This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
about 9/11, as were most people. Nineteen years ago, seems so long ago, yet some of those same feelings came alive. I remember feeling guilty because I was safe and they weren’t. I felt helpless because I saw anguish, but there was nothing I could do. I felt gratitude for fire fighters and first responders. I felt grief for people I didn’t know. As devastating as it was, our country stood together. It wasn’t about politics or race. It was about the loss of our fellow Americans. Our country mourned together. It felt good to be “One Nation Under God” at such a problematic time.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
“Nothing is miserable unless you think it so; and on the other hand, nothing brings happiness unless you are content with it.”
( Boethius, The Consolation of Philosophy)

YOU KNOW YOU’RE GETTING OLD WHEN…
You still feel young on the inside, but it doesn’t show on the outside.
You’ve done it all, heard it all, but just can’t remember it all.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
                 3 Stages of Life

Teen Age: Have Time + Energy…But No Money.
Working Age: Have Money + Energy…But No Time.
Old Age: Have Time+ Money…But No Energy.

BRIGHT SIDE OF GETTING OLD
You don’t have to be concerned about dying young.
There’s not as much peer pressure.

BE SAFE AT HOME
(Taken from Easy Does It)
Use reflection tape on the end of outside steps to make them easy to see.  Or you can use white paint.
Make use of lighting systems designed to minimize shadowy corners. Motion-sensitive lighting along corridors and around corners allows you to see where you’re going at any hour of the day or night.

    I agree 100% with you, Theresa, about our country on 9/11 and after. Look where it is are nineteen years later. The cohesiveness is being pulled away at the seams. It needs to be restored. I’m being optimistic that we will survive. The country has done it before and it will do it again.

    On 9/11 I was in the bathroom listening to the TV while getting ready to drive to my travel teaching job in West LA. I was ever so thankful that I was not tour directing. When I took tours to the East Coast, we stayed at the Marriott just down the street for the World Trade Center. I took a few of my passengers on our free morning to the Trade Center and took them up to Windows on the World Restaurant at the top. We enjoyed commanding views and then bought discounted theater tickets. I think that hotel never opened due to extensive damage.

    There is a reason the country is torn apart and it is the same reason the over two hundred thousand Americans are dead. VOTE!
