just some thoughts about (911)

i used to think of 911 as an emergency phone call. I don't even know if that is still the case, is it?

Jay's date of birth

 

9-11-1952

 

hmmm

I can remember where I was on my 49th birthday, also what I was doing.

In the same breathe a friend was asking me what I was going to do to celebrate my birthday and that he had just heard on the radio that a plane or planes had crashed into buildings in New York

I didn't want to believe him. I figured he'd gotten it wrong.

 

On my 50th birthday I flew to Houston Texas. I didn't have any 2nd thoughts about getting on the plane. In Houston we saw a news flash that potential terrorists had been stopped in Naples, and the airport in Ft. Myers was now in a no fly zone. Guess we wouldn't be going home soon.

 

When I was younger I used to wonder what it was like to have a birthday on Pearl Harbor Day. I don't know why I wondered I just did. Now I have some sense of what that's like.

 

Back to Houston. I was watching the TV and wondering if I was going to have to share my birthday with the attacks every year. The answer is quite obvious. And then either Mark Harmon, or God (it was God) slapped me in the back of the head and reminded me that there were many children who not longer had a parent or parents, and there were spouses missing spouses because of the attack.

hmmm

 

Much more important than my birthday

 

So today I'm asking for a birthday present.

 

Pray for those who lost loves ones in the attacks, and especially for the children who lost their parents.

 

well, those are my thoughts, some of them anyway

Jay,

Happy to say another pray for the children of 911. That was one of the first things I did this morning.

Jay, Happy Birthday!  My mother died on June 18th, my son was killed in a car accident on June 18th, yet we can still be glad and celebrate my grandson's birthday on June 18th.  Say a prayer for those who lost their lives on 9/11, and celebrate life!!
