Five days ago was my 7th blogiversary. I always forget when exactly but then at some point in September I think, “Oh right, isn’t my blogiversary sometime around now?” Just looked it up: the 6th of september 2014 is when I truly started this blogging journey and so far I have never regretted it. On to more!
Yesterday was another anniversary: Colin Firth’s 61st birthday. He’s turning into a silver fox. Many happy returns to him!
The most notable anniversay is the one today, the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the twin towers in New York City. Of course, I too remember where I was when they happened, visiting my parents for an afternoon during my maternity leave. My son was two months old…
… and I remember looking on in horror and being grateful that my baby was too young to understand the terror we were witnessing live on CNN. The fact that he needed care and attention and love helped to keep us somewhat grounded on what I remember as a very frightening and surreal day, even if we were a continent away. The effects of these attacks are still very much felt today, my children don’t know a world before 9/11.
May we one day all be wise enough in this world to find peace.
