Remembering

I’m lucky. I didn’t lose anyone on September 11, but people around me did. From a co-worker who lost a brother to friends who lost a groomsman (I was in their wedding party too), the memories never fade. Today the nation remembers, but we will never forget. Yet we go on.

The sky is blue, just as it was ten years ago, but it is hotter. Street closures in my neighborhood reminded me that it is also Adams Morgan Day, the longest running street festival in DC – 33 years and going strong. It is always held the second Sunday in September and today was no different.
