Our collective grief
Those of us alive in 2001 will always grieve on this day.
It may not be as raw as that first couple of years following the attacks, but it hasn’t gone away.
For those who lost a father or mother, a husband or wife, a son or daughter, it will never go away.
And it’s compounded this year because we’re dealing with collective grief, mourning the deaths of 190,000 Americans to Covid.
We need kindness and compassion more now than we ever have.
