9/11 again

Another year has gone by. Still the same feelings of uneasiness about our safety. Six years later and Osama Bin Laden is still sending videos, his organization is getting stronger, and our "war" is just a joke to most of the world.

Today is also my friend Dorothy's 40th birthday. How would you like to have 9/11 as your birthday? It reminds me of the fact that one of our neighbors' birthday is July 2nd...the anniversary of our fire. She often talks about how that day people were calling her to wish her happy birthday and she had to tell them about what had happened to one of her neighbors. Not that I'm comparing my situation to 9/11 but there are some similar elements.

All in all just not good rememberances of this day.

September isn't my favorite month by any means. Friday marks the 5th anniversary of grandpa's death... that's always a hard day for me. I can't believe it's been five years!

it is also ludacris and harry connick jr's bdays, if that helps. right on all counts, rita. i don't care what the govt is trying to say about bin laden being "impotent," i know they are covering their bums for not catching him and that anyone who has the power to compel people to fly planes into buildings is a threat until they and everyone they know are gone and dead.
