PERSPECTIVE

I thought that it would be important to reflect back on the tragic day of September 11, 2001. Our President has told us to get on with our lives. However there are some things that will never change.Please take a moment to read and reflect.

 

Monday, Tuesday

On Monday, there were people fighting against praying in schools.
On Tuesday, you would have been hard pressed to find a school where
someone was not praying.

On Monday, there were people trying to separate each other by race,
sex, color, and creed.
On Tuesday, they were all holding hands.

On Monday, we thought that we were secure.
On Tuesday, we learned better.

On Monday, we were talking about heroes as being athletes.
On Tuesday, we relearned what hero meant.

On Monday, people went to work at the World Trade Centers as usual.
On Tuesday, they died.

On Monday, people were fighting the 10 commandments on government
property.
On Tuesday the same people, all said 'God help us all' while thinking
'Thou shall not kill.'

On Monday, people argued with their kids about picking up their room.
On Tuesday, the same people could not get home fast enough to hug their
kids.

On Monday, people picked up McDonalds for dinner.
On Tuesday, they stayed home.

On Monday, people were upset that their dry cleaning was not ready on
time.
On Tuesday, they were lining up to give blood for the dying.

On Monday, politicians argued about budget surpluses.
On Tuesday, grief stricken, they sang 'God Bless America.'

On Monday, we worried about the traffic and getting to work late.
On Tuesday, we worried about a plane crashing into our house or place of
business.

On Monday, we were irritated that our rebate checks had not arrived.
On Tuesday, we saw people celebrating people dying in the USA.

On Monday, some children had solid families.
On Tuesday, they were orphans.

On Monday, the president was going to Florida to read to children.
On Tuesday, he returned to Washington to protect our children.

On Monday, we emailed jokes.
On Tuesday, we did not.

It is sadly ironic how it takes horrific events to place things into
perspective, but it has. The lessons learned that week, the things we have
taken for granted, the things that have been forgotten or
overlooked, hopefully will never be forgotten again.
