I Won't Blog About 9/11

Tomorrow is the tenth anniversary of 9/11. I’m not going to blog about it. I’m not going to write an essay, or a reflection, or a news puff piece. I’m telling you this because I don’t want people to think I’ve forgotten, or that I don’t care, or that I think there are more important things out there.

But already my life is inundated with essays, reflections, photos, opinions, and news pieces. Everyone with a blog feels that they must do this go on the record with some anniversary content that will end up being just twaddle.

I’m not going to do that, because frankly, there are some people out there you should listen to, and I’m not one of them. I’m just a guy with opinions, and mine don’t matter enough to fool with – not more than yours.

I’d like you to know that I don’t feel I need to broadcast my thoughts to you, but don’t think for a moment that I'm not thinking about it.
