Tomorrow is February 25, exactly six months since our lives changed. Six months ago I was getting ready to go to Lewis Black at BSU. I got my favorite DVD autographed, and stupidly, I took the DVD (and book) out of the car that night. I don't think I slept that well because the next day was the first day of school.
I have thought much in the last six months about whether I regret that we weren't home. I know it doesn't matter because it has already happened. In some ways I am so glad we weren't. I think we would have tried to grab more. But I still feel guilty for sending Dan in to get the animals.
Hold all of the families in your thoughts tomorrow. I know it is still hard for many of us, and give us strength as we reflect on that day and the immense changes we have all undergone in the months since.
