Today is September 11, 2011

Helvetica .... just for fun ..... clean and simple ....

Today is an exhausting day. Exhausting on an emotional level. Exhausting on a physical level for all the many across the nation participating in any (sometimes several) of the many remembrances. 

"Courage lies in every man's heart" There comes a time when we each may be called upon to use the courage that may lie dormant within us .... [loosely from Vice President Joe Biden]

Ten years ago I was happily, hopefully beginning a new chapter in my life. The destruction of the twin towers along with the attack on the Pentagon, and the downing of Flight 93, instantly, changed my expectations for the future. My vision of a secure future for my children seemed naive. Peace at home no longer could be taken for granted. We were (and are) vulnerable in the same way as other countries around the world.

We have always been vulnerable. Life seemed so much easier before we came to recognize this truth. Sometimes .... Ignorance Really is Bliss ....
