9/11

The "Tribute in Light" memorial is in remembrance of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, in honor of the citizens who lost their lives in the World Trade Center attacks. The two towers of light are composed of two banks of high wattage spotlights that point straight up from a lot next to Ground Zero. This photo was taken from Liberty State Park, N.J., Sept. 11, the five-year anniversary of 9/11. (U.S. Air Force photo/Denise Gould)

Tomorrow marks 14 years of 9/11.

Disasters.

They are unwanted, unwelcome but inevitable.

Syria is happening and it’s heart breaking.

Every disaster,man-made or not, is crippling,and leads to death.

Death is the common denominator we share.

Others will face death the gruesome way,others will die peacefully.

But we will all end there too.

It’s an ending uncalled for,seldom acknowledged,often overlooked.

But it exists and inescapable.

For someone who lives and make a living saving lives but is often challenged with incapacity to prolong one.

It’s frustrating.

I have felt many,have seen many.

The world could fall apart, but I couldn’t,yet.

For as long as I’m alive.

I will cry for them, will pray for them, will volunteer for them.

Because we are humans,capable of anything.

But then again,we too are just humans.

Mortals that will end incapable.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Disasters happen,we never know when.

With as little as $10 of one time or recurring donation to Red cross, you will touch lives,you will never know who they are,but you know in your heart,you made a difference.

We don’t have to be millionaires to care or Angelina Jolie to share.

LADIES I challenge you,skip one shoe shopping this month.

Donate here: Red Cross

  1. It’s hard to understand how often history repeats itself. We study it, yet we repeat the mistakes of the past, which lead to horrible atrocities in the future. But also, we still don’t understand that we are all human beings who all deserve to be treated as you would want to be treated yourself. Syria is a reminder of this. We had a rally this weekend to call for refugees to come to our city. I wish everyone could feel safe and loved by their fellow man, but there are others out there in power who believe they have more right to freedom and happiness than the less fortunate. It breaks my heart. The best feeling is helping another. It’s more powerful than anything else because it feeds the soul. Sorry for the long rant. But thanks for sharing this important reminder.

    What a thoughtful and beautifully written post. You are so right about disasters, whether they are man-made or not there are so many dangers in our society, and so many people suffering. I did go to Red cross after reading this. I tend to give annually but I should donate more frequently. , I wish I could volunteer but I am unable to because I am immune suppressed.
    Kisses Bing.

  14. Great post and thank you for remembering. I knew someone that died there. He was one of four brothers and I knew him from a local punk rock club we all use to go to. Yes I always try to donate to a couple of charities a year.
