Wide EyesMy 7-year-old son came into the living room this morning, and saw Brian Williams and his gas mask on the Today Show. He stopped in his tracks at the top of the stairs, eyes wide. A thousand thoughts went through my brain..."Well, C., he's showing what it's like to put on a gas mask"...."It's just a joke"...."He's..he's..."
But words escaped me. He just asked us to turn it to Nickelodean.
He was 5-1/2 and one month into kindergarten on 9/11 (my brother's birthday, incidentally). Yesterday was my wife's birthday. C. just turned 7 last month.
Where am I going with this? Nowhere. Just that I want this to be over.
