Ten years ago, i think it was about 730 am time or so (im in central time an hour behind eastern time) and i was watching the morning news, getting ready to head off to work for a day cutting grass. The news came on and showed the world trade center tower on fire. i called my boss and asked him if he was watching it. shortly thereafter, i saw the second plane hit. it was sickening. i knew that we were under attack. then the other horrible events happened.
I remember that day and the days and weeks that followed, how everyone seemed to "come together" in a way. People were driving more polite, everyone had kind words. flags were flying everywhere. people were just thankful to be alive and carrying on with their lives. I think alot of that was lost the last 10 years, let alone all those people that lost their lives in horrible ways that day.
I don't want to turn this into anything religious or political. I happen to believe myself, and just want to remind people to be thankful for everything you have. if you have bills paid, a car, a job, a roof over your head, food in your mouth, you're doing alot better than alot of people. and certainly better than the people that didn't know they were dying that day.
just a thought
