putting the 'personal' in website
putting the "personal" in website
Not to beat a dead horse, but anyone who construes anything I write about September 11 as flag-waving, jingoistic or overly patriotic has not been reading this website very long.
Today's post and any posts regarding that day that follow it are not meant as a "one nation come together" thing.
I, for one, am not happy with some turn of events in the past year. I am not happy with the current policital situation. I am not happy with the masses of organzations, individuals and elected officials who want to turn the day into a political rally or national holiday.
I just want to pay homage to those who lost their lives.
I just want to show people a glimpse of those who I knew who died that day.
I just want say what has been in my heart and on my mind since that day.
This is not about America, this is about me.
It's not about patriotism, it's about mourning.
I don't need a memorial service to remind me of that day. I don't need a commercial-filled special program on the television. I don't need a specially written song, a poem, a movie, a reenactment, a sculpture, a newscaster, a baseball player, a head of state or a website to remind me.
I certainly do not need a commemorative coin or plaque or CD to help keep the day in my memory.
I am going to spend that day far away from any television or radio or newspaper. I don't need the media telling me how or where to mourn or grieve.
For those of you who thought that's what the previous two posts were about, you are mistaken.
This is my website and it's all about me. Nothing more, nothing less. Me.
