Today's Words of Inspiration - September 11th!

I want to remind you all to take a moment to pray this weekend for the victims, their families, and for our nation at large. If prayer isn't your thing, send positive energy, send it as an embrace that circles our planet.

I know that on the night of New York City's big 'Fashion Night Out' it would probably be much simpler to write about trends, beauty and wonderful shopping opportunities. Parties, cocktails, hors dourves, super models and Fashion are the topic of the day. But today, my mind is elsewhere, on a topic that is not as popular or upbeat.

The repercussions of that day still and will always loom large. I am a New Yorker, I was born here, raised here and have spent my entire professional career earning my living here. In what has to be by far one of the busiest and most hectic cities on the planet.

As some of you may remember from a previous inspiration, I was offered a job in the towers. Had I accepted that position, this community would never have happened! I can't imagine no Ascending Butterfly. Thankfully, I don't have to. Other families were not so lucky.

No matter what your stance is on War in general, please pray for our troops, this is an especially tense weekend for New York City, for our troops overseas, and for all those who serve the community like Policemen and Women, Fire Fighters, and EMT's who are on call and at the ready this weekend in NYC, just in case.

On that day I was working in a Hospital in Manhattan, while it was not nearest to Ground Zero, we did receive 'casualties'. Casualties. What a weird word that is. Bodies of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, who went to work and did not make it home. For reasons I still don't quite frankly understand. From Soul to Soul I can only pray for peace, for understanding, for people to STOP hurting each other oddly enough in the name of Peace. Peace is an action, not just a state of mind. It should practiced, not just preached!

I will be taking a moment of prayer and silence this weekend, I hope you will too!

Where were you on that day?

Today's Inspiration? Peace. Think it, Speak It, and put it into practice DAILY!

  1. Oh wow Tracy! Talk about a "what if" moment! Thank you for sharing this with us. Words can't describe how sad I am about this day. I'm so glad you didn't take that job. Wow, I don't know what else to say. But I am, and definitely will be, thinking about this day tomorrow and many other days as well.

  2. Thank you for your post it still brings tears to my eyes! My daughter was working in mid town and I was not able to put a call through to her,and i felt as though my heart stopped thank god she was alright!!,so my prayers and thoughts are with all the families and friends
    who lost loved ones!! I think war is the perfect descrition of insanity!

  3. @mswonka Very scary 'what if' moment indeed! I'm totally glad I didn't take that job!

  4. @BigHappy I can only imagine how nervous you must have felt, the phone lines were shut down to both homes and business, I remember not being able to get a call out either, all public transpo shut down. Which anyone living in NYC knows we mostly rely on public transpo here. And I agree with your take on war whole heartedly!
