As Allan Jackson says, "Where were you when the world stopped turning?"
It's been 13 years, and much like D day, people still remember where they were on this day. You can't help but remember where you were when the twin towers came down, when the pentagon was attacked or when brave americans took down terrorists in a plane to stop them from killing even more people.
Yesterday I was listening to people talk about Matt Groening and Seth MacFarlane and their upcoming cross over episodes of Simpson's and Family Guy. The DJ was explaining how Seth was saved from 911 because he was so hung over that day he missed his flight, a flight that crashed into one of the towers.
But have we learned from that day? That's the biggest question I have.... and I don't mean about our defences or about are tactical plans in war. I mean have we learned anything that makes this world better?
I don't know but I know that day as scary as it was, as devastating as it was, was a day of learning if you looked for the positive lessons. Humans will put aside differences to band together to help people in need, in times of great need nothing matters but finding help to maintain human life, because LIFE is precious, life is what we should be working towards.
yeah I'm rambling I know, I do it often but it's usually those long winded ramblings that lead to some enlightened point.....
