When a tragedy occurs – natural disasters, 9/11 – my reaction is to soak up the media coverage. I need to understand what happened – the how and the why. Not everybody feels that way; some people prefer to stay as detached as possible.
This photo was taken at my latest high school reunion. The women in the photo are not my sisters; I have a sister. They’re my friends – some closer than others, to be sure – but they’re my friends. And I don’t take that designation lightly (no matter how Facebook defines it).
