The morning after 9/11, I was numbly eating breakfast with my son, trying to read the funnies as we usually did each morning. I was humbly grateful that his school had not been underneath that fourth plane as it went down the day before, because for a time, no one knew where that plane really was until it went down in Pennsylvania. I got to this image, and could not eat another bite. Tears welled up uncontrollably again, as had happened the entire day before, as still do now, and during private moments on this day, each year.
