Vacation. All I Ever Wanted

Standard

  
Hanging out with my favorite guy in The Big Apple. Having a blast. 

I want to talk about the 9/11 memorial. It is hauntingly beautiful. It was hard to keep my composure as I relived the fear and horror of my country under attack. 

My son was still a toddler, and he has no idea what the world was like before. We went from being a sheltered nation to a nation on the same level as the rest of the world. We are not immune. 

  Watching my son viewing the world from the top of The Freedom Tower, I realized I have a responsibility to do every thing in my power to make this world better for him. I don’t believe I can change the whole world however I can be kinder and more responsible to those around me. Just think, what if we all made that promise? What if we made it our mission in life to be kind? To help others? To be inclusive instead of exclusive? 

I want the world to be a gentle place for my boy. I know that sounds naive and simple. I just think it would be nice.

    I think it’s a lovely idea. My son was in elementary school that day…my daughter not even a glimmer in my eye yet. I’m with you…I want my kids to have a world they can grow and thrive in.

    • It’s amazing when I think about it. Not even 15 years ago- and- then I think about that… 15 years. It seems like yesterday.

      We still have not figured out how to treat others.
