9-11. yay.

I'll keep this brief.
I was listening to some radio show with new age music on NPR (no, we don't much care which) and the host was talking about reflecting back on 9-11.

"We're all more angry and anxious than we were before 9-11"

Then he went on to "the lessons we had hoped we had learned"

Like how life is precious. How the little things that bug you really don't matter in the Big Picture. How we need to appreciate what is here and now. Who is with us here and now. Live in the here and now. Because tomorrow is not guaranteed to anyone.

That day when complete strangers reached out to each other and gave comfort because suddenly we were all connected. All the same. Use my cellphone. I'll give you a ride. I'll sit with you. All the barriers were down for a little while. Skin color. Money. Job. Religion. Gender. Orientation. Language. All that crap was GONE. What do you need? How can I help?

We knew who to blame. It wasn't a country. It wasn't a religion. It was a couple guys.

So that's what I'm going to try to remember today. The lessons of 9-11.

Be a little more excellent to each other. Because we've seen that we can.

  • Friday

    Somebody say "Friday?"

    This is how you DO it "How will I find you at the party?" "I'll be the only one on the stairs. Just me." Drama QUEEN. All she needs is police…

  • Oh crumbs!

    What's your Halloween costume? I'm going as a cake!
