Like everyone else, I do remember 9/11/2001.
What I remember about it was that I was, not surprisingly, running on a treadmill while it was occurring. What I also remember is that is was one of those pristine, beautiful autumn days that I just revel in. Crisp, cool, but with a brilliant blue sky and copious sunshine. It was such a disconnect to have such a horrible event occur on such a beautiful day.
In honor of 9/11 I wanted to share a video I recently came across.
While most people find the response of the soldier in camo most appealing, I think the beginning of the video really shows our herd mentality, and it’s something to think on.
At about 1:24 into the video, a fellow speaks up, then another person speaks up, then another. My thought in this is that we do need to be BRAVE in our Post 9/11 world. It seems that most of the people in this video thought the racist treatment of the Muslim employee was entirely disgusting, but most seemed to not want to say anything until someone else spoke up.
