It was August of 2001 when Marci and I learned we were expecting our first child. So when we visited the 9/11 Memorial in New York City — together with our 11-year-old (and 8-year-old and 5-year-old) — this summer, I was especially struck by the inscription memorializing Helen Crossin Kittle and Her Unborn Child.
A lot of time has passed since September 11, 2001, but I still remember the day vividly. There’s not much to say about that day (at least nothing that hasn’t already been said). But I just feel like it’s good to say that I remember.
