What I remember is such chaos and fear and sadness. I was on vacation in Delaware, visiting my mom with my 3-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter. I was in the first trimester of pregnancy with Youngest. My mom and I took the kids to the boardwalk to escape. There was no escape. There would be no escape for months.
I do remember. I do mourn. I chose then to avoid all the images. I choose to avoid them again today, 10 years later. I have not forgotten. I will never forget. But I choose to go forward.
