My 9/11

I grew up that day; we all did.   The two towers of strength collapsed in what seemed like seconds. We all watched in awe, fascination, disbelief and then horror.  In that instant our world changed forever.  I wanted to wrap my arms around my children and never let them go. I ran out and bought them cell phones.  I sat, fixated on the televsion; afraid to watch but not wanting to miss anything.  The heroic stories that we all know about now were in the process of happening.  People were reaching out to their loved ones for the last time; some never got the chance. 

I remember that day like it was yesterday and I will never forget.

    It is good to remember “like it was yesterday”. When we do – all the deepening knowings of our hearts that came from that horror, some of which led to profound changes in our lives, they become rekindled too. AND this is what we may cling to – Catastrophic loss of profound proportions brings a sweetness to life that may otherwise be missed. Blessings and peace to all who suffer still, may our lives be enriched by your ability to go on and thrive not despite what has happened but because of it.

    thanks amy for the gift of this insight. xox z

    You are so right, Beth. Without the sadness we would never be able to appreciate the blessings.
