Today must be the coolest day I can remember experiencing in August. And it's raining.
That is in the forefront. In the background, which in this case means all around, everywhere, is the fact that my brother has now been gone as long as he was here. Twenty-six years. I am thankful that my younger, out of town sister is visiting, at home with Mom today. Twenty-six years...so much has happened. I remember where I was, for that first somber anniversary. Was that really twenty-five years ago?
The internet, Bill Clinton, the Oklahoma City bombing, 9/11, the 2004 Tsunami, Barack Obama, social media, cell phones...there's probably something huge and glaring I'm not even thinking of.
I am thinking of Kevin. Quite often, actually. Today is a day that must be acknowledged.
Let the week begin.
