Misty Morning II

What can I say today that someone else isn't already saying more eloquently?


Last year, I did a ranting, raving post. And I have to say that I don't feel much differently today than I did last year.


All I can say is I Remember.

And I'm sure you do too.

Sometimes, I feel that is the best that we can do.
Because there are not always clear cut solutions and answers.
And the mentality that people have of
How could that happen here?
Bothers me on so many levels.

All I know is that today I will have a hard time playing silly games and painting with my little preschoolers.
I'll have a hard time looking at them and knowing that the world as it was is so completely changed from the days before towers fell and planes crashed, to the now.
It's with a heavier heart and a heavier mind.
I'll look at these children who are so pure in their ignorance
and all I can do
is Hope.

I remember too.

Sometimes it's all you can do not to look ahead. I hope we hand them a world they're proud to inherit.

We will always remember, that's the difficulty of it all.

I still remember being heavily pregnant with The Boy when it happened and holding my hands over my stomach all day, as though I could protect him from what I was watching.

I couldn't agree with you more. I remember too---and I hope that others will not only still remember--but also open their eyes.
