“Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11.” President Barack Obama
September 11 is a day that sneaks up on me every year, but one that always brings tears. I read the stories, watch the videos, see the pictures and I weep for the senselessness of it. As I was eating breakfast getting ready to write this post I watched this video that a friend shared on Facebook.
It is a day to remember and honor and consider what we can do to stop tragedies like this from happening. But most importantly, it’s a day to love, laugh, and appreciate life. It also happens to be Grandparent’s Day so we’ll be having dinner with my parents.
I did read a book yesterday and I really liked it. D is for Deadbeat by Sue Grafton has been my favorite of the four I’ve read so far. It’s longer and the list of suspects was so long that I really had no idea who the culprit was until she revealed it in the end.
What’s it about – Private detective Kinsey Millhone take a shady case and ends up with a $25,000 check and a dead client.
What did I learn – My life is pretty boring. No shootings, no ex-cons, no affairs. What am I doing wrong?
Who would love it – Detective mysteries lovers and those who like strong female protagonists.
