Scary realization

There are now children, born after 9/11, who are older now than I was then.

That's a very strange thing to realize, and it makes me feel oddly...old. Like the assassination of JFK for the previous generation, you remember exactly where you were when you heard that the twin towers fell. I was sitting in my third grade classroom. When I went home that day, I watched the news, and I understood what was happening.

There are now kids - nine years old - who were born after the towers fell. They've lived their entire lives in the decade from hell.
