Yesterday marked the sixth anniversary of 9/11. Unfortunately, I believe we have downplayed the signifigance of this anniversary. I did lead a music group yesterday and sang some special patriotic songs as it is now "Patriot Day." My group was appreciative and shared more stories from WWII as those are more prominent in their minds than 6 years ago.

I asked my first grader if she did anything special and she shrugged. I asked her if she knew anything about 9/11 or New York and her response, "Does Brittney Spears live there?" Oh the mind of an innocent 6 year old.

Remembering 9/11...

Isn't that funny that Britney Spears was front and center in her mind? - Seems like she was getting more tv coverage the last few days then the memory of 9/11.

Congrats on your loss!!
