I cried on-and-off all weekend.

Every year, I find myself completely glued to 9/11 anniversary coverage...and every year I cry my heart-out.

This year, Tom Brokaw's retrospective especially got to me...seeing Tom Brokaw break down in tears. Tom Brokaw's strong. He's a comfort. When Tom Brokaw cries, you know there's a very good reason to cry.

Every year, I watch the names being read and this year, to see so many kids pay tribute to their parents and realize that they barely have any memories of them...

Does this ever get easier?

Will 9/11 ever stop being so heartbreaking?

I don't think it will...and I don't think it's supposed to.
