September 2013














Mummies in HollandI’m sitting here in my home today thinking about the past, back to Sept. 11- 2001, and I just can’t help myself think that life really doesn’t go on. Especially for those that are gone, but even for some that are still here. Will the world ever let us forget the horror? Are we too numb to the present? Can we heal the pain? And will it happen again in our own country or somewhere new?
Stop the murder!
