When the weather starts to get a bit of chill to it.... you know, the kind of gorgeous late summer day with that nice crisp breeze? The kind of day you looked forward to all summer?
It always reminds me of 9/11 now. I can't get over that feeling. As far as the weather goes, that was a perfect day, and I remember that morning before those dreaded events very clearly.... as clear as that crystal blue sky. My birthday is on the 14th. My birthday isn't really a day to celebrate for me anymore, since it coincides with all of the events of that time.
It's a very sad time of year, indeed. A time to reflect on all of the things happening in this world that we can't control... and a time to hold on to our loved ones dearly.
I'm still waiting on the world to change... hopefully, for the better. And hopefully, to reach a point where I feel safe again.
