You know, I hadn’t really thought hard about it, until I heard Garrison Keeler talk about it on this week’s Prairie Home Companion.

I still cannot fathom the loss of life, the horror, and the sheer magnitude of 9-11. As the anniversary approaches, and I find the poignant words, not the news media, not the poets, and not the politicians, but people who say what they mean, and how the feel, for no other reason than to express that they cannot express themselves.

I still cry for New York. It was my home. I will always love that city, and I will always feel some pain when I think of what has happened.

I will probably cry in September for a long, long time.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    It was difficult to see all of the anniversary preparations while we were there… I think it is a tragedy that won’t be forgotten any time soon. :(
