Humble



The kid is back in the Big Apple, away at his off-farm job, and so very not here......... although through the wonders of Net and cell phone we keep pretty close all the same.


The other day job training took him to the World Trade Center site. He said that, as he walked down the street by the site, he felt humbled and awed and thought a lot about all the good people who lost their lives there. He wants to take me down to the city so we can look for Carl DiFranco's name on the memorial.


I was humbled that he even reads this blog, and that, while he was doing such exciting new stuff that is going to be so big in his life, he remembered that other young man, so tragically murdered along with thousands of other innocents, by enemies of our nation and our way of life. And touched...I was touched....


I hope I get to make that trip....seems very fitting somehow....

Yer not giving yourself much credit, Mom. Why wouldn't he read your blog - you write beautifully, and you are his mother, who loves him very much. Reading your posts while away from home more than likely eases some homesickness. Y'all are pretty close.

That line got me, Marianne.

" . .so very not here."

Moms understand this so well.

How I hope you get that trip with that very special boy.

And yes, I remember Ronald Orsisni, my 9/11 person. Good Americans going about their business.

Ditto what Jeffro said.

Jeffro, kind words indeed and I thank you

Cathy, thanks, I'm glad you get it too. Glad that they are getting on with their lives but oh, so lonesome for them. I am also glad that the poor souls from 911 are not forgotten at least in some places. I am so afraid that our nation is moving along and leaving them sinking in our wake....we need to remember.

Linda, thanks

I so agree with Jeffro....homesickness is a real thing...staying in touch with real helps.
