I love the fall. The cool weather. Kids are back in school. The leaves change colors. Wearing warmer clothing.
The fall also makes me sad. I think about the loss of 9-11. New York City. Washington DC. Twin Towers. Lives lost. Terror in America. 9-11 also pulled many of us together.
I think about the kids in Newtown. Sandy Hook will never be the same and the tragedy that occurred on December 14, 2012 will never be forgotten.
The fall is a bittersweet time for me. I hope we can fill it with better memories in the future.
