When everything didn’t change

The thing I’ll always remember about that day ten years ago isn’t what I guess most people will recall.
Certainly there’s the shock of the attack and loss of life, and I say that with no intention of minimizing what other people went through.
But during the moments when the attacks were occurring, I was walking one of my daughters to kindergarten. It was a special time when one twin got a parent to themselves, and it continued that entire year.
And to this day I go back to that memory, an event that went on even as horrible evil was being perpetrated against innocent people.
Because of that memory, I’ve privately disagreed with anyone who’s said that everything changed after 9/11.
Only if we let it change, and only if we let it all change for the worse.
