So have I mellowed any in the past year?
No. Still angry as I can get.
I don’t have anything profound to write this year. Nothing much happened to remind me of that terrible, terrible day three years ago.
But I do wonder what happened to the kids I met a few Octobers ago. Where they are now, how they’re getting along.
Most of them have probably started families. Some of them might have even been assigned to Iraq, and are there right now.
No matter where they are or what they’re doing, they have my most profound thanks.
