Reflecting back…

It’s been over four weeks since I post anything. Yikes!!  I guess I needed the break and realized during the process that I was putting too much pressure on myself.  It’s OK not to be OK.  I don’t have to beat myself up if I don’t post daily.  Sometimes you need to take a step back, adjust the setting and see things with new eyes.

Today is a special day for all of us, it’s a day of remembrance and unity.  It’s sad that a tragedy has to occur for a Nation to come together.  11 years ago, I was in my office when I heard the news about the twin towers.  I ran into the conference room where some co workers were already watching the news.  We all stood in silence and horror as we watched the events unfold before our very eyes.  All I could think about was my family and friends who live in NY.  At that moment, all I could do was think the worst.  Minutes seemed like hours trying to call while the lines were busy.  I could not help but breathe a sigh of relief when I finally received news of my loved ones.  Everyone was doing OK.  My deepest and sincerest condolences for those who lost their loved ones during this senseless attack.

A day we will always remember. God bless all those who lost their lives and those they left behind who remember that day with great pain and sorrow. Let’s also take a moment to honor and remember those who have and continue to sacrifice their lives every moment to achieve peace and freedom for all.

Why can’t everyone just get along despite their political and religious views? Perhaps in a perfect world.

September 11, 2001 – I will never forget.

Peace & Love always… xox
