It seems fitting that today is gray, drizzly and cold outside. That type of weather sends me into a deep tailspin of either introspection or recollection. Today it's the latter.
Today I'm remembering the devastation of 7 years ago. The lives that were lost. The countrywide anguish. The power and ability of tragedy to unify a people. Which is especially important right now as the political arena seems to be creating an ever widening gulf between people.
It reminds me to be a little kinder. Slower to anger. More patient and open minded with everyone around me. The time we have is precious, not a second of which should be wasted.
