Remembering the 9/11 tragedy reminds me, of the following days when everyone felt united as a nation. You will see American flags and people comforting strangers. Be become one nation under GOD.
Listening to the names of all the victims and seeing their pictures was heartbreaking. It has been twenty years since we as a nation, suffer this awful tragedy. There was no race, age, religion or politics when those planes hit the grounds. We lost so many innocent lives. I still remember myself crying and praying for those families. It felt like I have lost a family member.
Where we are now? What happened to all the love and the caring we all suffer on 9/11/01? Where are it? When I was watching the commemoration of the twenty years all those memories came back like it was yesterday. Those families still grieving their loved ones.
Meanwhile, the Internet has been filled with Karen’s and Kens screaming and treating people like garbage. Videos about racism and shameless actions have been dominating the internet. Where is the kindness and love from those patriots Karen and Ken?
We don’t another 9/11 to be united. Don’t use politics or religion to make excuses to criticize and denigrated our neighbors. Stop making excuses, no one should be treated shamelessly.
I’m tired of the internet posting all those videos of Karen’s and Kens who are a disgraced to this world. With this behavior, we are teaching the new generation to be unkind to others. Let’s change the bad behavior and be a better person. Let’s teach the new generations so they can have a better future.
“Be Strong, because things will get better. It may be stormy now, but it never rains forever”.
This is the way we are feeling. The schools are close and we don’t know if we are going back. This is very stressful when I don’t know if I’m going to have a paycheck. I know we all are in the same boat.
“Take life day by day, and be GRATEFUL for the little things. Don’t get stressed over, what you can’t control.”
I made it through the month of April using my bullet journal. Except for the last week of April when I ended with a kidney infection and I almost ended in the ER. Most of the time I was in bed with lots of pain. I was treated with antibiotics for seven days and missed a day of work. Imagine working with that pain, feeling chills, and fever. I still made it through the day until Friday when I can’t handle it anymore. The pain is over and I’m feeling stronger by the day.
I was telling my husband since I’m getting closer to the big 6-0, I’m feeling too sick and old. He smiles, he knows when to be quiet. He’s a smart man.
Going back to my bullet journal for the first month it feels I accomplished a few things. It’s not a fancy journal with drawings or stickers, however it’s doing the purpose of keeping me on track and not forgetting the tasks that can later it makes me feel sorry for not finishing on time. Starting in May I make a nice page for scheduling my books for review and more time for writing for my blog.
What do I have for the month of May? Well, I’m counting the days for my summer vacation only 16 days of work (school ends on the 24th). Preparing a few trips for the summer and to be with my wonderful girls who are also waiting to spend time with grandma.

As children our mothers keep telling us to be careful they always want to protect us at all cost. As a mother myself and a grandmother that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. I’m sure all the mothers of the world are doing the same. We try to protect them from danger and mostly from any bad influences.
When my children were in school, I keep reminding them to be careful who they select as friends. I would tell them to pick the right people in their lives. They have some ugly ones, but after all they find the right ones at the right moment. I’m glad they still have the same friends from school.
No matter if my children are now adults I still remind them to be careful and to not trust everybody.
