What are we talking about today?

Some days have themes. I don't necessarily post something in each of these topic areas every week.

Sunday: Church-related or spiritual things.
Monday: Running.
Tuesday: Books.
Wednesday: Transportation.
Friday: Green living.

Live Better

I'm fairly certain that every blogger in America is contractually obligated to write about The Anniversary today. So I shall content myself with saying:

What unites us is stronger than what divides us.
The things we have in common are greater than the differences.
One word of kindness is better than 1000 words of complaint.

Remember, at home and at work, in our streets and in our schools, at the office, at the game, or at the restaurant: We are better together.

(And if you came here looking for a blog post that will both make you cry and give you hope, I suggest you try this one instead. It's brilliant.)

I did go and read her posting...it IS brilliant. So very real..so right there. Canadians and indeed, people all around the world, are with you today in spirit. Keep strong.

I am so very fond of our friends to the north. I know there were some diverted planes on 9/11 that ended up in Canada, and from all accounts, the hospitality was magnificent.

I'd like to come to grad school in Canada-- not just because you are hospitable, but that helps. ;)

@Petty: Thanks for stopping by!

@Nutschell: Thanks! I've done the write-out-my-memory thing before, but I wasn't feeling it this year. Decided to keep it short instead!
