The most prominent question of the last 10 years has been, where were you on September 11? The events of September 11 has impacted the entire world. I remember vividly as a teenage standing in a Canadian store seeing the second plane flying into the tower. I thought that it was a movie. So, i asked the cashier the name of the movie. He looked at me solemnly. It was then someone in the store responded that it was not a movie. It was real. Immediately, i was sick in my stomach.
The world changed that day. Whether we like to admit it or not, we started to fear anything unfamiliar. We started to search people's faces for any sign of deceit. We started to wonder could he, she, they or them be carrying a bomb. The innocence of the 90's were over. The world was now a place to be feared. The world became hard, callous and uncaring. This is the legacy of 9-11. As i type tears are filling my eyes. Yet, unlike so many of you, i was not affected by the lost of a love one.
I cannot begin to imagine how those who we directly affected felt throughout those long years. My heart goes out to you.
Now, the question will be: where were you on May 1, 2011?
My Positive Thought for you Today is:
“Remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, ALWAYS.”
Mahatma Gandhi quotes
