Nine Years

Posted By on September 11, 2010 at 12:13 pm

There are remembrances of that awful day nine years ago all over the blogosphere today, as well there should be. Michelle Malkin has a 9/11 collection that deserves to be seen, but if you read only one recollection of that day, you might want to make it Allapundit’s Twitter posts from last year, collected by TV’s Andy Levy.

There are memorial events going on all day today. If nothing else, turn on your TV.

Me… I’ll be starting work in a couple of hours. By the middle of the afternoon I expect I’ll be hip-deep in a routing protocol problem, or perhaps diagnosing a router crash, or helping redesign someone’s network traffic flow. Or, just possibly, I’ll be involved in someone’s disaster recovery testing.

And maybe that’s a small glimmer of a reflection of a good side of this time and place in history. The country took a severe body blow, and yet we carry on as we have to, as Americans always have.

    Right on the nose Russ!
    While to day of 9/11/2001 is a day not to be forgotten, we must learn from the terrible experience of it. I think, we as Americans – and the world – has done just that. We have learned that we are not as safe and secure as we once were. We have learned about other nations in the world many of us were ignorant about.
    We have also learned about those that gave, and keep giving, their lives for us – you, me, and our families and friends, and all of the other American people – so that we can have the freedoms that we hold so near and dear to our hearts and lives today.
    We have also learned that – as cold and as unsensitive as it may sound life goes on. Differently – yes! But it goes on. It must!
    We, particulary me, have learned that we don’t know what our future holds for us. We must live each day as if it is the last. As if God is calling us home in the next minute. I have learned thta my relationship with the Lord is more important to me today, than it was a few years ago. I can say with confidence, that I am ready to meet Him and to live forever with Him!
    If September 11, 2001 has done anything good, it has done that for me – for which I am very thankful!
