I tend to be forgetful at times. That’s why I write things on sticky notes or enter items on the Notes app in my phone. These things are useful tools in the never-ending battle against forgetfulness. Even with these tools, however, I find that I can still be forgetful. What’s really bad is when I write things down and still forget them! Sadly, it is human nature to forget things at times—even important things.
“Never Forget” is a popular slogan from the attacks of September 11, 2001. That day remains one of the worst ones that our nation has endured. Eighteen years later, I can remember that day very vividly. I can remember where I was, what I was doing, and the awful scenes of 9/11. I’ll never forget the images of firefighters and police officers running into the towers instead of away from them.
