September 11

written by Julie Sando

I asked my mom which airport I should fly out of as I'd be half way between each one: Boston or Hartford. They both had 8:30am flights to my destination, LAX. She suggested Hartford, so Hartford it was. It happened to be September 11, 2001. The flight that went down was the flight I decided not to take. Instead I was grounded in PA - near the site where the other plane went down.

We can make up all sorts of things. And my initial response for quite some time was fear - I was scared to fly again. It wasn't until my training kicked in and I relaxed and I started to view experiences like this in a whole new light. "Wow, I must have a reason to still be here on earth" became my new perspective.

We can make up any perspective which will change the way we feel. I'll put this one out to you all: How can we make up that the events of September 11 had some sort of positive meaning? (My intention is not to down play the experiences of those who were directly effected, but to offer a way to feel better about the entire situation.)
