Today is 9/11

        Today is 9/11.  Regardless of race, color, creed, religion, political party or anything else, there ain’t no way for all of us to be anything but sad.  I can not imagine how those families still hurt.

        I’m a yak at times, but I am gonna observe a moment of silence for everyone who was touched by the tragedy.  By definition, I think it is all of us, ’cause nothing will ever be the same, but it more true for those families than anyone.

    You are so right.

    9/11 was a defining moment in history. It’s this generation’s “I remember when…” like the assassination of JFK was mine.

    Even though I wasn’t personally touched by the loss, I knew people who knew people who knew people who were. One is a friend of mine from Colorado who was the neighbor of the pilot of Flight 93. The other was a broker in NJ who used to work in the Towers and still knew a lot of the traders there. I guess in that way, we’re all linked together.

    Ms. Pande,

    A sad day indeed. Yep, we are all linked, no doubt.

    My phone rang off the hook that day. I was a few years gone from having worked for our state Emergency Management agency. I called my friends at FEMA and tried to get the best information I could, but the most touching moment came when my then 6-year-old daughter asked me if there were babies on those airplanes.
    “Yes, honey, I’m sure there were,” I told her.
    “Were their mommies and daddies there, too?” she asked with great concern.
    “I’m certain they were, hon,” I said, trying to reassure her.
    “Then God took them all to heaven at the same time,” she said, and she seemed relieved.
    I nodded.
    “Good,” she said. “Then the babies don’t have to be afraid.”
    I don’t know why that gave me such relief, but it did.

    Peace to you, my blog friend.

    It never will be the same. I just wish we could learn something positive from it; I’m saddened and embarrassed by how little we’ve been able to change as a result of this shared experience.

    It is indeed sad. If humans had put as much effort into kindness as killing…. who knows.
