For a moment, it didn't even register until I saw [livejournal.com profile] zinke's post, but... wow, it's been nine years. Nine whole years, and so much has changed and so much has remained the same.

Today, the sky is a perfect blue, the trees are still vividly green and full of leaves, and the sun seems to shine on everything... It's so beautiful to see so much life continuing and growing even out of the ashes of tragedy, and as [livejournal.com profile] zinke worded it so perfectly - it IS hopeful.
