Prelude to Silence

September: the ninth month of the year, made up of 30 days.

Eleven: a number after ten and before twelve.

Tomorrow, each of us will choose how we remember 9/11; some in silence, some with written words, and some with tears. Then there will be those that will raise their voices, some that will speak the words, and some will remember, with smiles, those memories prior to.

How we remember is not what is important…it is the fact that WE DO REMEMBER!

I, for one, will be sure
…to tell my son and family members how much I love them
…smile at each person I see and mean it
…I will say a prayer for those that perished on that day and for those that were left alone
…look at each American flag I see and each time truly remember what it stands for
…and yes, to each and every one of you, I’m sending a heartfelt hug for being whom and what you are individually and collectively.

So tomorrow, I will be silent but whatever you choose to do…REMEMBER…how fortunate we are!

“Live this day as if it will be your last. Remember that you will only find ''tomorrow'' on the calendars of fools. Forget yesterday's defeats and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, ''If I had my life to live over again. ''Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day! Beginning today treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.”

XXXOOO's to you on this, the eve of a sorrowful and horrific event. May we all, forever remember, the loss of innocence,a loss in sense of personal security, fate hath no boundries nor prejudice, and the "granteds" truely are not as we once believed.
May we all find the solice,peace and calm from within to73 share and spread throughout our "individual" world.. and the world as a whole...for we all are part and parcel.
May you and yours be one.
Heartfelt and silently heard..
I remain,
