The Anniversary

I just finished Wednesday's strip. I couldn't think of anything to say that hadn't been said already, so all I did was put down what I remember feeling a year ago. The feelings are still there, actually ... no longer an acute pain, just a kind of quiet ache, but doing Wednesday's strip brought it back into my consciousness.

I was not personally affected by Sept. 11 ... which is to say, I didn't lose any relatives, friends, or associates, although I know people who did. But it did have a profound and lasting effect on me.

Wednesday's strip isn't going to shed any new light on Sept. 11, nor make any grand statement of profound truth. But for all the people out there who went through what I did that day, I hope it will at least give a bit of comfort to know that they weren't alone.
