Remembering

We all remember where we were when the news came in.  I was having one of those ‘heart to heart’ talks with my boss at the time.  Closed door.  Everyone was pacing outside (glass walls) & finally he just had to find out what was up.  The first message-“your brother is fine”  which drew more questions.  Then we got the rest of the news.  There was only 1 small tv in a closet to huddle around, so most of my news came later that evening.

So much time has passed that facts are getting distorted.  I actually heard a person on the radio yesterday say that after the attack, the President flew to Florida to read to school children.  I was in shock.  How could we forget so quickly?

So, take a minute today to remember.  Remember those who perished, those who still suffer, and those responsible.  Forgetting what happened is to tarnish the memory of those lost.

Be thankful.  Thankful for those in your life, thankful for your country, thankful for your faith, thankful for your talents, thankful for every day you’ve been given & will see on this planet.
