September is a Time That We Remember. With Love.
September: A Time to Remember. With Love.
September is a month that holds a lot of beautiful memories and images. It also holds the promise each year of visual loveliness that can bring me to tears. Of weather that feels so perfect on my skin that I wish it would last forever.
September is the month of my sister’s birthday. This is our families' first year without her. I’m not looking forward to that. We will spend it together and I know that we will laugh and cry and remember her. Still, it will be incomplete without her and I feel bereft as it nears.
September forever dimmed on the eleventh day in 2001. Our country and our communities first shocked, then saddened. September holds the memory, always, of people who gave their lives and families and communities who lost loved ones. Our hearts continue to go out to those men and women who are lost to violence and hatred. As September approaches each year, the mood sobers and becomes more reflective. We remember. With love.
