Monday, September 12

9/11.


yesterday i was thinking about that day and this present day and all of the things that have happened in that time. 

i can't imagine what it must have been like to have been there and to have lost someone; what it must be like to have lost someone in the conflicts that have followed that terrible day.

jose narosky said that "in war, there are no unwounded soldiers." i think that can be true for entire nations, as well. everyone in this country and even worldwide has been changed in some way by the events of september 11, 2001. 

i've always believed in america. i can't say that i know what things we need to change or how to change them (if i did, i would run for president). i do think that, collectively, we all need to be better people and make better choices. we need to take care of ourselves and our families, friends and neighbors. we need to be as united as we proclaim ourselves to be.

"america will never be destroyed from the outside. if we falter, and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." abraham lincoln


God bless the USA.
