I Will Never Forget
As September 11 has been approaching I see on tv specials to watch, stories of families and ways to remember and honor those lost in the most horrible event in US History. I've watched a couple and as I watch I continue to have the same feeling as I did that morning. I couldn't believe what I was watching, I felt sick, I cried for those lost, I cursed at those responsible. And while feelings of anger want to take over me, today I just want to remember and pray for those lost and their families and for the wellbeing of our country.
I chose the picture of this bird because it has been visiting me a lot this summer. Sometimes I think it's my Mom sending me a message, or that it comes to protect me. But it also reminds me of someone I knew that passed away one year ago on this day. Or it could totally be nothing related to the reasons above and just likes sitting at this chair under the shade the eves provide. But all in all, seeing this bird it gives me a sense of feeling hopeful. And I choose to concentrate on that hope. Hope that our country some day will be united. Hope that someday the victims of 9/11 will not feel as much pain. Hope that those lost this day nine years ago and those that I have lost personally will forever rest in peace.
