Six years ago today I sat in class, learning about this, wondering why my teacher cared about it on that particular morning. Too immature to give him the credit to realize he just hadn’t seen the news yet.

Today, I’m having an all day moment of silence, no blogging or commenting. (I’m sure I’ll still read, because, hello, addict. But I need to be quiet today.) I’m going out with Alex to play in the sun. I’m celebrating that WE CAN, and doing it to honor those who can’t.
