SEPT 12 2008

7 years since that horrible day and it seems that much if not all of what we have experienced has been strongly forgotten.
I don't get it.
Don't get it at all.
Only 7 years.
And already people have moved on.
Is that the nature of the world?
Wanting so eagerly to forget?
Sept 12 was used by the media mostly for political gains in the ongoing heated election campaign. Each commentator was using Sept 11 either to bash the candidate they opposed or to use it to help the candidate they endorse.
7 years and still no memorial site in the place where nearly 3000 people lost their lives.

Sad.
Painful.
I will never forget Sept 11.
It was a moment that shaped my life forever.
Being the grandson of a person who was murdered in a terrorist attack I understand the pain of the grieving families.
I am with all of you.
I hope that the pain after 7 years is a little less.
It will never go away. I can attest to that from my own life.
But hopefully it doesn't sting as much as it did when it just happened.

I pray for all of your. You are and will always be in my heart and mind.
