Meaningless

September 11 is meaningless to me. It holds no meaning for me beyond being my friend’s birthday and another calendar day.

The events that happened on September 11 so many years ago are tragic and were/are devastating to many persons.

I am not one of those persons. 

I was shaken in the moment, but I was never truly affected on a personal level. I didn’t personally know anyone who died and I wasn’t in a place where planes became weapons.

I hold no sense of pride in this country. I hold no sense of anger and hatred that would lead to a jingoistic response.

I just see all the flags today and need to respond.
