Empire state of mind

I've heard several people say that they felt suffocated by the amount of media and news coverage there was for the 10th anniversary of 9-11.

I disagree.

During every other day of the year, it feels as though we don't talk about what happened. It's not as if we turn to a neighbor on the bus in the middle of April and ask them where they were and how they felt that day. Instead we've gone on with our daily routines and continue to live selfishly. We focus on trivial things. In a way, we've lost ourselves.

If for one day, the day, we can be transported back, I say yes. By all means. Show us the images. Replay the footage. Remind us.

Remind us that it's our responsibility to respect one another. To count our belssings. To say "I love you" more times than necessary. To appreciate diversity. To forgive.

Remind us that money doesn't matter. Remind us that peace does. Remind us that we're lucky...we got another day.

God Bless America.
