Remembering

God has a good sense of humor, doesn’t she?  (See what I did there?  Gonna get everyone all fired up).  Last week, I shared that my biggest wish for this school year was to sleep.

And sleep I did.  For about 3 days straight.  Pneumonia, folks.  I don’t recommend it.  God is hilarious.

Okay, enough about me.

Do you remember where you were on 9/11?  I was working at a condo reservation company called Vacation Values, sitting at my desk, when one of my coworkers came in and told us what was happening.  She heard it on the radio on her way in to work.  I didn’t believe her.  I went to my dad’s office, which was one floor below ours.  He had a TV in his conference room.  I hoped I would see that it wasn’t true.  I wish I didn’t turn it on and watch, but I did.  Didn’t we all?  It was horrifying seeing people, on live TV, jumping from the towers to their deaths.  I will never forget that.

The days and weeks following were sad and confusing, but it was the only time I felt like everyone in our country was together.  No one was fighting about this.  Everyone was helping, praying, caring.

Let’s remember that.  We all had our differences, but somehow we managed to come together.

I don’t have much else to say about that, but I thought this video was a fantastic way to remember the people who came together, in the midst of the confusion, when no one even knew what was happening yet, and helped.  Because that’s what they had to do.

 

 

Going to get some more shut-eye now.  Take care everyone, and remember to remember.
