...when a way of life was lost forever.
There is of course a new generation - those born post-9/11 - who've never known anything but the America in which we live today.
But for those of us who grew up in pre-9/11 America, the difference - the loss - is staggering.
Pray for our nation.
On this day especially, pray for families and loved ones of the victims of this senseless tragedy, and those who gave their lives trying to save them.
Turning to happier themes, a couple of weeks ago we invited some friends over for an afternoon cookout…
Despite the questionable weather forecast, we had a truly delightful time together.
Karen did her usual fabulous job of meal prep, the rains held off, and we enjoyed a relaxing, late summer afternoon of good food, great company and lively, interesting conversation.
The meal included burgers on the grill, brisket, potato salad, garden salad, veggie pizza, cucumber sandwiches (don’t laugh; they’re really good), cole slaw, watermelon, and blueberry nut squares for dessert.
That and a cooler full of summer refreshments made for a delicious repast.
Looking forward to doing it again.
