I have been alive now in a post-9/11 world for longer than I was alive in a pre-9/11 world. Honestly, what struck me most last night (or I guess technically early this morning) on rewatching the first two hours of ABC's then-live coverage of events as they unfolded is that Iím not sure I could ever imagine anything ever being different. I can no more imagine a world without 9/11 than I can without the moon landing, the Kennedy assassinations, or WWII, all of which occurred before I was born. In a sense, that puts 9/11/01, at least in my mind sitting here 18 years on, as about as far from "everything changed" as I think I can get.

The world was always thus, and always thus will be.
