Reliving Horror; 9/11 All Over the Tube
Last night I sat for a brain-numbing three hours of 9/11 footage. At first I was completely choked-up and was floored to see folks retell their stories of their final calls with their dying loved ones or the freakish survival stories of folks who just happen to choose the right staircase to make it out of the World Trade Center towers just minutes before their collapse. Ultimately, it’s a memory that we will forever live with. A day that rivals any horror, drama or tear-jerker script Hollywood could ever come up with. God willing we will never endure that type of soul-shattering tragedy again.
Mahogany Theme… Do You Know?
Have you had one of those days when you ask yourself, “Do you know where you’re going to; do you like the things that life is showing you?” Well, you know (or should) the words to the Diana Ross, Mahogany theme. Truth is, the question has been repeatedly popping in to my head and the truth is, I don’t know. I’m grateful for my family, my incredible friends and my new-found companions, but I’m perplexed on the “where to” factor. I’m at one of those crossroads where something has got to change. To be clear folks, I’m happy, comfortable and content…but I’m restless. It’s time for a change. In the coming weeks I’ll be exploring (and hopefully sharing with you) changes I’d like to make to improve myself. Please feel free to chime in (you guys are my extended dysfunctional family) to give your opinions.
Big “Ben” Theory
A breath of fresh air, a light in the dark
I enjoyed your banter, from the very start
Today you celebrate that special day
When your poor mom screamed and kicked where she lay
You’re beautiful, funny and definitely smart
Just the man for that special part
An actor by day, a realist by night
May today and always be glorious and bright
September 11 affected all Americans. Many of us are different for that one horrific experience. What personal tragedy has transformed your life and inspired a positive change for you? How are you different for it?
