I’m not a “never forget” person, mostly because I think it generally sounds like sanctimonious finger-wagging.
But I do remember, in the days and weeks following 9/11, thinking we were finally going to come together and stop being so shitty to one another, and… well, we see how that worked out. It tends to make me a bit weepy and introspective.
So. Life is short. Please don’t be shitty. Tell someone you love them. I love you guys. Thanks for hanging out with me.
