On this Anniversary of September 11th, it is so important for us to remember……

On Monday, we e-mailed jokes. 
On Tuesday, we did not. 

On Monday, we were fussing about praying in school. 
On Tuesday, we would have been hard pressed to find a school where someone was not praying. 

On Monday, our heroes were athletes. 
On Tuesday, we relearned who heroes are. 

On Monday, there were people trying to separate us by race, sex, color, and creed. 
On Tuesday, we were all holding hands. 

On Monday, we were irritated that our rebate checks had not arrived.
On Tuesday, we gave money away gladly to people we had never met. 

On Monday, we were upset that we had to wait 5 minutes in a fast food line.
On Tuesday, we stood in line for 3 to 5 hours to give blood for the dying. 

On Monday, we argued with our kids to clean up their rooms.
On Tuesday, we couldn’t get home fast enough to hug our kids. 

On Monday, we went to work as usual.
On Tuesday, we went to work, but some of us didn’t come home. 

On Monday, we had families.
On Tuesday, we had orphans. 

On Monday, September 10th, life felt routine. 
On Tuesday, September 11th, it did not. 

What a difference a day makes.

In YOUR own life, how has a particular day made a real difference in how you see others and in how you see yourself?
