Still thinking of 9/11, adding it to the list of the many sad moments this year.

It’s hard to believe that 9/11 happened 19 years ago. The shock and sorrow still resonates. 

And in this year, with a divisive political situation and a virus that has been claiming so many lives, I felt this morning I needed to think about 9/11. 

Five years ago on a chilly January day, I visited the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. It was a sobering event. Only a few whispers, and some sobs, but what made the museum so interesting was the information was presented right down the line – no politics, no visual shouting, just the facts. (The photograph I took is not the best in the world, but the column was emblematic.)

The museum is not open, but there are virtual tours. The memorial is open, that big hole in the ground watching water drain down and down to the concept of hell.

With so many problems right now, taking one day to think of something or someone else makes sense. 

Only a few links, but…
