My 5 year old daughter came home today with a thousand questions about 9/11. Maybe more. I could tell she really needed to talk about it. Just talk. So that was what we did this afternoon. We talked… She started talking about the people who helped. And saved. And shared. Specifically, a story they discussed in class where groups of travelers offered rooms to each other when they were stranded. This was very interesting to her. Because “they didn’t even know each other!” Which made her reflect on the kindness of such an act. Indeed. I started explaining to her that that was the beauty in that awful time. That everyone stood together. It didn’t divide us. I trailed, inadvertently over to the contrast between that time and the morale of our nation today. It got to me. And I cut our conversation short. Much like I’m going to do now.
It’s been a difficult day between that and some family issues my dad and I have been left to iron out.
So….Because it makes me feel better, here are all of my favorite internet dogs..Enjoy!
(In no particular order because greatness knows no rank) 🐶
Jake and Addie
……And one cat. Chippo. Because he’s worth it.
