7 Years Ago

I really don't have much to write about except for the fact that time flies and I can't believe it is 7 years ago since the 9/11 attacks. I was in NY just long enough to see the lights they put up in the ground zero site.

I remember being so fearful right after it happened...I was more cautious and suspicious. In my recent visit to NY, I traveled in the subways and around Mahattan almost with no fear. It's funny how fear, once so paralyzing and strong can weaken and disappear. We forget...it's in our nature. Although this morning I was reminded. I kept trying to call Anthony this morning, it would ring once or twice, then go busy. I thought to myself, what if there was another attack?

Our memories & past experiences can re-awaken fear...but we must not let fear take over our lives. Easier said than done. Just remember the power of positive thinking!

Wow, time is really speeding by. Yeah, people seem less frightened of terror attacks now, though of course there's always the possibility of it happening again. I guess it's good to be cautiously optimistic.
