From Catherine, yesterday:
Greetings again from northern Idaho! I’m sending you here a picture of the back of a truck that I took a few weeks ago in a parking lot in Sandpoint, Idaho. If you ever get the chance, this area of the country is gorgeous, and I highly recommend seeing it. My family has lived here for about a year, and coming from Chicago, it certainly is a breath of fresh air, literally and figuratively.
I’ve been meaning to send you this for awhile, but life has been crazy here. However, since one of the bumper stickers mentioned 9/11, I wanted to send it out. Regardless if you publish it or not, there are a huge amount of people who, like you, will not forget….
And so, although in many ways this will be kind of a normal day, I do have to mention one more thing. My kids are 3 and 2, and this morning, my 3-year-old, as she normally does, went to her drawer to pick out clothes for the day. She knows nothing about 9/11, but she pulled out her US flag shirt. I asked her if mommy should wear her flag shirt too, and she said yes, today should be a flag shirt day. 🙂
I hope you and yours are well, and I wish you the best from across the country.
