Reality hits you hard bro

This is from a Phoenix news story.  As the story about a traffic accident aired, it was really fun to watch the man, Geroge Lindell, because he was so animated!  I thought it must have been that he still had so much adrenilin pumping through him from the accident, but he really is this way. 

Since this was on the news a couple of days ago, the interview clip has been shown on stations across the nation and even on Glenn Beck.

"Songify" took the interview and made it into a cute little song clip.  Hope you enjoy it.

In God We Still Trust

This song is wonderful!  It's by Diamond Rio.  This needs to be one of the songs we choose as often as we choose "I'm Proud To Be An American".  It reminds us of where we do turn when things get scarry and difficult.  It could also help us to chose better polititians
By the Way--The mother of their keyboard player went to high school with my parents.  She is a wonderful person.

Happy Accident

This couple is just too cute for words. Now I know I'm not the only person who burps at inopportune times.

My Memory of the Attack

10 years ago, I was up earlier than normal and decided to watch TV news instead of reading the newspaper. I came into the newscast about the time they were trying to figure out what had happened at the first of the towers. They talked about a plane but most thought it was some kind of bomb. Then the unthinkable happened and another huge plane went into the other tower. I think the only thing I could do was gasp! That was when the tears started and they weren't going to stop for the rest for the day.  I kept switching from one news station to another to get all the information I could. There had to be some kind of reasoning for all this.

Just like most of the nation, I was on my couch glued to the news coverage for the next few days. Trying to take in the magnitude of what had happened was difficult. For the next week the whole nation was quiet; no planes were in the air! I live by an airport so it was really noticeable. Then when the planes began to fly again, we would stop and listen to each one until we were sure it wasn't going down. It took a long time to stop listening to the planes.

Maybe we need to listen to everything more closely; like the voice inside that tells us to be more gentle and kind, to be more aware and proactive, to be ready give our all.
