It was my senior year of college. We had been engaged a month and classes had only been in session a few weeks.
Ten years later, that day seems like a dream, but I remember how events unfolded with amazing clarity. I know parts of my life–like living in Washington, DC–resulted fully from what happened that day.
I intend to spend today in mostly quiet meditation. A lot has happened in 10 years that would not have happened otherwise. I’ll leave it to the wonks and pundits to argue whether or not the world is a better place because of things that happened since.
