Tuesday. This morning is that day. The day where you send your kids to school in red/white/and blue in remembrance of that day. In my case –2 kids who really don’t understand what today (aka that day) is and I really don’t know how to explain it to them. I don’t feel like I could make sense of it. I feel like they still need to be shielded from it.
I just watched a new movie last night called, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. Have you seen it? If not, you should watch it. Every year the honey-do and I watch something that pays tribute to what today is all about. The little boy in the movie called it the “worst day”. I think that sums it up for all of us.
My 2 littles though (who don’t understand what today is) make today a little brighter. They were all smiles as they went to school. They remind me that today can be happy while reflecting. It doesn’t have to be sad, as hard as can be not be. But one day I will educate them on it and although it’s okay to be happy today….it’s never okay to forget.
