Living History – A 9/11 Remembrance

The Pink Herald's Blog

As a native New Yorker, I take September 11th very seriously.  Not only was our country attacked, but my home state was attacked.  My daughter is on the cusp of being a teenager (just a few months from now).  This year, I exposed her to what 9/11 really means.

I did my personal remembrance at work.  I posted my favorite songs, shared stories, said more prayers and felt blessed.  I had friends share their memories of the day.  I printed out pictures for the project I would have my daughter complete for her history lesson.

Out of my five children, she wasn’t born when 9/11 took place.  For her, it was a history lesson.  For me, and many others, it was the day the world stood still as we watched in horror as our country was attacked.

When I got home, we opened the laptop, I had her read the…

Over the weekend I flew home for a picnic in honor of family members that have passed on, including my mother. There, I make time for activities I don’t participate in when home (relaxation is one of them!). I decided that while sharing a meal is a bonding experience, so is watching the tube. It was interesting to see my stepfather enjoying my mom’s favorite shows, though I could swear he wasn’t interested back then.  As I settled in across from him to share a connection, I realized he is bonding with her in spirit, through television. Married almost 40 years, most were an uphill battle based on her warrior-like efforts to save her adult children from themselves. It didn’t work, by the way, and I’m going to always believe her struggle to save them is one of the reasons she’s in the grave today. We all have choices, however…

The Responsibility of Being Inspirational.

HorseAddict

At the horse show last weekend a woman came up to me and introduced herself. She was also competing at the show and told me how much she  enjoyed my blog as she could read the posts and say “Yes, I’ve felt like that.” She told me I was “inspirational”.  I was so happy to hear this from her. But it reminded me that in 2016 during the Paralympics I had read of some para-athletes who were not happy being “inspirational”.

At the time I read some articles about this. It seemed that the para-athletes wanted to be just regarded as ordinary athletes. I couldn’t understand it. Athletes, able bodied or parallel who make it to the Olympics are not “ordinary”. All of them have sacrificed and slogged through the hours of training, setbacks, and challenges. These are all super athletes even if they never stand on a podium.  To…
