ONE SEPTEMBER MORNING...
...it was just another day...for a while...
-
I've never been an early riser. Sorry, that's just not built into my Genetic Code. As I recall, it was my Day Off. A beautiful day, not a cloud in sight where I used to live in North Idaho. And what better way to start off the day than to go out and get Breakfast! I got to the restaurant at about 11:30am (told you I'm not an early riser...) and gave the waitress my order. As I sat in the booth, the "climate", the "feel", the "atmosphere", the "aura" or whatever you want to call it was just Wrong Somehow.
-
I hadn't listened to the knews on my way to breakfast, so I didn't know anything of any consequence had occurred. I was a 'regular' at that restaurant, and so quite a few people I knew were sitting around in there, talking in hushed tones, and I knew/felt something had 'happened', and that "that something" couldn't be good...I asked aloud, "Did Something Take Place that I should Know About?" When I found out, I was shocked, like the rest of the nation...

How Awful. Another day that forever will live in infamy. All these years later, I still don't know how to sum it all up, except to say that it's a day we'll never forget. And it's a day we can't afford to forget. We were all affected by it, but to those whose lives were lost, and to those who lost family and friends on 9/11, I wish you all the best, and you're in my thoughts and prayers.

Obviously, all of those responsible Must Answer For Their Crimes. But more than anything, I really hope our country can 'get it together' enough to somehow provide all the security necessary to make sure something like this Never Happens Again.

our minds were running in the same light.... as this is what I wrote about today as well... We will all remember where we found out what happen, just like the day that Kennedy got killed.

That's for sure, Cis...I can remember where I was at during both Kennedy assassinations; I'll never forget John Lennon's assassination, or what happened at the Twin Towers. We knew long ago that the world's a crazy place, and it's only getting crazier...

Hi, Marmie; didn't see your latest reply until this late date. I think the minute we all become desensitized to disaster is when we'll all really be in trouble. I know your country has had its share of problems too. All of this is probably a by-product of having more and more people on the planet all the time, and the rudeness of those who get into each others' faces, and when that's done in the name of religion, that's twice as bad. Oh well...
