The days after 9/11 left many feeling overwhelmed and empty at the the same time. Constant re-play. A thousand variations on the same conversation. Thanks to our friends, the Macmillan’s, we were able to get away to a quiet place. Allenwood Beach is a beautiful stretch just outside an endless summer honky tonk, Wasaga. Some of our best moments as a couple and as a family have been on that shore.
We thought it the perfect place to collect our thoughts, maybe create a little distance. While walking the beach we came across this tribute. A little while later we listened to local news about someone from Collingwood, a nearby town, who had lost his life in New York.
Two years later, the violence continues. Some call it prevention, others, retribution. None feel safer.
