It's not that i didn't know it was coming up, moreso that i recognize that it's an arbitrary date even though it has extreme historical significance, in the realm of my lifetime at least. Now that I think about it, i remember vividly the thoughts of that day, the moment i heard, everything that was happening and I never want to feel those feelings again.
So I'm sending this out and asking one small favor. Just take a moment today, close your eyes, and think deeply for 5 seconds, 10 seconds, a minute if you don't have kids, whatever works, about Peace. And i don't mean negotiations, or treaties, or anything political, I mean real Peace, a state that our children could grow up in and never have to hear the words war, hatred, enemy, or atrocity again.
It may do nothing more than to give you a moments peace, but then again, it just might.
