Counting My Blessings And Remembering 9/11


Once again, counting my blessings and wishing everyone multiple blessings as well.  

As we all remember the tragedy of 9/11/2001, I wanted to share this quote from William F. Knowland:


"If we as Americans show the same courage and common
sense that motivated the men who sat at Philadelphia and gave
us the Declaration of Independence and later the Constitution of
the United States, there is no domestic problem we cannot solve
and there is no foreign foe we need ever fear."

Good morning, Lisa... not a day many of us can or will forget. As a New Yorker, I still grieve for what was done to my city.

This is a good day to be thankful for all that we cherish and discount the things in life that really don't matter in the grand scheme of things.

It is a difficult day.....and we can never ever forget how much more difficult it is for the people who lost a loved one.

Lisa as I have mentioned on a few other blogs today it seems like it was yesterday I was standing in front of my TV set watching the 2nd plane fly into the second tower.  It did not seem real, but it was very real and words cannot express the feelings I felt that day.

On 911 I was at home working in my home office  and watched the Twin Towers come down live . . . . Even today it was challenging to watch the event on TV.

Good luck and success.

It is a very good time to count our blessings.

Every day of good health is a very special blessing.

Hi Lisa,

Thank you for sharing this.  We live close enough that we can see the lights in the sky that they still put up in what were the footprints of the 2 towers.  15 years and it still is painful.
