It was a shocking day and things did change a lot afterward.
But this post isn't about all that. Too many people have said all the things I could think of to say, often much more eloquently than I could.
To me, September 11 is a little more personal.
|My grandparents, Gus and Lucille, on their wedding day.|
September 11, 1948. Gus Caponi and Lucille Simpson got married, joining a boisterous Sicilian family and a Scots-Irish clan.

My grandpa died in March of 1998, just a few months before their 50th wedding anniversary. Grandma died in August of 2002.
For me, September 11 has always been their anniversary. It's a day for me to remember two very special people.
