It's a reflective day for us, for the world. Five years ago, life did change and all of these changes--small ones and profound ones--are still unfolding.
Life goes on, that we know. It's up to us to decide upon and shape what we want our lives to look like.
Most days, I'm very unhappy with what our lives--as a country--and the world--looks like.
I'm trying to stay optimistic, to keep the faith. It's not easy. To raise children to be decent, loving people and to give back to the world in positive, meaningful ways.
Sometimes, life is sobering and I feel like the odds are against me. Against Us. Especially remembering what happened 5 years ago today.
