Having ideas and knowing what to write are two entirely different things. I have a list of ideas for potential blog topics longer than I care to tell. Funnily enough, most of what I write does not come off of that running list.
Today is one of those days. I feel uninspired and I don’t quite know what to write. Maybe that’s because what needed to be written has already been articulated.
The following is an email sent out from a respected leader. The message is succinct, poignant and worthy of reflection.
Subject: September 11th
Seven years ago I was flying to Afghanistan when I noticed our charter flight was flying right by New York City. At night, Manhattan was clearly visible with all its lights. My thoughts turned to all those who perished there, simply because they lived the American way of life. How could anyone hate us so much?
My children have never known a time when we had Peace. Sadly, nearly half a generation has gone by and it appears things have not changed. Yet another generation has been raised to hate us and want nothing more than to destroy our way of life.
Today as we remember, let us never forget. Also, Thank You for all you do to train those who will go out and save those who fight for us, each and every day.
