Do you remember where you were at? What you were doing when America was invaded on 9-11-01?
I was at our home readying my family for the day. The news was on, I came around the corner and dropped to me knees and cried. I was so many emotions at the same time. I sobbed… I do not remember much of the rest of my day. I remember some snippets here & there. I think the kids asked me what was wrong, maybe they went to school. I remember the images of the field and pentagon… I prayed.
It is my brother’s birthday! How do you celebrate your life on a day so many mourn? I do celebrate life amongst death… Happy Birthday Brother with great love I will celebrate!
Later, I found out that my dad had just finished a job there 3 days before. They were his friends that died. I will celebrate life amongst death.
Reflecting on this stirs up so much. I realize so much more needs to be done for true world peace and to know the importance of celebrating life amongst death.
