Remembering

Posted on: September 11, 2012

We all mourn, celebrate & come to terms with things in our own way.  Like anyone living in the United States in 2001, I remember quite vividly where I was 11 years ago today.  It was a dark and horrible day.  For those of you who lost loved ones, served as first responders, and were directly affected, I extend my deepest condolences to you.

Our children can be a great example to us.  They don’t worry about the mistakes they made yesterday, and they aren’t concerned about what happens tomorrow.  They simply live and appreciate what’s in front of them right now.  It it easy for us as adults?  No, certainly not.  In my own way, I try to use  9/11 to appreciate those who are currently serving now.  It doesn’t mean we forget, but we must move forward.  A simple smile and a thank you go a long way for those who currently protect and serve us.  Spend time volunteering, giving your talents in some way and lending a hand to others who may not be as fortunate as you.  I try to appreciate the small things in life that I have had the opportunity to see.  Even the painful lessons are the ones that sometimes bring great joy and building blocks for future successes later down the road.  Every day has something to teach us.  At our house, we are going to use our pain, frustration, anger, disappointment and sadness to make the world around us a little bit better.  Blessings to you and your families on this day of remembrance.
