The Cost

Don't you just shudder when thinking of those who lost their lives... how they died, knowingly and in terror. It's a rhetorical question, of course. And those left behind... how to eradicate "the how" from their minds' eyes, to find a way to remember the smile of the before-soul. We just have to remember, even if it means jarring our senses by looking yearly at images of the ashes that once held life. We must teach 9-11 and its aftermath, as a reminder that our freedoms are clearly far from free. Heartbreaking.
