I woke up this morning and the church bells wouldn’t stop ringing and it took a while before i realized that it was because today is September 11th. (I looked over at my clock and it was about ten minutes of nine.)

Later in the day, my parents e-mailed me about this. We live a block down the street from that and i got hit by a car (wholly my own fault) crossing the same street when i was in middle school.

My father was saying that when this was in the news one of the things he thought was about how one reason stuff like that gets on the news is because it’s so rare, whereas auto accidents are rather common and gee we haven’t had an auto fatality in a while.
