Today is Remembrance Day

When I flipped my desk calendar over, there it was.

“Patriot Day.”

No, it’s “Remembrance Day.” Enough with the posturing and the framing and the spinning already.

We remember family, friends, colleagues, total strangers, and maybe one or two saints.

Many were not American – workers at Windows on the World, business travelers from many lands, and maybe some tourists. We remember them too.

Please, let’s not Hallmark this day with cynical, politically motivated labels and imagery.

This is a solemn day of remembrance.
