I'm glad I remember, but I'll always wish I could forget.

There's no chance in my lifetime that this date is ever just going to be another day on the calendar, is there?

I mean, it's not like I was filled with dread or anything, or had the desire to go and hide under a blanket all day and just try to forget all the images and feelings etched into my memory. I'm past all that now, though it did take me a while.

I just wish we could go back to a time when the only thing we had to remember about a September 11th was a dentist appointment or something.
