Remembering 9/11

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.

Enjoying the Summer

Well, I’m in Arizona on my last vacation trip before school starts. This summer has had some ups and downs however I’ve been enjoying my so-called “me time”. I’ve got a to-do list for the summer like cleaning the house and declutter my closets. However, I ended the school year been so tired that I didn’t want to waste my little bit of energy on cleaning.  I didn’t get so much done my mind wasn’t there and I wasn’t motivated. I didn’t want to spend my vacation just cleaning. Well, I did a little bit.

I spend my precious time reading a few books. I binge on some TV shows, ride my bike, go for walks, and enjoy the lake. Also, enjoy the company of my grandkids, my husband, and made a few trips. Not too bad.

On the bad side, I did get a few health problems.  Pain on my knees is causing difficulty to walk but it doesn’t stop me at all.  Pain on my right shoulder where I can’t do any movement. I’m getting a physical therapist. And my diabetes is out of control, again.  I will see my Dr. soon.  In a positive thought, I’m alive and blessed with a loving husband and kids.

I still have 2 weeks to get back to work so maybe I can do some decluttering. Or maybe, just relax and enjoy the rest of my summer vacation.
