9/11

9/11

There are a lot of ways we can look at it.

We can lament the first responders that lost their lives, who rushed to their doom to save others.
Or we can celebrate the fact that we had so many heroes within our midst.

We can mourn the attack that hurt so many, so deeply, in an attempt to break our spirit.
Or we can choose to celebrate the fact that we have survived with our spirit so very much intact.

We can agonize over the very high cost of what followed, in terms of gold and more importantly, lives.
Or we can take comfort that so many were willing to place themselves between us and danger, whether you agree with how it was done or not.

We can discuss this day in the terms of blame, politics, and name calling.
Or we can hit the people that do so with a stick.

Leave the bickering for another day.

Today is a day to honor what was lost, and take solace in what it proved we have.

    I regret that we can’t all drink beer from Osama’s skull.

    Because, you know, he’s fish poop now.

    I don’t think a human skull would be good for drinking out of anyways. Too many holes.

    I figure the best thing we can do in regards to the dear departed Osama Bin Laden is to raise a drink to the living, another to the dead, and speak of OBL in particular only as historical trivia, and let him steer our lives and emotions no further.

    Honor and remember the 343 firefighters that made the ultimate sacrifice that day. They are gone but never forgotten. Their memory makes me proud to be a Volunteer Firefighter.
