9/11/13

Usually, I don’t dwell on the anniversary of 9/11. But our youngest son has now entered the US Military Academy Prep School, at West Point. So 12 years after the fact the personal impact of that day has arrived. The attacks came on Raymond’s first day of first grade. Just as Watergate and Nixon’s impeachment shaped my world view and the path I took, Sept. 11, 2001, defined Raymond.

If you are a runner at West Point (I suppose everyone’s a runner at West Point), you join with hundreds of others on Sept. 11 for the Patriot Day Flag Run – when dozens of teams keep American flags moving the entire day.
