To the Editor:

When I think of anniversaries, I think of occasions to remember people, places, and events that have been largely forgotten over the previous year. For me, however, not a day has gone by when I did not think of the World Trade Center and the thousands of lives lost in its rubble, just four blocks from my home. So maybe I'll use the anniversary as an excuse to try and think of something else for a day.
