The Most Remembered Date In History
Yes, more than Christmas, because that's only one religious groups Holiday.
Ditto for July 4, though that's a quasi religious day. Which day is Easter and Thanksgiving...you have to do the math. We are even aware of Ramadan, but Nine Eleven, once reserved for emergency calls, became a Wake Up Call.
I wanted to write something last night for this day, but thought, "No, I'll skip this obvious day for a daylog." (Which could be sung to the tune of "What a Day for a Daydream.") Of course, a horse's asp, I did not, and I hope what little $ense of humor I use will not be construed as disrespectful....just to keep a semi-personal node a wee bit more interesting.
I watched a PBS show on some of the survivors of the Twin Towers Tragedy, and got crazy mad. The fighting terror with Nuclear Terror is only an option of a twelve year-old, of which my wife reminded me.
People are scared, and angry, still (at different sides, as well.) As I look outside, the weather looks exactly like it did that day I was at the window service at my old job, the Post Office, and looked at the TV monitors with the blue skyline of NYC punctuated with ugly exclamation points of smoke. Not realizing until later with the "Oh's" of office personnel and others standing around watching the live coverage that a building had collapsed! It was only a day after my co-worker friend told me his renter had killed himself in his townhouse, and it was a year later that I found out that person was a beloved noder. I can never forget.
I have only one conclusion: There should be a lot more praying for peace --even for our enemies.
