patriotic. Despite the politics, economy, etc, I am thankful for the people who serve my country. I watched this today, thanks to Mish, and I wanted to share it with you all because I want to remind you that regardless of our differences and affiliations, at the heart of our nation lie individuals. Persons. Lives. They matter.
