This is me, definitely out of the office.

I’m grateful for distance from 9/11 terrorist attacks

Out of the Basement Office (column)
Ryan Lewis, Editor

In my column this week, I reflect on the 9/11 terrorist attacks, now 15 years removed.

"It’s strange to think you could probably spend days watching videos and pictures and audio recording of 911 calls about the 9/11 attacks. In many ways, I bet I could approximate the experience I had watching it all unfold live 15 years ago...

"The memories are more distant now. I can honestly say I don’t feel the need to reacquaint myself with the way that felt. Soon enough, I’ll have to, however. My oldest son is 7. At some point, I’ll find myself explaining what happened and the attacks’ many reverberations through our culture and America’s place in the world."
