“We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail.”
May 9th: started Arrested Development and spent two hours bonding with the bestie up in Athens before we leave for the summer time!
Exact face and gesture every time!
As I sit here at 11:08 in my bed listening to the aftermath of the Twin Towers, and all of the thoughts and actions that people are going through all those eleven years ago…and I feel like I’m back in 7th grade again. Watching these towers get hit and hit again, hearing the same screams, the same papers, the same balls of fires falling to their death, and every year it seems to get harder and harder to handle because I keep growing and growing. I’m finally able to truly understand what was going through each person’s mind from that first hit to 3 months later when we finally had to start really digging.
People forget those feelings. They remember where they were, what they were doing, but most children did not understand those feelings because we didn’t really understand what happened. Yes, growing up in Georgia we do not know the significance of the World Trade Centers. We don’t know that 1000’s of people walking into those buildings, opened subway doors underneath, shoppers, drivers, all underneath those towers. The biggest thing I knew about the WTC was that “Kevin” stood on top of the viewing tower, or that it was used as a backdrop for several other movie scenes. Take it or leave it, that’s all I knew.
Americans have forgotten what 9/11 did to our BOOMING country. We were the best country before 9/11, and in 102 minutes, we became severely injured. Thousands of lives lost in just seconds thanks to Al qaeda, Let me make that VERY clear…AL QAEDA made this happen.
Today I stopped to pray at each of the times the planes hit, and when the towers fell. When I stopped for the second plane (on the side of the sidewalk), and I said my prayer a person laughed at me, and asked me, “Are stupid could you be to stop and pray at a sidewalk?” I proceeded to tell the person, “In case they forgot today was September 11th, and 11 years ago today a plane was hitting the South Tower at that very minute.” The person didn’t have a response to say to me so I told them to pray for those 3,000 people who died, and the millions of other Americans, including yourself, who were reminded that even the strongest of the strong can get knocked down just like that, but just like Former President Bush said on that day in history,
How I feel when I’m reading pharmacology
Definitely looked exactly like this! I couldn’t stop smiling!
Perfect way to keep the relationship going, and plus knowing someone like me, I’ll enjoy the checking stuff off part just as much as the “doing it” part!!!!
This was take of two people who weren’t supposed to be together. They were close in high school, but always had someone else. Then one went one way to school and the other the complete opposite way down South. Who would have ever thought that the random text one night here, or being excited about a Harry Potter or Hunger Games premiere would get them talking again just like time had been paused for 5 years. Both of their smiles gleam with joy and happiness, and I can’t wait to see what fun they do next.
