Note from Boo: I generally try to be funny, witty or just random on my blog, today is not that day.
September 11th will always be a day that is covered in a shadow. For those of us who were lucky enough to only experience the horror from the sidelines, we too still feel a deep sadness. It’s a day of remembrance and pause.
No one knows when your time is up and that second-hand on your life stops moving. I don’t believe that anyone leaves for work and doesn’t expect to come home. I don’t believe we ever expect our loved ones to not come back to us.
Today is the anniversary when the world stopped and ended for innocents. Today is a reminder that life is precious.
Perhaps it is because we know deep down we only have so many minutes and we refuse to acknowledge the clock.
It’s too painful.
It’s too scary.
It’s as real as the sun rising in the east.
I left my home today fully expecting to return. I didn’t make sure everyone I love knows exactly how I feel about them. I didn’t hug HG one long last time for the day. I take my life for granted, and that is a damn dirty rotten shame.
Today gentle readers, enjoy the moments. Be grateful. Say thank you. Say I love you a million times. Snuggle. Forgive. Watch Pitch Perfect for the 100th time and text your friends “LOL”. Better yet, watch it with them. Just live.
