History Shouldn’t Fade

Posted by mcm0704 on September 11, 2020 |

  One thing I don’t want to do in the midst of the current dismal state of our society is let the memory of that horrible day on September 11, 2001 get lost in the barrage of all the depressing news around us. Not that we need another bleak something to focus on, but it […]

Remembering 9/11

Posted by mcm0704 on September 11, 2019 |

Forgetting is not an option Here is an article from News 12 in New Jersey, outlining how some people are commemorating 9/11.  Every year I play this YouTube video of Alan Jackson singing “Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning and shed a few tears. Like many other people, I can clearly remember that […]

9/11 Tribute

Posted by mcm0704 on September 11, 2015 |

September 11, 2001– a day that changed so many lives. Every anniversary of that horrible day, I think of this song “Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?” by Alan Jackson. I go to YouTube and listen with tears in my eyes and goosebumps on my arms. Jackson wrote the song in October of […]

Remembering 9/11

Posted by mcm0704 on September 11, 2014 |

  With the passing of time, the urgency we all felt that awful September day seems to have waned somewhat. Now we are more focused on the inconveniences of air travel that event spawned than on what we as a nation and a people experienced in the first weeks and months following the terrorist attacks. […]

Special Wednesday’s Guest

Posted by mcm0704 on September 10, 2014 |

On this, the eve of remembering 9/11, I thought it appropriate to have a special guest today, Major Heather Penny. I read about this amazing woman last Sunday in Parade Magazine. In 2001 she was an F-16 pilot with the 121st Fighter Squadron of the D.C. Air National Guard at Andrews Air Force Base in […]

Remembering 9/11

To some people it might seem like all we do is open wounds to have them bleed again by remembering these horrific events. It’s better to just pack it all away and forget about it and get on with the healing. That is the same approach that many take to the grieving process in general. […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

In Texas the speed limit is going to be raised to 75mph on interstate highways. That means that all the drivers who currently go 80 to 90 in the 70mph zone will now feel free to bump that up by another ten. And this is good for us, how? Here are some facts from a […]

Very few people in the world were not touched by the events of 9/11, some more deeply than others. For those of us in the United States we will probably never forget where we were that morning and what we were doing. I was getting ready for work, putting the finishing touches on my makeup […]

Let us not Forget

Posted by mcm0704 on September 11, 2009 |

Sometimes as we are distanced from tragedy the memories dim somewhat. That’s a normal human reaction, a way of dealing with pain and grief. Now, nine years after that horrible day in September when we saw planes crash into buildings and thousands of people die, the images are not as crisp in my mind as […]
