I’ve never removed a just-written post before because I do my best to keep my posts civil and non-offensive, so I haven’t seen a reason to.
Today I wrote a post called “Eye Infections.” I was basically just ranting about why my dog’s recurring eye infections, annoying phone issues, and current health issues were frustrating me and how I missed church because I couldn’t stop crying.
Honestly, a pretty typical post for me lately.
Any other day, I wouldn’t have thought twice about leaving that post up.
A few minutes after I posted that rant, I saw a link titled “NYU Student’s 9/11 Video From Her Dorm Room Is Just Now Going Viral…Almost 15 Years Later.” I opened it up. I remembered what day it was.
I essentially cried through that whole video clip. That is a real reason to cry. Not eye infections or shady use phone stores.
I don’t like to downplay people’s emotions. Just because something tragic happened doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to feel sad when you fail or test or when your cat dies or when a date gets cancelled.
But today is not the day to rant about my stupid phone or sick dog.
Though I’m Canadian, and 9/11 happened when I was just 9 years old, it affected me more than a lot of things. I can’t imagine the people who were actually there, or lost loved ones on that day.
Here is the video I watched for anyone who can’t access the first link.
