If I was going to blog on this day I realized it should be a post about post – September 11th, 2001. 10 years later. Many others, including the blogging community, were planning the same theme about this horrific day in the past.
But there really isn’t anything I can add to what everyone else would say on this day – whether from here in Pasadena or out on the Right coast in NYC. Nothing I could say better than someone who was there, someone who experienced suffering, death, & loss.
Therefore, I recommend you tune in to those “special reports” about the 10th anniversary of 9/11/2001. Here on the blogosphere and internet, on television, radio, or even in old fashioned newspapers. There’s plenty out there today. They can say it better, shorter & bitter-sweeter too.
Besides, I really don’t have any easy answers or anything to add about this very sad day in American History. There are no quick sound bites. Yeah, it would be easy for me to say, “Peace, Love & Understanding”, but those words/concepts carry such deep, intrinsic value. Heavy. One reason is they are in such short supply. Or another is they’re so difficult to achieve – be it with a stranger from another culture or a family member in your own house. The selfish heart & brain is ever vigilant working both in our corner and our opponents.
Not sure if I’m understandable. Hoping for more double rainbow days instead of hot, smelly, cloudy days of death & darkness. I’ll just leave you with a handful of questions for this day of remembrance & reflection:
What is your strongest memory of 9/11/2001?
How did 9/11 change you?
How do you think it has changed the nation?
What did you lose or gain because of 9/11?
