Every time...

Every time the sky is a brilliant blue, I remember 9/11.

Every time I see a plane flying low, I remember 9/11.

Every time I smell a building burning or see a nearby plume of smoke, I remember 9/11.

I remember that day a lot. I really don't need an anniversary to make me sit and think about those horrors. But we are a people of anniversaries and so I cannot fault the immense coverage we are now experiencing. But I can ask, are we really at the point of "remembering" when, in many ways, we're still living and reliving that day?

Some things seem distant 5-years on. This still feels like yesterday.

Amba has some good thoughts on this as does Callimachus.
