Nineteen years ago today the United States was attacked by terrorists, making it the most deadly attack on our country. I remember exactly where I was when I got the news… what I was wearing, and the exact thoughts that went through my mind as I turned on the TV and sat there paralyzed at what I was seeing unfold. For the next week I don’t think the TV went off… I just couldn’t grasp what I was seeing. It was so surreal and it still is today. This morning I woke up and turned on the news which was flooded with old footage and coverage from that terrible day. It brought everything back, like it was just yesterday. It’s hard to explain the feelings that we have about things like this and I’ve noticed over the years that people don’t talk in detail about tragedy the way they used to. Maybe that’s just my perception of it but I’m almost grateful not to be drawn into a long discussion about these things. And after seeing the footage this morning, it’s still so raw, even after all these years. ~ One of the things I also feel is gratitude. Gratitude to be living in a country that has so much opportunity for everyone. I’m also grateful that I’ve been able to travel the way I have, seeing other countries and places. Meeting all kinds of people and realizing we all want the same things… peace, happiness, health, freedom. We want to take care of our families, enjoy our friends, have options about how we move forward in our lives, in every area, and have the confidence that we can make those choices for ourselves. And on this day freedom and security means more than ever. We have to remember where we came from and how far we have yet to go. ~ Thanks for your ear on this today. I appreciate all of you so much.
