Today (well, technically yesterday but hey, I’m still up) is the anniversary of 9/11. We all know that. I’m not sure if I’m thankful that I remember where I was and what I was doing on that day or not. I talked to someone today who made the comment that while she still thinks it’s terrible, it didn’t have the same impact on her as she was in 5th grade and didn’t really understand what was happening. It’s strange knowing what I know now and seeing the hatred and violence that is sparked from fear and lack of understanding. It’s more than a little sad. I am a religious person and it is painfully obvious that these are the tools used by Satan to upset God’s plan for his children. In and of itself, that’s not a problem. The problem is that we choose to let these tools to destroy ourselves and each other. Anyway, I think I am glad I remember it because it is a life moment I will never forget. What happened then and what it means to me, then and now.
Also, three great quotes today:
In the part of this universe that we know there is great injustice, and often the good suffer, and often the wicked prosper, and one hardly knows which of those is the more annoying.
- Bertrand Russell
A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men.
It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating.
- Oscar Wilde
In other news, 1) I got extensions. I LOVE them! Pictures to come soon! 2) My family went to see the traveling production of The Lion King tonight at the Capitol Theater. Freaking amazing show! And afterward, our friend Anthony (who plays a gazelle, hyena, grass, dancer, etc) took us on a backstage tour!!! Pictures to come of that too… They may or may not be contraband… :D
