    1. Check the date.
      But, seriously, nobody knew at the time that the world would turn upside down.

  3. I think people missed the date you put up. The cat is astute though, not the same indeed

    1. They did, but that's okay. When I look at blogs I quite often just blow through. No worries. In fact, I think it very aptly describes how the (Western) world felt on September 10th. I know I felt fat, dumb, and happy.

  4. The few days before and the few days after 9/11 always cause me to reflect. Not just on that day but on what's going on now.

    Never Forget!

    1. I know I'm overstating, but I think a lot of innocence was lost that day. Many thousands of people died then and in the 12 years which followed.
      Which by no means forgets the millions who died in the years prior.
      Oh, man......

  6. my middle school handled the situation quite well. They told us what happened, but then told us we couldn't watch the news. Classy folks

    1. Absolutely classy. Kids didn't need to see that. They'll have more than their share of horror in their lives.

  7. This actually crossed my mind this morning Al. I was just thinking how surreal it was that very little was being said about the fact it was the 12 year anniversary. It's funny (not in a humorous way in the slightest) that this incredible tragedy happened and I can remember it, yet it was as long as 12 years ago. Nothing was going to be the same again for sure, if they wanted to destroy us then they should have left us and let us fight it out amongst ourselves, the minute they attacked that tower they already had lost.

    1. I really get melancholy this time of year. Tomorrow, I'll post the story of where i was (a repost, but I think important).

  8. Thanks for the reminder, Al. And we're on pins and needles about a possible WWIII. Scary times. On a positive note, it's a wonderful photo.

    1. I honestly believe that connecting the dots will lead from the present crisis to September 11th and on into thousands of years of human history.
      Very, very sad.

  9. The date says it all. How eerie to see this calm before the storm.

    1. The eeriness continued for a few days afterward, as my post tomorrow will describe. It's a repost, but I felt it was an important repost.

  10. I have a mailbox on the route that when opened, inside the lid reads 9-11 Never Forget!

    I see it everyday. And now I can't.

    1. A lot of bad has happened since then. Still I can't forget the day I lost two of my friends. And thousands more lost their friends or family.

    2. I mean no disrespect. Honest. The mail box is just a daily reminder...

      Delete
    3. Oh, by no means did I think you meant any disrespect.

  11. I remember this day. The day that my husband started his new job at Maytag- which is no longer around. The next day, or today, was weird. I didn't hear about it til hours later when a friend came to pick my daughter up for pre-K.

    1. As I've written, I was in Iceland at the time. Unsettling, unnerving.

  12. Very profound, Al. You clearly have hidden depth.

    1. I try to be deep, but I have a shallow mind.

  13. Just thinking about all of the kids who had to grow up without a parent, and the parents who lost a child is heartrending.
