Originally I was going to join Gary for Retro Tuesday with old pictures I've been digging up.
The Retro Tuesday I am experiencing today is a snap back to 9.11. Not the kind of retro I would wish on anyone.
Patriots Day is not a holiday here in RI, but it sort of is. Many people run the Boston Marathon, many more go for the celebration. Early battles (Shot Heard Round The World) are reenacted; bombs are not part of it.
I am trying to understand the why of this and trying harder to get past the urge to destroy the perpetrators. Killing people is wrong (or RONG) no matter the circumstances, but it's hard to get past that initial urge to destroy.
No, I am not posting any pictures; there are plenty of images elsewhere. One of my great regrets is that I turned on my tv in time to see the plane heading down the river and hitting the second Tower dead on. No one needs that permanently in her brain.
We will survive and go on.
As always, thanks for stopping by.........*s*
