Yes, people can certainly be evil, and that day we saw evil unfolding. It was a nightmare to watch the terrorist acts and so scary.

I didn’t know you work close to the Memorial site. I am originally from New York, and my brother works near Macy’s. My daughter and I recently visited family in New York city and the suburbs. I cannot bring myself to visit the Memorial site; I just can’t.

Your list of what you are grateful for is a good one. Thank you for your kind words about my daughter!

It was such a searing heartache, a time of deep grief and mourning. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and how things unfolded.

Thank you for such sweet words about being glad we are friends and that you found my blog. I am so thankful for our friendship and that I found your blog as well.

Regarding the goldfish, Ari’s daycare gave it to us about three years ago. While it was really tiny at first, it’s now morphed into a rather large fish. Luckily, our pet sitter has a pond that’s heated in winter and has offered to take the fish when it’s outgrown its 40-gallon tank.

It was an awful day, indeed. A nightmare that didn’t seem that it was really happening.

We will never forget.

I actually work a few blocks away from the Memorial site and it was a quiet day today. Watching the TV at work when they were naming all the people who lost their lives on that day made me feel grateful for many things (and very sad too). I still cannot believe it happened. And I still can’t comprehend how some people can be so damn EVIL inside. UGH!! I remember that day so clearly — It was scary. I went to the site on Day 2 to help and I could not breathe with all the dust still in the air. So many people lost their love ones.

I visited the Memorial recently and wasn’t able to finish viewing everything. It was beautifully done but the details are pretty intense (including recorded phone conversations from those who died). May they rest in peace.

Things I am grateful for: I am grateful to have a place I can call “home” (complicated issue). I am grateful I have a partner who loves me and supports me all the time. I am grateful for you and all the other cancer patients who provide me with support. I am grateful I have a job with good insurance and to have a great medical team. I am grateful I have a list of things to be grateful for and…

…I am glad you have your list as well.

Your daughter is beautiful. xoxo

What a lovely idea to take this day to reflect upon things we’re grateful for. September 11, 2001, seems so long ago and yet at the same time, still feels so very recent. So much loss that day. So much heartache for the whole nation, but especially for those families directly impacted. Thank you for reminding us to stop and think about people and things we have right now and to be grateful for them. I’m grateful for many things and many people. One thing I’m grateful for, Beth, is that I found your blog and that we are friends now. And btw, I didn’t know you had a large goldfish. Thanks for the post. We must not forget.
