Paying Tribute

I have decided that the best way to pay tribute today, the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, is to go about my usual business. Yes, I will remember those lost, but living our lives is the best way, in my opinion, to mark this date. Those who took so many lives that day did so with the intent of bringing us down, of taking away our sense of security, of disrupting our normal lives. What better way to keep that from happening than to move on from that point, enjoying each and every day since, giving to our fellow man and just plain LIVING?

We will never forget, and hopefully what happened showed all of us how quickly this life can be taken away. Hopefully we learned to hold each day precious and to let those around us know how much we really care about them.

Yep, just plain pruning and weeding and ordinary garden stuff here today -- and thankful to have a peaceful day.

I felt like I needed to honor the ones who rushed into the buildings to rescue, by watching a lot of videos etc....They are heroes. I did go see my dad also on 9-11 to spend time with him
