Went to Internet Archive to find my blog post from 20 years ago. More interesting than anything I had to say was this comment from my grandmother, who died this January:

Dearest Kimber…yes, you will remember today & what you did & were doing…and possibly feel a sadness for the terror and loss and a little bit of maturing….I know, for I can vividly recall the memories of the Pearl Harbor Attack when I was in 7th grade and the impact & saddness that followed those war years…but happiness as well as tears come along and in a wink, blink & nod the years go on, but memories linger….I love you very much my precious, gorgeous granddaughte.
