The television show '102 Minutes That Changed America' which aired on a number of channels this morning was an excellent watch. If you can watch something like this and not be moved, there is something definitely wrong with you.

Saw something I've never seen before - at the start of a CFL game today, when the players came out and lined up, instead of playing the national anthem, they played the U.S. national anthem.

It's absolutely amazing to me, that 10 years later, I could take you to the exact spot where my desk was in my 4th grade math class. I will not forget the events that day. Our school secretary coming in, whispering in my teachers ear, and my teacher breaking down into tears and telling us we were going to go home, because bad people had used airplanes to attack the United States. It was the day I learned what the Pentagon was, it was the day I learned what the World Trade Centers were. I actually got into the office to the TV in time to see the second tower hit. 8-o

Bush's "Bullhorn" speech was probably the best video I saw that day on social media. My friend pulled out the quote from it which I love "The people who knocked down these buildings will hear ALL of us soon"

And along with my random thoughts and musings, something me and some of my friends have discussed is making it a goal and a creed of our specific generation, to never let it be forgotten. I know I'm never going to forget. It is amazing how the world has changed since then, it is amazing that it has been 10 years. God Bless America.

I came across an image article yesterday about Japan. 9/11 this year was also the 6 month anniversary of that massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

2 pictures really got to me. #16, where volunteers lit candles by a replica Statue of Liberty to honor victims of both tragedies, and #34 of a girl smiling next to a picture of her father, killed by the tsunami. If anything it's encouraging to see nations helping each other in times of need, and the resilience of the human spirit.

I agree with this statement wholeheartedly, but I would like to hear how you perceive the change given we are from different generations.
