There are a handful of days, moments even, that I will never forget. I'll never forget sixth grade social studies, on that sunny Tuesday in September 2001. I'll never forget the morning of my 13th birthday in 2003 when we first started bombing Iraq, I'll never forget the day in August 2010 when I first lost someone I knew in Afghanistan. There are other days I'll never forget, but there will never be another day in my life that won't be impacted by those three and I know that is a fact. We will never be the same again, but we need to continue moving on. To quote Talib Kweli, "stand tall or don't stand at all."
