September 11th used to be a good day. The birthday of one of my best childhood friends. But ten years ago, everyone will remember that day, not for her day of birth, but for other reasons.
I've gone back & forth for a couple of days regarding what, if any, kind of post I would submit today. I knew that there would be a slew of other bloggers doing 9-11 posts and didn't want to clog up the blogosphere with just another post about the Twin Towers. Not that I want to disrespect those who gave their lives to help others, nor to forget those who needlessly died that horrific day ten years ago, but I'm not sure I could actually say anything useful or even anything that hasn't already been said.
But here I am, blogging about it anyhow.
For those of you who may have lost friends or family ten years ago, I wish you the best in healing your families, your hearts and your minds.
Don't forget the atrocities that were committed that day. But also don't forget the atrocities that our own government has committed (and continues to commit) in the name of that fateful day. It is a disgrace to those that were murdered and those that sacrificed their lives so that others could live.
And although I'm not sure if you read this blog or not........"Happy Birthday Jaime!" I still think of today as YOUR day!
