My god son runs through the 9/11 memorial in Sewanee, TN. Photo by @salvarezphoto (Stephen Alvarez). He asked me what the flags were for so I said to remember the people who died 11 years ago in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. But how do explain 911 to someone who was not alive when it happened? Watching my god son run through those flags gave me hope that his generation would not be scarred in the way that ours is.
