Historical Memory

Yesterday (September 10) we were going through the homework planners my students received for class. One of them asked, "It says tomorrow that it's Patriot Day. What's that?"

"I don't know," I responded. "Some holiday."

"Do we get it off school?!"

I looked at the date just now. OH RIGHT, THAT'S WHAT PATRIOT DAY IS. These kids were born in 2000 and 2001. They don't remember that shit. That's weird.
