Remembering 9-11

Teen was six on 9-11.

The next day she started cutting out little stick figures and laying them on the ground. She asked if she had enough to represent all the dead people.

I said no. Maybe that wasn't the right thing, I don't know. We were all in a daze.

She kept drawing and cutting.

It was never enough.

I still have an envelope filled with all the dead.
