Monday? Really?

>> Monday, September 10, 2007

Like it matters. My days all blend... And right now I am barely coherant. This morning came way too early. I got the girls dressed, Doug off to work and Brenna off to school, ran a few errands, made a quick visit to the hospital, picked up Brenna and now we are home again. The list of things to do is long...

Laundry
Grocery List
Grocery Shopping
Everything needs cleaned
Caelan's birthday party is Saturday (!!!) so I have shopping to do for that as well as cake making
I have lots of great pictures from earlier last week to share

And all I want to do is sleep.

So I will crack open this Pepsi One, throw some laundry in the washer, change one daughter's diaper, convince the other daughter that she needs to sit on the potty and hope that they will both nap soon... And for at least two hours.

Have you forgotten?
This came from my grandmother and I think it is worth sharing:
On Tuesday, September 11th, 2007, an American flag should be displayed
outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States.
Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this anniversary of our country's worst tragedy. We do this in honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms .

In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn't take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds.

Action Plan: So, here's what we need you to do...
(1) Forward this email to everyone you know.
Take a moment to think back to how you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you.

(2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11.
Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don't, then at least make it a priority on this day.

Thank you for your participation.............................
God Bless You and God Bless America

Jody - I haven't been on bloglines since last week. I am so happy to hear that your Dad is doing so much better. :)

We will be participating having our flag out tomorrow. Then again, we fly our flag every single day. :)

Hard to believe it's been six years already isn't it.

Even though we don't live in the states we still hold it very dear to our hearts.

I live in Manhattan, have lived here since I was eighteen years old, was here on 9/11/01, and I forget, sometimes, how this anniversary has become such a symbol, a rallying cry of sorts, for people outside of New York. New York, my city, this place that I love and respect and cherish, voted almost 75% for Kerry in the last presidential election because we here, in this place targeted more than any other place in this great big beautiful nation, have not felt that our president or our government has made us any safer than we were on 9/10/01.
