I opened up face book just now and started crying with all the 9/11 remembrances. Of the many days that have lived in infamy, D Day, Gettysburg, Pearl Harbor, and others, I was alive when this one happened which makes it more personal to me. We are healing as a country. The process is slow but we will "get there". Let us just be mindful when we go "get there" that this is a solemn day and the lives of the dead are to remembered, NOT used as an excuse for a party.
A friend just said that we don't have barbecues on Pearl Harbor Day so hopefully we will not on 9/11. How many of us watched that day. Not wanting to see the horrors unfold but not being able to take our eyes off of the television. I stayed home from work that day. Thank you Sophia for the image.
